My family and I just got back from a great stay at FBV. It was our first time and our first trip to the Out Islands. We will be back! The beach is probably the most beautiful one I have been to, ever. Calm, clear blue water. Great kayaking trips up the creek chasing turtles and baby nurse sharks or paddling out to snorkeling around small islands in the bay (with a swim through cave). Gorgeous sunsets while meeting new friends around the well stocked, self-serve bar. Great buffet dinners right on the water and more relaxing around the evening beach fire.
The kids (13 & 6) had a blast. The beach is great for swimming and exploring. The whole area is very safe. The atmosphere is like a big family reunion, but there are no chores for you to do! If you go, try to book some 1/2 day excursions before you arrive. We were able to do everything we wanted but things seemed to fall in place at the last minute. We would have worried less if the excursions were setup in advance. You will want at least 1/2 day at FBV everyday, so nothing to long off site. We spent several days just lounging around at FBV and those days were so nice.
Everything is pricey on the island, FBV included. You can save some decent money by making your own breakfast and lunch at your house. Just make a quick trip to the local store when you first arrive and stock up. Dinner at the Clubhouse really can't be beat though.
