About BVIs

The British Virgin Islands are a mecca for sailors, with more than 40 exquisite islands dotted throughout the turquoise seas of the Caribbean combined steady trade winds and gentle currents. There are hundreds of white-sand-fringed bays to explore from a luxury villa on the island and you can be sure of a warm welcome when you arrive.

It is possible to stay on Richard Branson's private superyacht 'Necker Belle' which offers a fantastic way to explore the islands.

The BVIs have had a colourful history. Settled thousands of years ago by the Amerindians, and then by the Dutch and the British since the 1600s, the different cultures are still in evidence today in the food, architecture, language and music.

The main island in the British Virgin Islands is Tortola and holds most of the population and commerce. Virgin Gorda is real beauty, favoured by movie stars, millionaires and yachties. Jost Van Dyke is more relaxed and the remote island of Anegada is super-chilled, perfect for just flopping into a hammock and taking it easy when on a luxury villa holiday to the British Virgin Islands.

There are watersports-a-plenty in the BVIs – the sailing, scuba diving and big game fishing are all world class.
