There are certain places in the world that you simply have to see to believe. If you love the balmy tropics (and who doesn’t?) then the BVIs definitely won’t disappoint. We’re confident recommending this beautiful corner of the world to both novice and experienced sailors- it simply has it all. This month Fodor’s even mentions the islands in their newsletter of places to see before it’s too late.
One of the things that make the BVIs particularly suited to sailing is that there’s a definite ‘yachtie’ culture in the area. It’s always great to be around like-minded people, and although some of us may dream of navigating uncharted waters without another boat in sight, sometimes it can be very comforting to travel the road more travelled with all amenities within easy reach.
Bareboating in the region offers the picturesque Caribbean vistas that make for the perfect photo opportunity at every turn. If you’re considering the Caribbean, it’s easy to see why the BVIs are so popular- here you’ll find azure waters, white sands and emerald mountains rising up out of the sea. It also doesn’t hurt that the people of islands like Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada are warm and welcoming.
Perhaps best of all, you can choose between a social island-hopping experience or really sail away from it all, if privacy is high on your list of priorities. Make friends with other sailors, go to beach parties and high-traffic attractions or simply slip away from the crowd and escape to lesser known islands for true relaxation. There are over 50 other smaller islands and cays to explore- call us and we’ll be happy to give you our best recommendations.
