Beautiful scenery especially the marina at Captain Oliver's. There is also a great little informal restaurant/bar called Dingy Dock. Great happy hour and the food is quite reasonable and good.

Some beautiful views and photo ops but no real activities. One hotel / resort. Marina is handy for travel to St Barts.

The area was very quiet, but beautiful. A nice change from some other areas on the island. A little out of the way, but not hard to find.

Tranquillity abounds. Beach food and at night Daniels by the sea are all good. There is limited parking-travel in 1 car.

Kind of a sleepy little area, not for anyone looking for a lot of activity. There are lovely marinas, hills with private villas, and the Weston hotel and casino is in the area.
