Guanaja 16.27N 85.52W Mar 21 – Mar 25 2007
We set sail for Guanaja, which is tallest of the Bay Islands discovered by Columbus on his 4th and final journey in 1502. The town settlement is unique in that it is two small islands in the bay…very little development exists on the big island itself. There are no roads, no cars, and no traffic, only sidewalks in the settlement, along with a menagerie of canals.
Checkout procedures were easy and we took advantage of a weather window without seeing all the sites such as Michael’s Rock on the north shore or Josh’s Cay which is quite popular with the cruisers, however we did enjoy the grand re-opening of the Manatee Restaurant which was severely damaged during the last hurricane season.
