Easy island hops, consistent trade winds, line-of-sight navigation and numerous safe anchorages make for world-class sailing in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). Stretching northeast of their American cousins, the BVI encompasses more than 60 islands and islets with the principal islands being Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda and Anegada.
Though there is plenty to do and see on the larger island, many of the smaller islands — which are often uninhabited — are perfect for snorkeling excursions and overnight anchorages.
- Hop in your dinghy and head over to The Caves on Norman Island (believed to be where pirates stashed treasure), phenomenal scuba diving can be found in crystal-clear waters, at The Indians.
- Visit the famous floating bar and restaurant known as the Willy T, named after William Thornton, located in The Bight on Norman Island.
- Snorkel or dive the wreck of the R.M.S. Rhone, which sank off Salt Island’s eastern point in 1867.
- Explore Devil’s Bay and The Baths with their huge granite boulder caves and formations.
- Laze on Anegada’s exquisite white sand beaches — including Loblolly and Cow Wreck Bay. Or snorkel Anegada’s Horseshoe Reef — the third largest continuous coral reef in the eastern Caribbean.
- Experience happy hour Caribbean-style at Foxy’s or the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke.
Clear turquoise waters ringed with world-class beaches, picturesque anchorages and abundant mooring balls make the BVI an ideal spot for the perfect sailing holiday.
