I have the book, "Two on an Isle," A Memory of Marina Cay by Robb White published in 1985. Very good. I quite enjoyed it. I'll check out the video.

"A young American couple move to Marina Cat to set up housekeeping on its tiny remote, almost barren island in the depression era 1930's."

Can't remember if The Deep with Jacqueline Bisset and Nick Nolte was filmed using the Wreck of the Rhone off off Salt Island in BVI.
Anybody remember?

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Deep_%281977_film%29

"Filming began in July 1976 with open water diving sequences near Peter Island, the location of the real shipwreck of the RMS Rhone in the British Virgin Islands."

Thanks STXBob.

There was another film with high speed boats filmed in the 80s that used the back side of Lovongo Cay. I remember the location as I was running day sails back then and used that area as one of my snorkeling stops for guests as there was always nice marine life. They chased us off as they didn't want our boat in the aerial scenes. Can't remember name of that one or who was in it for that matter.

And the movie 'Four Seasons' also also included shots in Lovango and Hawksnest,------------ "1492" was filmed in Hawksnest and quite a bit in Santa Maria bay in STT and of course we had "Weekend at Bernie's 2"!!

I thought the movie was based on Robb White's book "OUR VIRGIN ISLAND" from 1953??

Maybe he changed the name and 're-released it in 85 under "Two on an Isle" as that's the name of the book I have by him.

I love that "Treasure Island" is the Baths.
