Bay Bristo is one of my favorite spots on Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos. Clint and I discovered it many years ago when it was a sleepy little cafe´ just two steps above the sand. We stopped by again a few months ago and it’s charm has only increased over the years. Their unpretentious ambiance and spectacular view is always mesmerizing.

Nisbet Plantation, Nevis – One of the Friendliest Places on Earth

Nisbet Plantation, Nevis – One of the Friendliest Places on Earth

The island of Nevis is  perched off St. Kitts’ southern shore like an emerald punctuation point.  And although this region of the Caribbean is always referred to as St. Kitts and Nevis (with Nevis taking second billing), for me Nevis is the star.  While St. Kitts has embraced cruise ships, large resorts and casinos, Nevis […]
