This is post 2 from Everyone's Travel Club's trip to the Virgin Islands! In post 1 we landed on St. Thomas, woke up the next day and ferried to Virgin Gorda. We set out to kayak around one of the prettiest, but not the best in our book (more on that later), bays on the island. We threw the inflatable kayak and gear brought from Seattle in the truck and took off to Savannah Bay.
Savannah Bay is minutes from downtown Spanish Town (the locals call town 'the Valley'). The road once you get really close looks a little washed out, see the pic below, but there are a few parking spots close to the beach once you pull in.
The beach was pretty empty while we were there. There always seemed to be charter dive boats anchored out past the reefs. They had large groups of high schoolers (a.k.a. no booze). They were respectful, quiet (mostly underwater the whole time), and too young and supervised to get crazy! We kayaked about a half an hour in either direction, checked out Pond, Little Dix, and Mahoe Bays nearby, snorkeled, and chilled by the beach.

P.S. As I type this (late July) it is 53 degrees and raining back home in Seattle.
