Very untouristy - no high rises, no chain businesses (because there are no
beaches). Beautiful island, well-maintained cottages - mostly white with
red roofs and green shutters. No slums. Friendly people. Most
"happening" town is Windwardside, with a few small (5-10 room)
hotels, and some good restaurants. Best meal was at Brigadoons. Wanted to
try, but couldn't get into The Rainforest (Ecolodge's restaurant).

Dive routine is: get picked up in AM by taxi (van), and take
entertaining/scenic ride (this is a VERY vertical island) down to the one
small bay/marina, motor out, do a two tank dive, return, and either stick
around for the one tank afternoon dive, or return by waiting taxi to hotel
for lunch and afternoon hike.

Would probably stay at Juliana's next time - there would be less traffic
noise than at Scout's Place. Friday night was burger/movie night at The
Tropics (Juliana's restaurant), and fun Karaoke at the restaurant/bar at
Scout's Place. Sea Saba had the only dive shop in town - the other two dive
outfitters are located down at the marina. Don't bother with a rental car -
either walk or take a taxi. The road is extremely narrow and STEEP, and
there are good hiking trails all over.
