Once attracting pirates and pioneers to its calm waters and jungle interiors, the British Virgin Islands now appeal to visitors looking for a secluded island escape. They’re still a haven for sailors, who are welcomed into pretty marinas, and you could consider chartering a private boat as part of your trip to make the most of the gentle trade winds.
In planning your itinerary for the British Virgin Islands, our Caribbean specialists can recommend discoveries such as private islands, secluded coves and protected bays dotted with the occasional swaying hammock or beach bar. We've toured the islands and use this first-hand knowledge to create each trip.
