Discover the sun-soaked sandy beaches, beautiful, protected bays and laid-back atmosphere of the Caribbean this season. A yacht charter to the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) promises the best of a tropical getaway, with all the luxury and ease one expects during a charter. One of the safest and most secure regions of all the Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands consists of more than 60 islands, waiting to be explored including the famous islands of Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, Great Tobago, Tortola and Anegada. Offering a beautiful kaleidoscope of glistening turquoise waters, white-sand beaches, and fascinating seaside villages, several of these islands remain uninhabited to this day. Providing a range of activities, from a vibrant nightlife to a rich culture, pristine nature and more, there is plenty of adventure and relaxation to enjoy in the BVIs.
Watersport activities remain a favourite pastime in the region. Due to the year-round warm temperature, calm currents, gentle trade winds and protected bays, the BVIs are favoured among novice and expert sailors alike and is the ideal spot to hone skills or learn how to sail. The BVIs are also a leading destination for all types of fishing, from reef fishing to bonefishing and offshore fishing. The deep waters are home to a variety of fish, from the much sought after blue marlin to the barracuda and yellow snapper. The sparking shores around the BVIs are a wonder to behold from the surface, but also hide a magnificent and exciting underwater world. From expansive, vivid reefs to some of the world’s finest dive wreck sites, scuba divers and snorkelers will be amazed with the fascinating sites they discover. Off of Salt Island lies the wreck of the Royal Mail packet steamer, the RMS Rhone, the most renowned wreck and finest historical dive sites in all of the Caribbean. Located 80 feet below on the sea bottom, some of the central parts of this vessel are still intact. The coral atoll of the island of Anegada is also the final resting place of several wrecks and sunken ships and offers amazing underwater views for diving and snorkelling, while the waters near Baths house a maze of grottos home to tropical fish and other marine life.
The white sand beaches scattered through the BVIs are among the best in the world, stretching for miles as far as the eye can see. The celebrated Peter Island remains one of the most exclusive and secluded islands in the area, ideal for relaxing in total privacy and peace. Home to not one, but five powder white sand beaches, a world-class resort, and a spa next to an abundance of green hills, it is also a great place for trekking and hiking. Another island favoured for its tropical, exotic beauty is Virgin Gorda. Home to a breathtaking natural park, its shoreline is filled with colourful coves and granite boulders awaiting to be discovered. Outdoor enthusiasts will relish the hike to the island’s peak for unrivalled views of the surrounding, while its beaches are the perfect location to sunbathe, swim and enjoy a BBQ picnic in seclusion.

The place to be for people watching, crowd chasing and meeting other yacht charters, the island offers several exciting bars and nightclubs that stay open into the early hours of the morning.
