West Coast

Most of the year the waters are calm, sometimes flat and I have never seen anything prettier than the colours of the sea on that coast, especially in summer.  It is totally opposite to the East Coast and because the island is so small, you can get from The East Coast to the West Coast in about half an hour to three quarters of an hour if you know the way.

Drive along the West Coast, when you see the beach, stop and enjoy. The pictures that I have here saw so much more than I can.

Look for crabs and birds, fishing boats, drift wood, the photo opportunities are endless.  If you possibly can, catch a few sunsets on this coast.  They always surprise you, sometimes it looks as if you will get the perfect sunset and it is disappointing and other times it is breathtaking.  If you are lucky, you can catch one of the boats or cruise liners right in line with the setting sun.

Our sunsets are very short and change from one minute to the next. Get to the beach about half an hour before the sun is to set, enjoy the beach, the relaxation and watch as the sky changes from bright to radiant.  If you are really lucky and have a long lens, you can catch the green flash as the sun disappears below the horizon.
