I don’t know about you, but it’s cold here in Florida right now. The stories in this week’s Caribbean Wrap Up have me thinking of a warm blue water and beach bar bliss.

This week’s Wrap Up includes stories about a “Crappy” rum punch on Anguilla, a private beach bar in the BVI as well as one that is considered Taboo, a sailing adventure through the Grenadines, and why the small island of Tobago is so special.

Enjoy the escape Castaways!

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

Your Own Private Beach Bar in the British Virgin Islands: Here I was, at a fully-stocked, fully staffed bar on a spectacular beach in the British Virgin Islands, and it was empty. There were only a few clouds in the sky, and the water was calm in the way that Virgin Islands water always seems to be. –Story by Caribbean Journal

Trek Stop: Foxy’s Taboo in Jost Van Dyke – We Forbid You to Miss This Place: Foxy’s Taboo on Jost Van Dyke is an offshoot of the wildly popular Foxy’s Bar and Restaurant and the obvious lunchtime stop for those trekking over to nearby Bubbly Pool. But, this charming venue with an innovative Mediterranean-Caribbean dinner menu should certainly be sought out by anyone traveling through the British Virgin Islands. Here’s why. –Story by Caribbean Soul Trekkers

Tiny Tobago Shows Tourists The Real Caribbean: But what this tiny isle offers is a glimpse into the real Caribbean, beyond its beaches lies a whole world of culture, heritage and wildlife which belies its small size. Unlike other Caribbean destinations it has rejected the standard, polished high-rise hotel developments and instead offers one of the best opportunities for authentic Caribbean travel experiences, where we as tourists can immerse ourselves not only in its warm waters, but in its food, nature and history. –Story by PanAmericanWorld.com

A sailor’s course through the Grenadines: The Grenadines are known for their magical coves, beautiful beaches and sandy-bottom bays, which make them perfect for anchoring and exploring. And as it’s only a maximum half-day sail to get from one to the next, you can move around the islands at a comfortable, relaxed pace. –Story by the Miami Herald

Rum Journal – In Anguilla, The Best Kind of “Crappy” Rum Punch: By the end of your stay at Anguilla bed-and-breakfast Las Esquinas, you’ll have enjoyed the intimacy of a guest house, the luxury of a private villa, and the amenities of a hotel. But first, within minutes of arriving, you’ll enjoy something else: Las Esquinas’ Crappy Rum Punch. –Story by Caribbean Journal
