8 days in the British Virgin Islands on a superyacht

8 days in the British Virgin Islands on a superyacht

1 of 8 1/8
Day 1

Road Town, Tortola

You might know them only as Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, but there are more than 60 islands and cays that comprise the British Virgin Islands (BVI). This cluster of mostly volcanic islands stretches for 35 miles along the Sir Francis Drake Channel and provides some of the most sought after sailing and cruising grounds in the world.

The BVI are the ideal destination for first time charterers and seasoned sailors alike. The numerous cays and anchorages are protected from Atlantic swells and treated to light tradewinds; the cruising conditions are comfortable and the climate is perfect year round.

Each island has its own distinct flair, but all with an endless supply of snorkelling, white sand beaches and stunning scenery. From experiencing some of the best scuba dive spots in the Caribbean, to lazy beach bar hopping, to recreating a swashbuckling pirate experience, a private cruise or luxury yacht charter in the British Virgin Islands provides it all, and then some.

Day 1: Road Town, Tortola

After landing at Beef Island Airport in Tortola, meet your yacht in Road Town at the Village Cay Marina. Explore the town, perhaps slip into the Oasis Salon & Spa at the marina and finish the day on the sun deck, sipping a Pusser’s Rum cocktail. Alternatively, take the tender round to Cane Garden Bay and take your pick from the bars and restaurants fringing the beach.

For a tasty meal to the accompaniment of live music head for Quito’s Gazebo, where the eponymous owner-cum-local-recording-star sets the mood with his beautiful synthesis of Caribbean, gospel and British rock.
