Your first stop will be the 59ft floating palace that you can call home for four nights. With the perfect unity of power and elegance, set sail as captain of this awesome vessel or perhaps recline with a glass of champagne and leave the commandeering to a professional. In any case your meals will be taken care of, thanks to the on-board chef. With 50 separate islands to explore this is the best way to experience the BVI, as you peacefully skim across the azure waters. Starting off in Tortola, be sure to check out the secluded Josiah’s bay, a hot-spot for surfers and sunbathers like. Slightly off the beaten track this golden alcove offers the perfect swell for surfers of all levels. Prefer to keep those feet dry? Sip on a delicious cocktail at one of the vintage beach bars dotted along the sands and leave the surfers to it.
Dive the Wrecks
Peter Island, White Bay, home to one of our favorite island resorts has some amazing opportunities to explore the luscious landscapes, as well as snorkelling and diving off its secluded beaches, but the holy grail of diving spots has to be the Wreck of Rhone off Salt Island. This fantastical wreck is like something out of a film set, it will take your breath away (well, not literally, you’ll have an oxygen tank of course). Cavort in the clear waters accompanied by some exquisite marine life such as leatherback turtles and the unusual parrot fish. After lunch sail up to Long bar, Virgin Gorda, to swap sea-faring tales with the locals over a scrumptious rum punch.Read more
Had enough of paradise yet? No, we thought not. Well our next stop is the 74 acre oasis of Necker Island. Purchased by Richard Branson in 1978 this tropical bolthole offers a getaway just as unique as you are. However you envisage island life, lounging in a hammock, exotic cocktail in hand or getting the blood pumping by wind-surfing or power boating, you can do it in sun-kissed style at this luxury hideaway for a week of pure opulence.
Spend your morning reclining on the beach; relax with that ultimate vacation read in the shade of a palm tree or check out the colorful native wild life. There are over 200 flamingos on the island alone. After a relaxing morning why not dive the depths in Necker Island’s underwater ‘aircraft’, the Necker Nymph. In this bespoke vessel a specially trained pilot will take you 30 meters below the surface for some extraordinary views of the kaleidoscopic coral reefs and marine life around the BVI.
A trip to the Leha Leha spa is an absolute must on Necker Island. Why, you ask? Well it’s in the very name; Leha Leha in Balinese means peace, relaxation and day dreaming. Slip into a meditative state with their specialized Bamboo Massage or enjoy a ‘Duos in Paradise’ massage, where you and your partner are transported into a blissful state of relaxation side by side. Go on, you deserve it.
