PETER ISLAND, British Virgin Islands -- Resort guests who truly
want to get away from it all have lots of choices, including five
beaches and 20 secluded coves.
Two additional retreats are Reading Ridge and Stranded Cove.Reading Ridge is perched above Deadman's Bay Beach with views
of Norman Island, which served as the inspiration for Robert Louis
Stevenson's novel "Treasure Island."
The resort library stocks both classic as well as contemporary
novels.Stranded Cove is accessible only by a resort yacht that
transports guests, along with a gourmet picnic lunch and chilled
wine, for a private play date.
The voluntary castaways radio the resort to come to rescue them
when they want to return to reality.
