Still Sleeping on Scilly Cay, Anguilla After All These Years

I enjoyed the best lobster of my life on a private islet just offshore Anguilla several years ago. Scilly Cay, however, was not the place.

Private Island Social Distancing In The Prickly Pear Cays

Devil’s Island, French Guiana – Hell on Earth for 100 Years

Devil's Island may look like an idyllic Caribbean paradise, but this French Guiana outpost actually better espouses its infamous name than its appearance.

Ilet Ramier, Martinique: Uncommon Attraction

You can't sail into the Bay of Fort-de-France from the south without passing Ilet-Ramier. Once you see it, though, you may not want to keep going at all.

Ilet La Perle, Martinique: Uncommon Attraction

Standing on Anse Couleuvre, Ilet La Perle is impossible to miss. It's nice to admire from shore, but it's La Perle's undersea attractions that truly amaze.

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, I'm happy to report that Turtle Beach and Buck Island, St. Croix remain just as awesome as ever.

All things being equal, I'd rather find myself in the surrounds pictured above... Buck Island... St. Croix... U.S. Virgin Islands... Home.

Living It Up on Lime Cay, Jamaica: Uncommon Envy

Most people wouldn't associate a private-island beach escape with Kingston. The capital of Jamaica is as prominent a city as we have in the Caribbean.
