Virgin Gorda Yacht Charter

Virgin Gorda is the third largest island in terms of area in the British Virgin Islands and you can see the list of Virgin Gorda yacht charters here.

The beautiful Caribbean Virgin island called Virgin Gorda was discovered by the famous explorer Christopher Columbus in 1493. The island is located on the western side of Aguilla at a distance of about 12 miles from the Tortola Island, which puts it smack bang in the middle of luxury yacht charter territory. The Caribbean is growing in terms of yachting popularity and the Virgin Islands are seeing an increasing number of large crewed luxury yachts and superyachts, many of which are available for charter with CharterWorld. Being the Caribbean this area is popular for both sailing yachts, as there is an abundance of warm Caribbean trade winds, and motor yachts too because of the wonderful beaches, harbours and ports to visit and the closeness of many islands.

The land mass area of Virgin Gorda is 10 square miles and the topography mainly consists of mountains and pristine beaches. People who would like to join a Virgin Gorda charter yacht can easily reach the island by air or a luxury yacht which they can take from either of St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and San Juan. Virgin Gorda is well known in many luxury yachting circles as a picturesque destination offering plenty of shots for the avid photographer. 

The Topography of Virgin Gorda

Virgin Gorda is just about 9 miles long between the farthest points from end to end. The best part of taking the Virgin Gorda yacht charter services is that the island is not spoilt due to extreme commercialization. It is not frequented by very large crowds that throng the other popular destinations such as Bahamas and Barbuda. Virgin Gorda has a pristine coastline with the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. Here you can take part in a lot of marine and land activities. You can also marvel at the beautiful sightings from your luxury yacht. The island boasts of several high profile villas and marinas. The yacht clubs are definitely a place to visit if you are looking forward to book yacht holidays. The island is an important staging point for yacht charters who then continue their onward journey to other islands.

Yacht holidays are fun

With the experience of Virgin Gorda yacht holidays the tourist can also enjoy walking on the beach. Virgin Gorda is known to have some of the finest beaches in the world. You can also visit the heritage settlements and the native villages and interact with the people. If you are the adventurous types then you can take part in several activities such as nature trails and hiking. The Virgin Gorda Harbor is located on the southern side of the island and it is a suitable point from where you can begin your yacht holiday. If you don’t want to stay overnight at the island then you can take the regular ferry services available connecting the island of Tortola and the Charlotte Amalie Island.    

The central and the northern parts of Virgin Gorda have topography that is dominated by hills and peaks that are covered with verdant vegetation. Gorda Peak is quite famous amongst the yacht charter circles and it’s the highest point standing at 366 metres above sea level. The island is known for its pristine beaches and beach resorts located in bays such as Mahoe Bay, Devil’s Bay, Pond Bay and Savannah Bay.
