"I eat breakfast at Eden Rock on St. Jean Beach in St. Barts. I
like the view because I used to live in St. Jean. I wrote a couple
of books and albums there, and I used to rent a room at the Eden
Rock. It was kind of my office."
"The most deserted beaches I've ever seen are on Long Island in the
Bahamas. There are a couple of little hotels there and this
incredibly long pink sand beach. The beaches in Barbuda, off of
Antigua, are absolutely beautiful, too. The reefs have some of the
best diving in the world."
"Up-island in the Bahamas, I'd have to say Harbour Island. You can
fish there, and there are nice restaurants and a marina. Just look
up "Bonefish Joe" Cleare, and he'll take you fishing. I think every
island has a Bonefish Joe, but he's probably the best one."
"There are beaches in Jamaica, but I go for the mountains. I really
like islands with mountains. It's that incredible
rivers-meet-the-ocean kind of thing. Dominica is probably my
favorite, and Jamaica as well. I like the Cockpit Country up in the
Jamaican mountains. Tropically lush plants. And it just smells
good. You get away from the heat of the beach and get into
altitude, and there are farms up there and beautiful rolling hills
and mountains and rivers, and you can see the ocean."
"I like to eat at my own restaurants in Jamaica. Margaritaville in
Montego Bay, and Marguerite's, which is the restaurant next to it.
Marguerite's is the best restaurant in MoBay, and not just because
I happen to be in business with them. It's kind of a combination of
jerk and Cajun, and it's really nice there. I'm getting ready to go
down in a couple of weeks to open Island Village [a Margaritaville
clone] in Ocho Rios. Then there's a little hotel and restaurant
called The Caves in Negril, which is a great spot. It's just basic
Jamaican: beans and rice and jerk. It's also a great place to stay
because the rooms are carved out of caves."
