British Virgin Islands
A striking collection of a myriad of idyllic islands, deserted islets and keys, the British Virgin Islands are one of the Caribbean's most dazzling gems with countless isolated hideaways and pristine beach coves that seduced visitors from the world over and have attracted many celebrities and high-profile millionaires who have set up home here. As the name indicates, the Virgin Islands comprise a virtually untouched paradise with calm crystalline waters that are perfect for sailing and yachting.
Introducing the British Virgin Islands
This stunning island cluster is famous for its calm waters and idyllic scenery, making it ideal for luxury breaks and fantastic sailing holidays.
Not to be confused with the U.S. Virgin Islands, which lie close by, this collection of islands, cays and coral reefs is renowned for its beautiful sailing conditions and celebrity locals. Calm, crystal waters and warm breezes make it a great place to island hop aboard a luxury yacht.
Richard Branson has his own private island here and his neighbours include Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones, so you know you'll be in good company. It's not hard to see why the super-rich want to call this place home. With unequalled views wherever your eye wanders and alluring beaches everywhere you turn, an escape to this coveted island retreat makes the most escapist holiday dreams come true.
The best sailing and snorkelling in the world
With superb waters for diving and plenty of unique coral reefs to explore, the British Virgin Islands are a top destination for scuba diving enthusiasts and snorkelling lovers. Tropical fish gather in the warm shallows meaning you don't have to go far to interact with the exotic natural world.
The grouping of the islands and natural weather conditions also make this one of the world's finest yachting destinations. Take the boat out and explore the secluded coves and deserted beaches that litter these islands. Weigh anchor and clamber onto one of the many uninhabited islets nearby for your own Robinson Crusoe adventure.
Luxury doesn't have to cost the earth
The islands might be a billionaire's playground but a holiday here doesn't have to break the bank. There is a range of options to suit your budget and when the natural environment is this spectacular, nature itself provides all the luxury you need.
If you're in the mood for a bit of pampering, revel in one of the many well-being spas and holistic health centres on offer. Spend the day unwinding on your own private beach and enjoy a romantic meal for two at restaurants with the best views imaginable. It's no wonder this is a popular honeymoon destination.
Try something a little different to give you a break from the beach
Speak to one of our advisers to find out how to make the most of these islands, from trekking on horseback, to exploring the Botanical gardens and dipping down the backstreets of old colonial Road Town to get closer to the island culture.
