I prefer Spanish Cay or Green Turtle, we don't usually stop at west end on the way over. Last time we did stop there on the way back and it made for a nice trip home to st lucie. Spanish is supoer easy, they have a free dock
you pull up to, the lady will come down and get you checked in and you can head
our wherever you chose.
Green Turtle is pretty good too, but the lady is sometimes hard to catch, we had to wait two days one time (they arent all that "strict")
We took the route
camaraderie is suggesting last time (although we stayed two nights at great sale).
