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.
The BVI is also 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 you can hire out the whole island! One of the best ways to see these awe-inspiring islands is by sea, as it's the perfect destination for yachting and island hopping with its calm waters, sheltered bays, steady trade winds and laid-back beach bars.
