Over on Water Island in the USVI they show movies on the beach every Monday night during the cruising season. Heidi’s Honeymoon Grill puts this on by stringing a giant screen between two palm trees and putting out plastic chairs.
Let me tell you this is the way to see a movie. A couple months ago I saw Ocean’s 8 and it was perfect. I went with several of my cruising/charter crew friends and we got there before sunset in order to eat a Heidi’s, which is not much more than an open air shack on the beach, but boy do they make a great hot sandwich. During dinner you might get to see one of the best sunsets ever right from the beach. Check out the “photo of the day” to see the view I had.
Once the sun dips below the horizon it is time to start the show. Everyone grabs a chair, brings their own, or camps out in the sand, but make sure you get your bag of popcorn before the show starts. It is absolutely fantastic as the breeze blows and nature is all around you…..of course the entire time in the back of your mind is a prayer that it does not rain. Haha.
