Our island is a very special place. There are not many parts of the world, especially in the United States, where commercialism has not completely infiltrated. This island is one of those places. It remains barley touched by the masses. In fact, the town of New Shoreham looks much the same as it did in the 1800's. If you cannot go on vacation without a trip to a mall or your favorite franchise restaurant, this isn't the place for you. Known also as Manisses Island or island of the little gods, B.I. is a true oasis from most American's daily life. Now that's a vacation.
