Sandals South Coast - Part 3

Sandals South Coast swim up bar


Finally, the winds had died down and water sports was up and running again. I thought I’d better get my wakeboarding in as early as possible, while I still could. It had been almost a year since the last time I went wakeboarding so I wasn’t sure I would be able to do it. But I got up on the first try and managed to stay up the whole way down the coast to the cove and back. Woohoo! I couldn’t wait to do it again the next day but then I remembered that the next day was our last day and we would be on a tour. Rats, the week was going by way too fast!

Another day of relaxing by the main pool. When we got to the pool, the ski boat was running and people were out skiing or wakeboarding. But while I was trying to decide if I wanted to wakeboard, the wind suddenly picked up and water sports shut down again. Darn it! I don’t remember it being so windy on our last trip.

Since I wouldn’t be wakeboarding, Ron and I took another walk down the beach, stopping at Latitudes for a cold drink. Latitudes was built on a pier and encircled by hammocks that hung out over the water. Ron and I tried out the hammocks. They weren’t easy to get in and out of but we found if we scooted on our butts, it wasn’t TOO awkward.  We managed not to fall out, at any rate. :-)

Sandals South Coast - Part 1

Sandals South Coast

Ron and I love Sandals and have been to seven different resorts. This trip was the first time we’ve stayed at a resort for a second time. We vacationed at Sandals South Coast in 2011, although back then it was called Sandals Whitehouse. The resort is made up of three “villages” (Italian, Dutch and French) plus a central piazza which includes the lobby, the main pool and most of the restaurants. The grounds are full of tropical flowers and wandering peacocks. Since our last visit, a section of over-water bungalows was added, as well as a new sushi restaurant and an over-water bar called Latitudes, the perfect spot to catch the sunset. With all the recent updates to the resort, we thought it would be a good time to go back and check out the changes.
