Here’s why the British Virgin Islands should be your first choice destination for a winter getaway. Calm waters, year-round temperatures at 80-90 degrees, and a clear line of sight between the stretch of 60 beautiful islands make the BVI a perfect destination for sea and sand lovers.
Imagine sailing the BVI, dropping anchor at Jost Van Dyke, and swimming up to a beachside bar to drink the famous Painkiller cocktail. Dock at Virgin Gorda to check out The Baths, a popular destination for snorkeling and one of the BVI’s most fascinating natural treasures. Or take advantage of more than 100 dive sites and swim alongside unique sea life, shipwrecks, and colorful coral reefs. Beachside is a seemingly endless offering of aquatic activities, including beginner-to-expert diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and more.
There are also plenty of great activities beyond the BVI’s sandy coastlines. Enjoy a warm breeze and jaw-dropping views on a canopy tour through treetops overlooking Road Town, Tortola, or explore the BVI’s 21 National Parks, intriguing museums and many historical sites including the 400-year-old Callwood Rum Distillery, perfect for history buffs and rum fans alike. And just in time for holiday travelers, Tortola’s new Tortola Pier Park opens on December 22. The enhanced cruise pier and shopping facility will offer a mix of retail shops filled with local art, fashions and goods, restaurants serving flavorful dishes like lobster and conch, and live entertainment venues.
Home to the most private island resorts in the Caribbean, a trip to the BVI is the experience of a true island escape. Scattered throughout the islands are luxury resort hideaways, beautiful beachfront villas, contemporary hotels and charming cottages. And with its reputation as a sailor’s paradise, you may even decide to sleep onboard a chartered yacht during your stay.
Whether daydreams have you longing for a relaxing spa retreat or a thrill-seeking escape, there’s a tailor-made vacation waiting just for you. Upcoming winter events include the highly anticipated Foxy’s Old Year’s Night party (December 31), a world-renowned new years celebration on the coast of Jost Van Dyke.
