Yacht Charter DestinationBritish Virgin Islands (BVI)Experience
For anyone who enjoys fishing, diving, and soaking-up-the-sun on some of the nicest beaches in the world, then BVI is a dream come true. The largest island is Tortola, which is famed for its shockingly white sand beaches, lush green foliage, and laid-back vibe. It also happens to be home to some of the finest rum distilleries on the planet.
There’s a reason that icons like Richard Branson, Larry Page (Google), and Morgan Freeman own homes in BVI – it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. Plus, the cuisine – especially the seafood, like lobster, fish chowder, snapper, and conch stew – is out-of-this-world excellent!
THE BATHS NATIONAL PARK VIRGIN GORDA
The Virgin Gorda Baths are one of BVI’s most famous landmarks. This distinctive-looking bay is remarkable for it’s massive granite boulders, which create a series of sea pools and grottoes that are ideal for snorkeling. Put this one on the “must visit” list.
SMUGGLER'S COVE BEACH, TORTOLA
Smuggler’s cove is a totally undeveloped part of Tortola that offers terrific snorkeling and an ideal spot for a beach picnic. The sea turtles swimming just offshore add to the allure of this exceptional BVI spot.
ROAD TOWN, TORTOLA
The capital of the British Virgin Islands, Road Town features cool shops, award-winning eateries, not to mention historic forts and sugar mills. While you’re in town, be sure to check out Government House, J.R. O’Neal Botanic Gardens, and Dolphin Discovery Tortola.
DIVING THE RMS RHONE SHIPWRECK
Located in Rhone National Marine Park, BVI’s only national marine park, the RMS Rhone Shipwreck is one of the best dive sites in the Caribbean. Say hello to the snappers, grunts, and parrotfish that call the wreck home!
SANDY CAY, LITTLE JOST VAN DYKE
Thanks to the fringing reefs located on both the north and south ends of Little Jost Van Dyke (known located as “all-beach island”), Sandy Cay is one of the BVI’s best spots for snorkeling & kayaking. Be sure to walk some of the short hiking trails just off the beach. You’ll be glad you did!
For more than two centuries, Norman Island, the largest uninhabited island in BVI, has been the subject of rumors that it’s home to buried treasure. Totally believable. There are dozens of prime locations that would be suitable to hiding gold & silver – like the series of caves for which the island is famous. One of them extends 24 meters under the island. Are these caves the perfect spots for snorkeling & diving? Quite possibly.
