Escape Winter For The BVI

Swap snow for sand this winter and experience the spirit of the ocean from sunup to sundown. Get away to the British Virgin Islands — a secret alcove of the Caribbean offering crystal-clear waters that will swirl around and sweep you into a pleasant state of bliss.

STAY IN LUXURIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS
Renowned for hospitality and authenticity, the BVI offers a full range of lodging accommodations in a variety of venues. Choose from beautiful private villas, spectacular resorts, beachfront suites and secluded B&B cottages, each offering its own range of breathtaking views. If you’re looking to stay somewhere a little more unique, the Anegada Beach Club allows its guests to camp out under Palapa canopy tents, all spacious, well- furnished and unbelievably luxurious.

SET SAIL FOR NEW ISLANDS
With calm, wispy waters, steady winds and over 60 islands, it should come as no surprise that the British Virgin Islands are widely considered the “Sailing Capital of the World.” Visitors from around the globe return year after year to embark on island-hopping adventures over glistening sapphire seas. With each island resting in close proximity of one another, there’s always land in sight, making this an ideal activity for sailors of every skill set. And if you’d rather sit back and enjoy the ride, charter a sailing vessel with a captain and chef. Bareboat or crewed, the choice is yours.

LIVE IT UP AT OCEANFRONT HOT SPOTS
During your stay, don’t forget to take the time to unwind and reconnect at these widely acclaimed seaside bars and restaurants. Take a ferry to Jost Van Dyke and try the original Painkiller cocktail at the Soggy Dollar, alongside their signature conch fritters. Or, take a dingy to the legendary floating bar and restaurant, Willy T’s, known for memorable afternoons in the sun. Dig into the famous beach barbeque served every weekend at Foxy’s Bar & Restaurant. Pair your dinner with a Caribbean cocktail or local craft brew and indulge away, listening to the subtle waves and smooth tunes of various live performers, including Foxy himself on occasion.

EXPLORE NATIONAL PARKS & HIDDEN COVES
In the BVI, there’s a lot more to see than the Caribbean Sea. Inland, you’ll find secret alcoves, tucked-away beaches, lush whispering forests and over 21 national parks. One in particular, The Baths on Virgin Gorda, features a unique formation of granite boulders and tide pools situated on a protected beach. Snap a selfie between the boulders and delve into this geologic oddity.
