Getting there is an adventure in itself!
Posted Jun 28, 2007
Nail Bay is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty: flowers in every color, palm trees, pristine beach, great snorkeling, even the remains of an abandoned sugar mill. However, as of now, to get there one leaves the paved main road and, for slightly over a mile, one travels on a rutted road up, down, and around the volcanic hills, driving British style on the left hand side of the road, in a car designed for the American market, i.e., steering wheel on the left, and the deep blue sea is sometimes just over one's shoulder. However, after just a few days we adjusted to the road and think of it as part of a really wonderful adventure. The hotel is in a beautiful location. Also enjoyed climbing in, out, over, under, and through the labyrinth of boulders known as The Baths at Virgin Gorda. The road to the abandoned copper mine, and the mine itself, can take your breath away. All the people we met were genuinely friendly. Our deluxe hotel room had a kitchenette and the balcony had a gas grill. It was a good vacation.
