I'm thinking about coming to the VI for my honeymoon and plan on renting a bareboat for a week or so. I live in Alabama, and at some of the restaunt/marinas on the Gulf Coast you can bring your catch to the restaurant and they will cook it for you. I was wondering if there were any places like that around the VI? If not, does anyone know if you can just take a grill on a beach somewhere, or is that prohibitted? Also, if anyone has an opinion on what the best book is to read up on the islands, it would be a great help.

A majority of restaurants will cook your catch for you, but some of them make you sign a waiver releasing them from liability in the case of fish poisoning (sigateura -sp?). Some beaches you may grill on, others not. For example, NOT on Magens (unless you use their grills when renting a a shed), or Coki, or Sapphire, etc. But you can on, say, Hull Bay, or Lindqvist. Won't your boat have one on-board, though? Use that one, that's the best way to go.

Hey James what part of Bama are you from?

Really you can get lots of books on the islands but the best information that you can get are from this board and about 3 others. When is your honeymoon? We are coming from Mobile on Oct 22nd. I have to get my list of books together for you. Which islands do you want to visit? It will help me to determine which books you may want to look at. There is always Frommer's but give some ideas of what you like to do and there are other options. Are you just gonna bareboat it or are you gonna see land also?
