A certain British entrepreneur may have put the British Virgin Islands on the luxury travel map, but sailors know the archipelago’s attractions extend far beyond Necker Island. These charming islands are home to reef-lined beaches, clear waters and the finest cruising grounds in the Caribbean. This itinerary balances adrenalin-fuelled activities with picturesque anchorages and the odd rum cocktail thrown in for good measure.
Day 1: White Bay
Meet Octopussy in a secluded anchorage in White Bay, a white sand beach on the 3.4 square kilometre private Guana Island. There are several great snorkelling options nearby in crystal clear water – with small colourful coral patches ideal for beginners.
