we decided to just walk to the fort. The walk to the fort is up pretty steep hills and streets. The fort cost $3.00 pp and the views a spectacular! After the fort we walked around town. It was a very nice evening. Headed back to the ship for dinner since we had late seating it was perfect.
Last time I was there was 5 years ago and I didn't think it was as nice or clean as it did then. We did the Sapphire Beach and Island Drive. This was not so great. Sapphire Beach is very small and looks like you are entering a run down time share. I am sure at one time it was really nice. Beach area is very small and can get very crowed. The people that work there are very friendly. I was hoping for something a little nicer.
I was concerned about going here, but turned out to be gorgeous! It was nice since we were picked up by a boat from the cruise ship and taken to a resort. The workers were all friendly and helpful. The water was crystal clear. Be ward again this resort has European guests and there was some topless sun bathers. The fresh coconut drink was so good and refreshing it is a must.
After being told the night before that it was going to be a sunny day and UV index of 11 we were really excited! Then we wake up to major overcast, storm clouds and chilly. It was very disappointing. We got off walked around a little and then went back to the ship.
Nothing you can do about mother nature, but it was probably a blessing since we had gotten a lot of sun the days before.
