Bitter End Yacht Club,
a venerable sailing
institution with its unique
history, stands out as an romantic resort as well, a favorite of
honeymooners "eloping" to paradise.
"The shower is
open to these fabulous views," waves the hostess, high over the sea in a
rustic villa, "and the
showering bride can be seen from the bedroom," explaining the
proper honeymoon protocol.
Bitter End sits on magnificent
North Sound, a boater's
dreamworld, seldom fully explored, somewhat intimidating (see
picture of its reef-filled entrance), yet so
full of history from the "days of sail"--the "Bitter End" adjoining the Anegada Passage, last
"rest stop" before crossing the Atlantic--and such a place for
adventure, both on water and land.
