I visited Honeymoon Beach on Water Island this last weekend. The place is really laid back. I usually go to a place called Dinghy's Bar & Grill at the far end of the beach. There is another place called Heidi's Honeymoon Grill closer but so far I've not been there.
It's funny why a person chooses one thing over another. I don't think it really matters in this case. Is one better than the other? Probably not. If one place were markedly better than the other I could understand the choice. I don't seem to have any good reason for it though in this case.
There are very, very few cars on the the island though you can rent golf carts there to get around but the island really isn't that big. Less than 500 acres. I guess you might need a golf cart if you were staying there or wanted to explore as much as possible during one day. But who wants to be in that much of a hurry?
The Water Island website mentions that they brake for iguanas, turtles and other little critters. As I was walking back to the ferry this little guy was strolling across the road. I took a few pictures. We helped him to safety.
It was a very nice day. Beach, Jazz, Beer, Water. Hmmm... Who could go wrong.
