Blog Post 16 by Jon Sanders: Road Town, BVI
Jon Perie Banou and the British Virgin Islands (BVI’s).
I’m still here, parked a day or two at Cane Garden Bay, BVI. Wonderful Bay, nice beach restaurants and bars. Cane Garden Bay is on the main island, Tortola.
Road Town, the capital of British Virgin Islands, is on the other side of the Island. To get from Cane Garden to Road Town (by taxi) is over hills: big hills, with much vegetation; steep winding road – ears pop as one nears the top. More than 1000 ft up. (Near 1337 ft). Divide that by 3.3, and you have meters if you must.
The view is fabulous! Not just of the bay or Road Town, but of islands and islands in a vast blue sea: BVIs and the overlapping US Virgin Islands. Just terrific!
From Puerto Rico (US) in the west, US VI’s, & BVI’s in the east are the Leeward Islands.
Like any other day, monitored by The United States Coast Guard (USCG), Puerto Rico, on emergency channel VHF 16, give warnings and alerts.
