Sailing in the British Virgin Islands




Cruise or Sail in the British Virgin Islands

If ever there was a perfect sailing area, it's the British Virgin Islands! Thanks to the line-of-sight sailing, constant trade winds and warm crystal clear waters, the BVIs are a perennial delight for yachtsmen and landlubbers alike.

The islands are colourful, dotted with picturesque villages and harbors. You'll find literally hundreds of spectacular anchorages and hidden rocky coves to discover and enjoy. The British Virgin Islands culture is colorful and varied, a rich blend of British and West Indian influences. The people are friendly, warm and outgoing. There is really no place like The Virgins the cuisine, the sailing and snorkeling are superb.

Among the most frequently visited of the BVI's handful of inhabited islands are Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada to name a few. All of these are idyllic sites for unwinding, wriggling your toes in the sand, and absorbing the laid back pleasures of sunshine and sapphire seas.

The BVI is the ultimate destination for first time and returning charterers alike with diverse anchorages and dining and drinking choices at every stop. Add to this easy, breezy sailing between islands and you'll fall in love with the BVI.


Tortola

"Land of the Turtledoves" Tortola is the BVI's largest island, with great shopping, beautiful beaches and a diversified cuisine, it's the best place to jump off into your BVI cruise. Excellent shopping can be found here as well and the Footloose base is centrally located in RoadTown a cheerful and welcoming port to be sure. Don't miss out on the Painkiller, a fruity concoction that is the local favorite.

Virgin Gorda

Virgin Gorda, or "Fat Virgin", refers to a protruding mountain noted by Columbus on this second largest of the British Virgin Isles. Only ten miles long and two miles wide, the island is known for its yacht clubs, quiet coves, and safe anchorages for bareboats.

Its most celebrated beach - The Baths - is an intriguing grouping of huge granite rocks framing grottos filled with sea water. While geologists ponder the origins of these mysterious boulders, swimmers and snorkelers refresh themselves in the cool waters of hidden pools and secret passages


Jost Van Dyke

Sun, Rum & Fun, Jost Van Dyke is the party island. The main village is located along the sandy beach of Great Harbour and is a mandatory stop for sailors and a popular day trip for anyone staying on Tortola. This sheltered bay is the location of a number of colourful beach bars and restaurants, including Foxy's Tamarind Bar, famous worldwide.

Others include Rudy's Rendezvous, Ali Baba's, Wendell's World and Corsairs.


Anegada

When you visit Anegada, you will be one of a select few. With few residents, Anegada has but one main village called the Settlement, two hotels and a number of guesthouses, inns and cottages. It's an island for people who desire isolation and miles of pristine beaches. The reefs are spectacular and make for world class snorkeling. The beaches are cathedrals for serious sunning. Anegada is also known for its wildlife, especially its rare iguanas and flocks of pink flamingos.
