  • It?s A Dad?s Life at Magens Bay, St. Thomas
    Like any dad who’s enjoyed raising his kids near the sea, I’ve come to appreciate the beach WAY MORE in my parenting years than I ever did as a kid. The therapeutic peace and tranquility are exponentially amplified, of course, after you cede your carefree younger years to daily scolding, schooling, and stressing over your little ones. The water, more refreshing. The salt air, more crisp. The sun, more salubrious. Best of all, the beach is the ultimate baby-sitter, providing an endless stream of diversions, thrills, and curiosities for kids to experience. In the early morning hours on tranquil shores like those found along Magens Bay in St. The post It’s A Dad’s Life at Magens Bay, St. Thomas appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Beached At Buck Island, St. Croix
    Beached is one of those funny words. It’s mostly negative, conjuring images of struggling sea creatures that wandered too close to shore, or we creatures who strayed too long at the buffet line. For me, though, when I’m back home in St. Croix and lucky enough to be out at Buck Island, being beached is something altogether different. Something special, fun. Something I never want to end. That was certainly the case on the occasion that I snapped the image above six years ago. It was a partly-cloudy Saturday of intermittent showers that left the great Turtle Beach, which runs along Buck Island’s west end, near-empty most of the day, a rarity on any weekend in St. The post Beached At Buck Island, St. Croix appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Sauntering Out To Sea On Eagle Beach, Aruba
    We’ll definitely get our exercise… The thought crossed my mind soon after checking into the fab Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort with the wife last summer and staring out at the view from our balcony. Eagle Beach, it seemed, was not only Aruba’s best beach, it was also its widest. From the ground floor of the Tara wing where our room was located, it was a good two-to-three minute walk to the sea! Our steps were of the very, very leisurely variety, of course. Bucuti’s no kids policy and predilection toward peaceful natural sounds ?? the surf, the birds, the breeze through the trees ?? over piped-in party playlists easily induces such sluggary.

  • Splashing Around Negril, Jamaica
    Negril brings out the kid in you like few places I’ve ever experienced. Four miles of pristine white sands stretching along some of the most vibrant aquamarine seas found anywhere in the Caribbean will do that. Negril is much more than its beautiful beach, though. Snorkeling or scuba diving Booby Cay, cliff jumping, bird/alligator watching along the Black River, and this blue hole ensure that the uncommon traveler will never lack for excitement and adventure here. The icing on the cake, though, is that amazing beach, its pristine waters just perfect for channeling the childhood joy you once had for little things like splashing around with your best friend… Wish you were here..?

  • Experience Sunrise Over Luquillo Beach, Puerto Rico
    There is another… You already know my brother/UC partner Patrick, he of the mad photo skills, adorable tykes, and NYC address. But, did you know there’s another Bennett brother? Our big brother, Peter, doesn’t return to the islands to reconnect with his West Indian roots as often as we do. When he does, though, it does it BIG. The man has spent the better part of the past month (yes, a month!) trekking around the north coast of Puerto Rico with his teenage son. Their adventures have taken them to Loiza, Old San Juan, Piñones and all parts in-between, the two of them gorging on mofongo, empanadas, and Malta India much as we used to as kids visiting the island for swim meets way back when.

  • Deal Of The Week: Best Bargains to the BVIs
    Damn you, Walter Gibat! You don’t know him. Before last week, you never even heard of him. These past few days, though, you’ve been consumed with contempt for him. Walter Gibat, grand-prize winner of our BVIs Rum and The Sea Giveaway. Yes, it could’ve been you making plans to cash-in on a week-long sailing adventure in and around the British Virgin Islands aboard a swanky Sunsail catamaran. Alas, there could be only one winner, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on your BVI travel dreams. On the contrary, there are scores of great deals to be had enabling uncommon travelers to enjoy these sensational islands on the cheap.

  • Heart Set On Sailing San Blas, Panama
    Since he secured his captain’s license three years ago, Patrick has taken us vicariously to the Abacos, St. Martin, St. Barths, the BVI’s, St. Lucia, Grenada, and the Grenadines. You may have noticed, though, that he’s actually NEVER TAKEN ME WITH HIM! In truth, I am much more to blame for this. And no, it’s not because I doubt his sailing prowess… Not really. Scheduling conflicts and Real World demands have always conspired to keep me land-locked during my brother’s seafaring adventures. Whenever he gets around to charting a course to the spot pictured above, though, you can be sure I won’t be left at the dock.

  • Yolo Rum ? Worth Drinking More Than Once
    Yolo ? You Only Live Once. Could there be a more fitting acronym/adage for our style of uncommon travel and/or the prevailing times in which we live? Have the dessert. Buy the dress. Take the trip. Tomorrow’s not promised to anyone, so might as well live it up in the time we’ve got, right? At the 2015 Miami Rum Renaissance Festival, I discovered a rum that in name posits itself as the tipple of choice for just such devil may care revelry. Yolo Rum has roots in Panama, the brand among the latest popular expressions produced by Cuban master ronero, Don Pancho, he of Origenes, Selvarey, and Panamonte fame, to name a few.

  • Amazing Anse Crawen, Terre-de-Haut, Guadeloupe
    For such a small place (just 2.32 square miles!), Terre-de-Haut has a surprising number of great beaches. The petit and picturesque tropical paradise within the Îles des Saintes, Guadeloupe is home to more than 10! Anse Crawen is not the best of them. Located at the end of the road that leads to the farthest reaches of the island’s southwestern edge, Crawen’s shoreline is a little craggy in spots, rocks beneath the waves, particularly to the left, requiring one to enter the water with caution. Sands of Anse Crawen on Terre-de-Haut, Guadeloupe | SBPR The sand, too, is not most everyone’s ideal, grey streaks reminiscent of La Grande Soufrière volcano on nearby Basse-Terre in stark contrast to the crisp white shores found elsewhere on Terre-de-Haut.

  • The Peculiar Parochial History of Protestant Cay, St. Croix
    This place brings out the naughty in me. Well, at least it used to. During the carefree days of my youth in St. Croix, Hotel On The Cay was a frequent Saturday hangout among my group of friends… much to the chagrin of management. All but one of us would swim the 200 or so yards from the Christiansted waterfront over to The Cay, the better to avoid the ferry fee. The lone rider was in charge of getting our cooler across so we wouldn’t have to buy beers at the restaurant. Economics! We’d set up shop on the beach, always conspicuously close to off-island visitors of the fairer sex in hopes of enticing a bit of adventuring to the “other side” of the Cay, away from prying eyes.
