British Virgin Islands

This romantic cluster of some 60 islands and cays attracts a high number of repeat visitors, and with exclusivity and luxury as standard, it’s easy to see why people come back time after time. Luxurious resorts, spellbinding spas, pristine white sands and ultramarine waters only confirm the allure. Cool off with a cocktail - perhaps the infamous Painkiller - and then, with suitcases unpacked and beachwear on, you can relax on a hammock strung between two palm trees. Take to the water and you’ll be treated to some of the best sailing in the world, and the region’s protected coral reefs also make for some superb snorkelling and diving.

Last but not least, the BVI is home to indisputably the most famous privately owned island in the world - Richard Branson’s Necker Island. At certain times throughout the year rooms can be booked individually, or if you really want to push the boat out, you can hire out the whole island!

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.

The Baths

‘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.

What to try... A Painkiller

The legendary Soggy Dollar Bar, on the tiny island of Jost Van Dyke, is where the BVI's infamous Painkiller cocktail (a concoction of dark rum, coconut cream, pineapple and orange juice) was first created. Anchored just off the beach, you'll have to swim to the bar - but go easy on the Painkillers as you'll also have to swim back to shore!
