A five minute stroll from Siren's Song takes
you to the sand bar, known as Mermaids Chair, between The Preserve at Botany
Bay and Little St Thomas. It separates the
Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean.

Once or twice a year during high storms
the Ocean and Sea meet across the sand
bar. Sand, shells and pebbles are constantly
changing on the sand bar depending on
waves, winds and currents.

To the left of the steps leading down to
Mermaids Chair, on the adjacent lot 1-1, there
are kayaks, beach furniture and beach toys.
There is a large sail between the rocks for
shade.
The virtually undisturbed reefs are alive with
different varieties of corals and different
species of tropical fish. The snorkeling is
wonderful.

The Caribbean Sea has "canyons" of corals,
whereas the Atlantic has shallow water and the
corals have formed "gardens".

Marine biologists from UVI have told us that
the Elk Horn coral is the healthiest in Virgin
Island waters.

The reefs comprise both hard and soft corals 
and we treat them with great respect.
