Thanks to the line-of-sight sailing, constant trade winds, warm crystal-clear waters and the most exotic bars you can ever imagine the British Virgin Islands are the perfect place to sail!
The BVI’s consist of more than 60 islands and bays, which are part of a Caribbean archipelago known as the British West Indies. The verdant green hills of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and other islands feature dozens of exquisite, white sand beaches and are a contrast to Anegada, which could be described as one big beach!
The islands are colourful with picturesque villages and harbors. You’ll find hundreds of spectacular anchorages and hidden rocky coves to discover and enjoy. The British Virgin Islands culture is rich and varied – a blend of British and West Indian influences. The people are friendly, warm and outgoing. There is really no place like The Virgin Islands – the cuisine, the sailing and snorkeling are superb.
At the risk of using a hackneyed phrase, the British Virgin Islands are truly an “island paradise”. If you close your eyes and imagine a Caribbean sailing vacation… odds are you are envisioning the BVI’s beaches!
The most frequently visited of the BVI’s handful of inhabited islands are Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada. All of these are idyllic sites for unwinding, wriggling your toes in the sand, and absorbing the laid back pleasures of sunshine and sapphire seas.
