What better way to enjoy the splendour of the Caribbean Sea and the British Virgin Islands than on a BVI yacht charter?
Whether you want to cruise around the four main islands, or explore the many smaller ones, many accessible only by boat, a yacht rental in BVI offers many options to ensure a most memorable luxury yacht charter experience. Of course, aboard your luxury yacht, not only will you get to enjoy the very best of the BVIs, from its exquisite sun-drenched tropical beaches, vibrant Caribbean culture, and verdant marine life, but also five-star service, thanks to your yacht’s dedicated crew.
Once you’ve decided on your BVI yacht charter, it’s time to think about your itinerary, as there’s a long, colourful, and exciting list of things to do and places to see. Here are some of the top places to visit in the BVIs for a holiday of a lifetime.
Top of the list for most visitors is this collection of massive granite boulders on the north shore of Virgin Gorda, in a national park covering 7 acres. These awe-inspiring formations, including some that are 40 feet in diameter, overlook white sand beaches and azure water. Climb the ladders up the boulders, or for the very adventurous, use the rope handrails along the steps that guide you to Devil’s Bay, a perfect spot for swimming and snorkelling. Be sure to include this geological wonder while enjoying your BVI yacht charter.
Norman Island is situated at the southern tip of the BVI archipelago. This storied island is said to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island,” and is a must-visit destination during a BVI yacht charter. There are no pirates around these days, but there’s plenty of ”treasure” to explore, beginning with snorkelling in the three caves at the base of the cliffs. It’s also a divers’ paradise, with exquisite reefs, hard and soft corals, and a host of exotic marine life. The island’s surrounding crystal clear waters and stunning marine life make it an ideal destination to make use of your yacht’s tenders and toys. Be sure to steer your yacht rental in BVI to this fabled island.
White Bay (Jost Van Dyke)
Known as one of the best beaches, with the softest sand, White Bay is a popular spot for sailors and sunbathers, and for those who enjoy a convivial atmosphere. Among the favourite watering holes are the Soggy Dollar (order the “painkiller” cocktail) and Foxy’s, where the namesake owner has been welcoming visitors for 50 years. When you’re ready to party, steer your BVI yacht charter to White Bay, the smallest of the four main islands.
Cane Garden Bay
This hot spot on Tortola, the largest of the islands, features fine dining, local artisans’ shops, and a rum distillery. Quito’s Gazebo offers “beach chic dining”, reggae music, and stunning sunset views on the waterfront. Pusser’s at Myett’s Garden Inn features fresh Caribbean cuisine in a tropical garden setting. Take time to sample the rum at the Callwood Distillery, where the original boiler is still in use, and the rum is stored in the original casks. The old stone building is on a sugarcane plantation with a rum-making history of 400 years. Of course, there’s always the lure of the gorgeous beachfront for strolling and stargazing.
The best way to enjoy all of these sites, and more that BVI offers, is aboard a luxury crewed yacht charter. Cruise the Caribbean in style while experiencing the best of this stunning destination.
