A little piece of paradise, Peter Island is the largest of the private islands within the BVI archipelago. And, with only Peter Island Resort on this beautiful drop of land, there are private beaches aplenty where days can be spent without clapping eyes upon another soul. Smattered with snow-white sand, surrounded by crystal clear water and filled with dense and beautiful vegetation, Peter Island really delivers the ultimate in paradisiacal privacy. What’s more, the whole island can be hired out for the perfect family beach vacation.
Found south-west of Tortola Island, Peter Island is secluded yet close enough to other islands for some day time exploring should you want to see all that is on offer in the BVI’s (it is only 20 minutes to 30 of the BVI’s best dive sites). Surrounded by coral, this island is ideal snorkelers. Or, for honeymooners and romantics, visit Honeymoon Beach where no more than two people are allowed at any one time.
Beach lovers, opt for the Beach Front Junior Suites whereby are surrounded by swaying palm trees and can simply step straight out of your room and onto the powder soft sand of Deadman’s Beach. For those traveling with a bigger group, the beautifully positioned villas accommodate different group sizes and set ups. All lavishly appointed, each villa affords a breathtaking view over the picture perfect scenery of the British Virgin Islands. All rooms are finished to a modern and luxurious standard, simply fall asleep listening to the lapping waves and wake up refreshed for another ridiculously amazing day in the BVI’s.
Why we like it
Peter Island Resort may well have invented the phrase ‘going the extra mile’. Not only will the lovely staff sort out your transport to and from their private beaches, Honeymoon Beach and White Bay, they’ll also prepare a picnic for you, so that you can dine in style on one of the most exclusive beaches in the world. If you’re after a thrill, take a helicopter ride over the BVI’s, or if recharging your batteries is in order, Peter Island Resort’s spa dedicates acres of land to its spa, offering specialty Caribbean treatments as well as private or group yoga classes. You’ll practically be able to feel your pre-hol stresses melting away as you make full use of the extensive spa facilities.
