The British Virgin Islands

Last updated: 1 April 2018
The British Virgin Islands is paradise for yachtsman as constant trade winds blow over this group of sixty Caribbean islands. Here visitors charter yachts for week-long journeys through some of the prettiest landscapes in the Caribbean. Rugged volcanic islands and flat coral atolls float in warm, sapphire waters.

Here divers swim with moray eels, stingrays and barracuda amongst the colorful coral gardens around the islands. The beaches are dressed in snow white sands and windsurfs and kitesurfs sail across the surface.

In September 2017 Hurricane Irma struck with a force that stripped the trees of bark and leaves and left eighty-five percent of the buildings in ruins. Already intrepid business owners have started to pick up the pieces and many of the restaurants and hotels have re-opened, and chartered yachts once again sail from island to island.
