The Ultimate Caribbean Experience - Welcome To BVI!
Be watchful when visiting the British Virgin Islands. Because there is so much to see, you need a keen eye to take it all. Read for more.
Introducing The Islands
Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, and Tortola are the main islands. Tortola, the most populous island in the archipelago and home to the capital city of Road Town, serves as a gateway to the other islands. The larger Virgin Islands resorts can be found here. Except for Anegada, these islands are volcanic in origin, with spectacular scenery of lush peaks dropping into crystal-clear bays and verdant valleys in between. Anegada, a popular fishing destination, is nearly flat. It’s made of coral and limestone, and it has stunning expanses of white-sand beaches to offer visitors.
Although many prefer the crowded spectacle Tortola and Anegada provide, the islands Jost Van Dyke and Virgin Gorda have a unique appeal. They are for astute lovers of nature and yachters seeking a more private island experience in the Caribbean. All the islands in the BVI are perfect for almost any water activity, including diving, snorkeling, sunbathing, bonefishing, sea fishing, reef fishing, and many other popular activities.
Centuries have gone by since the 1843 story that treasure is buried in Norman Island, but the legend remains. Just 10 kilometers away from Tortola, this island is the largest uninhabited island in BVI. This location, known as Bight and Benures Bay, is a cherished snorkeling spot. It is rare to see this area devoid of dinghies, sailboats, and swimmers.
Enjoy the beaches of Norman Island but avoid the terrain east of the island as it is largely impenetrable and undeveloped. This island is also home to treasure caves, which many believe inspired Robert Louis Stevenson’s bestseller. The four caverns are great for snorkeling and diving, with one cave extending 24 meters beneath the island, simulating the circumstances of a night dive.
Santa Monica Rock
Santa Monica Rock, located 1.6 kilometers south of Norman Island, is a great diving location. This site has a maximum depth of 103 feet, making it one of the deepest sites on the island. This rock is excellent for spotting more prominent open-ocean species such as nurse sharks and spotted eagle rays.
The Baths National Park, Virgin Gorda
The Virgin Gorda Baths are a busy anchorage and one of the British Virgin Islands’ most famous landmarks. This distinctive bay is scattered with giant granite boulders, creating sea pools and grottoes perfect for snorkeling and exploring.
North Sound, Virgin Gorda
On Virgin Gorda’s northeastern shore, North Sound is a major water sports hub with well-protected waters and anchorages. Diving, sailing, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, water skiing, glass-bottom boats, and tours to remote beaches are all available.
Gorda Peak National Park, Virgin Gorda
Anyone tired of all the aquatic activity should visit the Gorda Peak National Park, a terrific place for some land-based nature. It’s also one of the best sites for photography in the BVI. Gorda Peak, the island’s highest point, is reached by two well-marked trails. The observation tower at the top gives you a panoramic view of the North Sound, Anegada, and the other British Virgin Islands islets and cays.
Smuggler's Cove Beach, Tortola
Need to get away from Tortola’s crowded resort scene? Smuggler’s Cove, located on Tortola’s westernmost tip, is the ideal hideaway.
This beautiful piece of sun-bleached sand and turquoise water combines with an undulating emerald-green headland, providing a stunning background to your aquatic activities. The bright turquoise seas are ideal for snorkeling, and sea turtles may be seen swimming offshore. There are no stores, resorts, or bathrooms here, although a couple of primitive beach shacks along the shore provide food and drinks.
Smuggler's Cove Beach
If you like movies, you should know that the Hollywood adaptation of The Old Man and the Sea was shot here in 1990. The only way to get to the beach is through a bumpy dirt road, contributing to the isolated vibe and keeping people at bay. If you're searching for low-key activities in Tortola, this beach should be at the top of your list.
White Bay, Jost Van Dyke
White Bay is one of Jost Van Dyke’s most famous and beautiful beaches in the BVI. Steep hills plunge into long sweeps of dazzling white sand, sheltered by a barrier reef.
The reef protects the waters from waves and swells and creates excellent swimming and snorkeling opportunities. A channel at the center provides an entrance for the many boats that anchor in the clear turquoise waters. After a few hours of sun and sea, you can refuel at one of the convivial restaurants along the beach.
Tour the British Virgin Islands With Boasters
There are tons of things to do and places to visit in BVI. These include Cane Garden Bay, Anegada Island, whose coast has sunk over 300 ships, Road Town, Soper Hole, the RMS Rhone Shipwreck site, Peter’s Island, and Sandy Cay. Countless others make it virtually impossible to capture them all in one list. It is possible to visit many of these locations by air, road, or local boat transport.
However, many mind-bending places within the BVI are inaccessible except by private yacht charter. Boatsters provides you with access to a fleet of yachting options and premium service to ensure you enjoy the ultimate Caribbean Experience in largely virgin territory.
