Catamaran Sailing in the British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands are a world renowned sailing ground particularly popular with those looking for easy-going, relaxed conditions. Laid-back and low-key, the BVI are an absolutely gorgeous place to sail and explore while on holiday.
The 4 larger islands: Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke & Anegada are accompanied by 32 smaller islands all within easy reach. Each island offers something different and a wonderful variety of peaceful anchorages and party locations ensure that every member of your party will be kept happy.
Steady trade winds and line of sight navigation, accompanied by perfect beaches, wonderful wildlife and some of the most welcoming people you’re likely to meet. Taken all together its easy to see why the BVI are a firm favorite with charterers at every level.
Norman Island was the main inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island.” Spanish pirates are rumored to have buried their treasure all around the island in the 18th Century. These days its a great place to visit within the BVI.
The island has a number of world-class beaches. Each of which is connected via hiking trails that run up and down the length of the island.
Visit the Pirates Bight Bar & Restaurant in the evening where happy hour starts every day with a canon shot! Or climb aboard the Willy T, a floating bar & Restaurant that’s been operating here for more than 35 years.
One of the larger Islands in the BVI group, Anegada is nicknamed the “Drowned” Island. Anegada is not volcanic in origin but rather formed of one large dried out reef.
The island is 10 miles long and 2.5 miles wide with no point being higher than 8.5m. The whole island is surrounded by one enormous horse-shoe reef that’s 18 miles long, making it the third largest reef system in the world. The reef provides spectacular snorkeling & diving opportunities allowing you to come face to face with spectacular sea-life. A true paradise on earth!
