TORTOLA is the largest of the BVI chain. Here you can swim and stroll the powdery white-sand beaches, visit ancient ruins or simply enjoy the amazing local cuisine; either in idillic comfort of your charter yacht or in one of the local restaurants.

NORMAN ISLAND or TREASURE ISLAND is a great place to snorkel at the caves and be amazed by the amount of fish swimming in the crystal clear waters. Here you could also hike to the top of Spy Glass Hill, renowned as the lookout point for the pirates. Be sure to ask your captain about the Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe treasure!

Excellent for water sports and relaxing on the beach are the secluded bays of the PETER ISLAND, such as the White Bay and Spring Bay. The island is famous for its romantic atmosphere and also has its own five-star resort with a spa and restaurants.

One of the most famous dive site around the globe can be found off the SALT ISLAND. The Wreck of The Rhone is located just off the island, where you can explore the remain of the R.M.S Rhone (Royal Mail Streamer) that sank in 1867 in a hurricane.

Cow Wreck Beach and Loblolly Bay are two highly recommended places for snorkelling, where you might come across see turtles and other fascinating sea creatures hiding behind the reef.

JOST VAN DYKE is renowned for its easy-going, casual lifestyle, protected anchorages, fine beaches with beachfront restaurants and bars. With heavenly tropical isles, like Green Cay and Sandy Spit, a main street that is a beach, the Stress Free Bar, this is the island that truly defines ‘laid back’! The small uninhabited gem of the Caribbean, SANDY SPIT is an absolute must see on any BVI yacht vacation. It is so peaceful, you may even find that you have the whole of the island to yourself!

CANEGARDEN BAY is a great place to visit for some night entertainment and music. It offers several beach bars and lively restaurants, however it is also ideal for lazing the day away sipping on a cocktail with your toes in the powdery white sand.
