For the boys’ last day we took the cut to the sound side and fished as we made our way to the marina. Remember it is called “fishing” not “catching” but we did manage to reel in some seaweed.
We rode the swells into the marina and were welcomed back with smiles and helping hands. Any of you boaters that haven’t made this stop, be sure to add it to your “must stop” list. While the approach can be tricky at times, it is well worth the pay off. The club house has no rivals, the Wi-Fi is part of the deal, the free laundry facilities are equipped with the big machines and the showers are stocked with the Sandals signature amenities. Besides that, there is a nearby market with shuttle service. Like I said, a must stop.

We strolled along the expansive beach below the Grand Isle Resort and the huge Sandals complexes, stopping to collect shells and take an occasional dip before heading back to the marina to luxuriate in their well appointed showers.
While the Sandals Resort is closed to boaters unless you purchase an expensive pass, the bar and restaurant at the lovely Grand Isle Resort is open to the marina guests. We made a reservation for dinner there and enjoyed their yummy Spinach and Artichoke Dip as a little teaser. The staff here is cheerful and the food is tasty so be sure to give them a little of your business when you stop. It was the perfect end to the boys’ escape from the cold.
