The British Virgin Islands, usually just called BVI, are a paradise for sailors. There are over 60 islands and they are located about 125 kilometers east of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean. The main islands are Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost van Dyke, Peter Island, Norman Island and Anegada, but there are many more. In the US Virgins, you can visit St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas.
The British Virgin Islands are very popular because you will experience that there is no rush and hurry – neither on the islands, as the people don´t know words for, nor at sea, because the wind conditions are stable and perfect weather all over the year. The distance between the islands are short, the water is crystal clear and the landscape just Caribbean. Enjoy the fine white beaches with many opportunities for sailing, diving and snorkeling.
The largest island in the BVI is Tortola with several marinas. The capital city is Road Town. A special attraction is the Botanical Garden, with an abundance of native and exotic tropical plants. Sailing enthusiasts, who like to go shopping in the Caribbean, can do this in Road Town. Don´t forget the rum, which still made here traditionally since over 200 years.
The famous beach The Baths is very interesting. Located on the third largest island of Virgin Gorda, this beach is called so because of its gigantic granite boulders – looking like naturally shaped sculptures – and protruding from the water. It seems as if they would roll in the direction of the sea. Between these rocks there are many small pools and caves. Who is an amateur sailor and diver at the same time, should dive down to the coral caves.
Enjoy Beach Bars like Foxy’s or Soggy Dollar Bar, world famous Pusser’s Rum and restaurant, try the traditional Painkiller cocktail, taste lobster in Anegada…have fun. A cruise and yacht charter around the British Virgin Islands you won´t forget soon. The memories of the vastness of the clear blue water will obtain you again and again.
