British Virgin Islands
8 day itinerary
The gardens of the Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) are a protected paradise that perfectly showcase the natural beauty of this region. Discover the islands’ famed party spots and luxury resorts, or simply drink in these green islands from your yacht.
Welcome to paradise
Start your charter from the luxury marina at Nanny Cay. As you settle in to your home for the week, the yacht will disembark for an anchorage at Peter Island, and enjoy sundowners and canapés before dinner onboard.
Discover the natural world above and below the surface at Peter and Norman Islands. Hike the trails around Peter Island, where if the weather is clear, you can see as far as the U.S. Virgin Islands to the southwest. Enjoy lunch onboard prepared by the chef as your charter yacht cruises to nearby Norman Island, where you can snorkel at The Bight or The Indians.
Jost van Dyke
A legendary island in the BVIs thanks to Foxy’s Bar, drawing sailors and islanders with conch fritters and Painkillers, a cocktail invented in the BVIs with rum, pineapple juice, coconut and orange juice. If your charter is over New Year, prepare for the Caribbean party of a lifetime here. At other times of the year, you’ll find families enjoying the relaxed vibe.
A private nature resort with seven beaches and three reef areas with fabulous snorkelling, Guana Island is an elite holiday escape. Head for Monkey Point on the island’s southwestern tip, home to schools of tarpon and sea turtles as well as parrotfish, angelfish and other colourful Caribbean favourites. Dine at anchor in White Bay, with light breezes and views of swaying palms and sandy beaches.
The Caribbean’s largest barrier coral reef
Take the spectacular cruise to Anegada, 24 km north of Virgin Gorda. The island’s Horseshoe Reef is the Caribbean’s largest barrier coral reef, with glorious snorkelling right off the beach. After a morning exploring the world beneath the waves, break for lunch of fresh lobster at Loblolly Beach.
Virgin Gorda has long enticed travellers with its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages and luxury resorts and villas. Explore its abundant natural beauty via gentle walks along plant-lined trails, take the tender to a stunning beach (try Savannah Bay, Pond Bay or Devil's Bay), and paddleboard to protected national parks. Active charterers can hike to the island’s high point, Gorda Peak, for panoramic views of the surrounding islands.
The Baths on Virgin Gorda is natural phenomenon that impresses even the most seasoned charter guest. Set along the beachfront, it’s a national park filled with massive granite boulders that create shallow seawater pools. A mesmerising location for snorkelling and swimming beneath the dancing light in the caves and grottos, it’s adjacent to a sandy beach shaded by palm trees, perfect for relaxing after a morning of exploring.
Last beach day
Before onward travel from Beef Island's international aiport, spend some time anchored off Trellis Bay, an artistic beach community, and enjoy lunch on the beach or a final lunch onboard before diembarkation.
