A romantic cluster of some 60 secluded and breathtakingly beautiful islands and cays, the Virgin Islands offer an idyllic escape for those seeking barefoot luxury.
Often promoted as ‘nature’s little secret’, there’s a real sense of adventure and discovery about the Virgin Islands. Still largely undeveloped, you can literally find yourself alone on a stunning stretch of beach, or can explore uninhabited islands and hidden coves. In fact, ‘island-hopping’ is one of the great pleasures of any holiday in these magical islands. Famous for the fabulous sailing, which is amongst the best in the world, the BVI are renowned for their watersports, including superb scuba diving amongst beautiful, protected reefs. But this is also where you come just to relax, unwind and let the luxurious resorts take care of your every need.
Out and About
Charter a yacht
Whether you’re a first time sailor or an experienced captain, you’ll enjoy the consistent winds, clear blue water and the beautiful blue skies of the BVI. Take a lazy day sail to a nearby beach, or a longer cruise with a professional crew. If you’d prefer to spend your entire BVI holiday on the water, we have access to numerous yachts in all shapes and sizes and will be delighted to organise this for you.
Take a bath
‘The Baths’ on Virgin Gorda is a dramatic rock formation and a former 19th Century copper mine. The beauty of the Baths is visible both above the water, where granite boulders form sheltered sea pools on the sandy beach, and below, where shoals of vibrant tropical fish dart around the coral ledges. Visiting the Baths really is a ‘must do’ when holidaying in this part of the Caribbean.
Feed a lizard
If you’d rather stay on terra firma, the BVI offer abundant nature and interesting wildlife on dry land too. The beautiful green iguanas roam freely around the resorts, and if you’re staying at Biras Creek, a favourite pastime is to feed them with red hibiscus flowers. They’re so tame, they’ll take the petals right from your hand.
Food and Drink
For a collection of small islands, there are a surprising number of great restaurants here. Dinner at The Sugar Mill is exceptional, especially in the romantic setting of a 370 year old sugar mill. Foxy’s Bar on Jost Van Dyke has become something of a legend, whilst the resorts offer a range of dining options, from cordon bleu cuisine to beach barbecues. If you’re looking for something a little more laid back, try The Fat Virgin Café on Virgin Gorda, just a short walk from Biras Creek - the burgers here are fabulous. Another special place we recommend (especially for a lazy lunch) is Saba Rock, accessible by boat from Virgin Gorda.
The most convenient route is via Antigua with a connecting LIAT flight to Beef Island Airport, Tortola, or a shared or private charter. The connecting flight time to Tortola is approximately 1 hour.

"They offer the purest essence of yo-ho-ho Treasure Island Caribbean: in just half a day's sailing you can drop anchor and swim to white-sand beaches free from sunloungers."
