n Anegada, a few feet beyond Kelwyn “Kelly” Faulker Lindsay’s boat, loaded with five American guests, rises a series of pink hills like jagged sand dunes, towering a dozen feet above their heads and sloping down to the sea. These piles of empty shells — rough and grainy on the outside, shiny and smooth on the inside — are a landmark that appeared on VI navigational charts as far back as the 1600s. But up until a few years ago, when Mr. Faulkner Lindsay launched Kelly’s Land and Sea Tours, they were — like most of the east side of the island, far from the beach bars of Cow Wreck and Loblolly Bay — inaccessible to most visitors.
