A nautical paradise dotted with islands of verdant mountainous terrain, extensive coral reefs, and famous shipwrecks sum up the charm of the British Virgin Islands. With a myriad of pursuits on offer, this is no fly and flop Caribbean destination. This seven night island escapade is where you can truly immerse yourself in the Caribbean way of life, the way its meant to be experienced; on the water. On this trip look forward to…
Start your trip on the island of Virgin Gorda staying at Biras Creek a retreat nestled in the sleepy bay of North Sound that, for us, encapsulates laid back luxury to a tee. With a Boston Whaler (that’s a small boat to you and me) moored at the water’s edge, you can take to the seas whenever you feel the need to explore. Once you’ve had your fill of the tranquil ocean you can spend a lazy afternoon back at the hotel getting stuck into a good book on your private patio with a cocktail in hand.

For diving enthusiasts the area of North Sound is home to an underwater mecca; Eustatia Reef. Grab your snorkel and get paddling as you awe at the amazing array of colorful corals and fishes that swim by.Above the water we think the best way to get under the skin of a destination is by getting acquainted with the local fare, and the BVI boasts some great eating holes.
For a unique and authentic taste of the islands head over to our favorite spot to indulge in some hearty grub The Fat Virgin Café, which can only be reached by water. The restaurant owner Ester’s innovative approach to cooking merges the traditional methods of Caribbean preparation with the freshest local ingredients, we’re hooked on the savory pan-fried red snapper, and Esther’s scrumptious home cooked fries all washed down a freshly squeezed pineapple and coconut juice. Once fed and watered you can peruse the Fat Virgins boutique picking up a few local treasures to carry home.Read more
To work off your epic meal from the day before it’s time to get out and marvel at these islands wondrous natural assets. With your Boston Whaler as your steed chug south of your hotel and get ready to explore the baths. Walk along the powdery sands awing at the landmarks of volcanic activity that loom on the shoreline. Tiptoe across the beach hiding in the seawater grottoes and caves.
To explore the unique flora and fauna of these isles take a hike through the lush forest traversing the stone steps until you reach the observation tower at peak of the trail. Your reward: endless views of the islands scattered across the blue abyss. For the ultimate end to your stay at Biras Creek we’ll whisk you off on a sunset boat ride around Necker Island for unmatchable views of the blood orange sky setting along the horizon
From Biras Creek it’s a short hop across the island of Virgin Gorda to for a slice of the luxury beach life at Little Dix Bay. For the next four nights lounge on the sands or get out and explore the bay. For a little indulgence the award winning spa is where you can be pampered to your heart’s content. For a unique insight into Caribbean culture head to Spanish Town. Just a 15-minute stroll from the resort, the town is home to the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour. Take some time to wander the streets soaking up the town’s relaxed vibes.

From Little Dix Bay we can organize you to be whisked up, up and away on an exhilarating helicopter ride over the islands. Swooping over the lush peaks fringed with pure white sands is a scene to be believed, and your destination; the coral fringed island of Anegada. Visually a world away from the other islands, Anegeda is more like an atoll of the Maldives laid delicately on the water. The coral surrounding the island offers some of the best diving around, and the miles of uninterrupted white sand beaches are some of the best we’ve ever laid eyes on. After all that diving and exploring a feast of local, fresh-from-the-sea Anegada lobster awaits. And to go out with a bang a little stint on your own private island Guana Island is just what the doctor ordered. The perfect end to the perfect trip.
