I had been staring at this particular date on the calendar for quite some time, the day in question was a limin’ beach day in the pristine Tobago Cays.
The Tobago Cays are a national marine park in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Many visitors have said that this small, reef protected cluster of islands is the most beautiful place in the Caribbean. The Caribbean is home to thousands of beautiful islands, though after spending a day in the Tobago Cays it’s hard to argue with this statement. Gin clear water, gentle calm seas, swaying palms and not a building or sign of civilization in sight. It’s just you, the sea, a few deserted islands and a hand full of anchored boats, doesn’t get a whole lot better than that. Well, toss in a cooler of cold Carib and even a great tropical paradise can improve just a tad.
The star of this Island Lime Video episode is the island of Petit Bateau. It’s one of the 5 islands that make up the Tobago Cays. It’s hard to put into words the feeling that fills you while walking the white sand of this small island. The salty air blowing across your face, the waves kissing your ankles and a tidal wave of contentment washing across your soul, a definite pinch me setting. Again, words don’t do the Tobago Cays justice. I’m going to shut-up and let this Island Lime Video say what I can’t.
