    I know there are some BVI Travel vets in this forum.

    My wife and I are headed to Peter Island and Virgin Gorda in early June.

    Any must see places or restaurants? On Virgin Gorda we will be staying in Katitche Point Great House. First villa experience anywhere, even after 5 trips to SBH and 3 to Anguilla.

    Is Tortola worth seeing? Crime an issue there?

    Looking forward to hearing back! Pix look great

    We have been to both. Tortola was okay. I was actually a little disapointed with Cane Garden Bay. It gets some much hype,perhaps too much. However, I prefer beaches w/o a lot of buildings and such on them...
    Can't wait for your trip report.

    Hoping to make it back to Anguilla this May.

    I agree with Carol....Cane Garden Bay is ok...not bad but not great..Quitos bar at night is cool.....a lot of crime on the increase in Tortola..

    Virgin Gorda is nice but DO NOT go the Baths when the cruise ships are in...

    go to Jost Van Dyke...at least for the day....thats my favorite of the bunch

    Thanks for the feedback. How do you know when the cruise ships are at the Baths? They post the schedule someplace?

    IS Virgin Gorda most like which of the following (trying to set my expectations)

    -Turks and Caicos
    -Anguilla
    -Harbour Island
    -SBH
    -Antigua

    if you see a cruise ship in.....they are at the Baths...count on it...

    Virgin Gorda is nothing at all like SBH...a little like Antigua..a little like T&C's.... nothing like Anguilla...Harbour Island I havent been to

    We are tingling to a T -23 to BVI and your suggestion is completely on the books! The painkiller is a rum drink? Or much more? We are saling using the Moorings. The kids are pumped.

    What is in a Painkiller? And is Foxys Firewater something to try as well?

    Thanks for the help.

    From Pusser's webpage:

    WORLD FAMOUS PUSSER’S PAINKILLER®
    The infamous drink we’re known for throughout the Caribbean. A delightful blend of Pusser’s Rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, and cream of coconut, served on the rocks with an orange slice and a cherry, then topped off with freshly grated nutmeg.

    Painkiller® Ingredients
    The Painkiller® is a blend of Pusser’s Rum with 4 parts pineapple juice, 1 part cream of coconut and 1 part orange juice served over the rocks with a generous amount of fresh nutmeg on top. You have a choice of numbers 2, 3 or 4, which designate the amount of Pusser’s Rum! Cheers!

    Painkiller #2 – 2 parts Pusser’s Rum
    Painkiller #3 – 3 parts Pusser’s Rum
    Painkiller #4 – 4 parts Pusser’s Rum
