I have been living here all of my life and love my beautiful island. When we were younger we would drive around to scout out “park off” places not just to spend time with our significant but also to chat with our friends and share snacks. Even had the police tap on my window one night…didn’t see that one coming!
No, we were just talking and everyone’s clothes were on! Get your mind out of the gutter. Oh the good old days.
But now its getting harder and harder to save the old necking sights because of development.
So, I have made it my personal quest to still find the best “necking spots” on island.
In no particular order:
1.Inlets on Queens Hwy-What Mandarin Hotel??-If we don’t see it its not there. viva la beach access. We will walk through their lobby. Our ancestors fished and dove on those beaches your decades and that is our land. Claim it and fish, swim, dive and NECK until your hearts content.
2.Red Bay- Go as far as you can get to northsound-Ivan may have cut off some access but, nature is your friend swim cross it and enjoy a great time under the Casuarina Trees. You can even watch the sailboats go by.
3.Cayman Kai- if there is a rope baring you cut through and own it. We were here first! How dare they take our Easter picnic spots and call it their own. Bring the entire family. Eat, drink, be merry but leave it clean. At night, its the perfect place to watch the moon dance on the water and listen to the gently tide wash on shore. A nice bottle of wine, a blanket and the moon. Perfect.
4. Seven Mile Beach mmmm, this one is unique, still some nice authenic bushes you can disappear in, oh what the heck you can neck next to the Governors House. At least you will feel well protected.
5. Any where that your car, scooter, bicycle or feet can take you. This is the perfect island to explore and discover the coolest places both on the coast and inland. Nothing better than necking under a 100 year old tree in a grass piece (field) in the interior.
Necking has no boundaries. Go forth and love.
