We are headed down this week to the Fort Myers Area. We are staying at the Marriott Sanibel Harbor. Does anyone know of a good place to do a beach day on Sanibel or Fort Myers beach. Looking for loungers and umbrellas. Restaurant or bar close would be optimal.

Just booked a week on Tortola, land based. Managed to sneak a long weekend on St John during Covid, but had to divert my sailing trip to the Exumas this past winter. Was an excellent alternative but missing my BVI's. I am hoping Quito is performing , want to see our favorites, also the Elm Tones. Pay a visit to White Bay and Smugglers. Hope to see some TTOL'ers while we are there. Will be down Jan 14-23. Doing a happy dance!!!
Governor Bryan has announced that the lead time for the COVID-19 test prior to entering the USVI from the BVI will return to the earlier requirement. I have only listened to his press conference and have not yet seen it in writing but I believe it will be a test within 5 days of travel from the BVI to the USVI by water. I believe the CDC requirement will remain in force for air travel from the BVI to the USVI.
The video of Governor Bryan's press conference is posted on the USVI Facebook page "Government House - US Virgin Islands".
Has anyone here cleared into the Dutch side on a boat in recent months? Some sites say that one needs to use an agent (at $200-300) while cruisers who cleared in there (but that I can't reach now) said that this is not necessary, as does the noonsite page for St. Martin.
I'll be sailing there in a couple of weeks. I think I've cleared into the Dutch side about 20 times or more and really don't think an agent is, or should be, necessary.
The BVI Government web site has been updated to provide the Travel Protocols effective today, the 1st of October, 2021. This is now linked to the "Entry Protocols" button on the home page which had been obsolete for some time. This statement clarifies the quarantine requirements that are still required for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travelers. For the moment, this appears to be the most complete and accurate statement of protocols in one place. I'm sure that won't last.
