Just back from Tortola! Highlights!

Just back from our first trip to Tortola - fabulous!! Stayed at Long Bay Beach Resort - great! Took a snorkel daysail on the Kuralu - the best!! Our best meal was at Quito's Gazebo - terrific food right on the water's edge & entertainment. Our next best meal was at Palm's Delight Also went to Sugar Mill (the most expensive of all) but not worth the $ in my opinion. Took Speedy's Ferry to Virgin Gorda & the Baths - beautiful! Took the free ferry to Marina Cay, wanted to see Robb White's house from his book, Two On An Isle.
Happy to answer any questions.

Hi Marie! I'm glad you listened to some of my suggestions, LOL!!! i KNOW you had a great time- I can't wait to go back next year. Which room did you choose at LBR? Did you ferry to Tortola or do it by plane?Agree that Marina is a cool place to just veg. Liked sitting on top of the hill feeling the breeze, Painkiller in hand. Be sure to post a trip report on traveltalkonline, OK?

Why did you go to Tortolly 3X if there were no highlights. Troll ALERT! Tortolly can be wonderful depending on what what your looking for.

After the first 2 trips usually most folks can figure out wether they like the island.

To Linda:
We stayed in Villa 13 which was a great location for us - just steps down to the Beach Cafe (we had the package with breakfast every morning included), the beach there was less rocky & great for swimming (water shoes made it even easier) & also it was near the reception area. I requested the lowest level villa as I do not enjoy walking up tremendous hills (as I learned at Anse Chastanet in St. Lucia.)
We opened our triple screen doors at night & it was super cool & we loved hearing the ocean waves.
We flew into Beef Island as I learned from posts on several forums that taking a ferry from St. Thomas could require a sleep-over there. We actually enjoyed the 45 min. taxi ride as it gave us an overview of the entire island when we arrived.
As for a trip report on TTOL, I haven't been able to access it in over a week.
