It’s now a given that my Sundays are meant for being on the water. Last Sunday I got invited to a boat cruise as a celebration for a friend of a friend’s birthday. I agreed to go as it was a long weekend and I had nothing else planned.
The boat was set to leave at 10:30 a.m. SHARP but as typical Antiguan (Caribbean) people we left sometime after 11:00 a.m. On our departure out of the harbor the water was a bit choppy so the ride wasn’t as enjoyable.
My favorite part about this boat was the fact that their was a top deck. It was practically the worst area to be with all the rocking, but it had the best views. We ventured west of the island passing various popular beaches as well as the hidden gems. We continued heading around the island until we got to the southern part seeing areas such as Jolly Harbor and Hermitage Bay.
After making a U-turn we ventured back to a hidden beach which we passed on the way. This beach seems only accessible by boat unless you do some extreme hiking through the bush. I believe its name is Pinching Bay.
The water was nice and shallow, as well as pretty clear. There was food, drinks, music and some pretty cool people, what more can you ask for?
In all the day was pretty awesome and I couldn’t catch myself Monday morning for work *oops*. But as they say, “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.” So let’s see how that goes!
