The Baths.....quite simply a must! These amazing, huge boulders are breath-taking. Hike through them, climbing steps and wading through shallow water and end up at Devil's Bay. Particularly fun for kids of all ages...you just have to keep up with them! Great photo-ops. Take a ferry from Road Town or get there by charter boat or day-sail. There's a restaurant at the entrance aptly named Top of the Baths!
Simply stunning! Call us crazy but its our getaway when Tortola is too hectic! Measuring 11 miles by 3 and completely flat, the island is surrounded by pristine beaches and snorkeling, and lobster is on every menu.....Anegada Beach Club is THE spot. Glamp it up for a romantic night in a beach front tent cottage or just hang out for the day. Also be sure to explore Cow Wreck Beach and Loblolly.
Tommy Gaunt Kitesurfing, Anegada Beach Club
Looking for an exhilarating new hobby or just to improve your skills? Look no further, Tommy is awesome and the location is a dream.
Jost Van Dyke
Made famous by the likes of Kenny Chesney, Foxy and The Soggy Dollar Bar and it's addictive "Painkiller" rum concoction. There is more to see....the Bubbly Pool, ATV rides, One Love Bar and more.....
If you've always wanted to try surfing, or are a beginner, check out Surf School BVI for some lessons with our friends down at the beautiful Josiah's Bay in East End. Arrange an individual or group lesson at this gorgeous beach break.
A personal favorite of mine... Yoga at Nanny Cay offers beautiful sunrise and sunset sessions on the shaded beachfront deck. And a great deal at $10 walk-in, some mats available. Get your Namaste on!
Be at one with Nature
Explore the beauty and history of the BVI with a peaceful day of guided hiking or snorkeling or stand-up paddle board through the mangroves with Alex at Groundsea
Yes the dolphins are kept in captivity, but their handlers certainly love and take care of them. It is hard not to enjoy the rapture and exhilaration on your child's face as they interact with these most amazing and intelligent of creatures. That's not to say that you won't want to Swim with the Dolphins too!
Day Sail / Sunset Cruise
The BVI's are one of the top sailing destinations in the world - people are enticed by the beauty as well as the accessibility of so many islands so close together, and not to mention the history of swashbuckling pirates and shipwrecks! Take a leisurely daysail or sunset cruise to experience the feeling of freedom, adventure and exclusivity. Based at Soper's Hole Marina, we recommend Kuralu, Mystique or Aristocat. Both are comfortable catamarans with fun crew and great excursions to Jost Van Dyke, Norman Island or The Baths every day of the week.
Full Moon Parties
The Bomba Shack may be famous, or infamous, for its Full Moon Parties, but it is not the only one. For those of you not wishing to try Bombas famous mushroom tea or leave your underwear strung from his bar, head to Trellis Bay, East End. Families can relax together to the chilled vibe on the beach.....watch Moko Jumbies and Aragorn's dancing fireball sculptures, listen to live music and eat the local BBQ.
A drive out to Aragorn's Studio is well worth the effort at any time. It is the best place to find genuine Caribbean crafts, jewelry, pottery and gifts on the island. As it is located past the airport, perhaps combine it with a trip to the beautiful Josiahs Bay beach in the East End.
When you are staying in such luxurious and idyllic surroundings, it's easy to not want to go anywhere! Not a problem......let a chef come to you. We recommend Kenneth Molyneaux, Kayleigh Driver email@example.com, Wendy Ketcham, Kathy Corbett and Donna Arter firstname.lastname@example.org. All know the island well.... they can all prepare any dish you might chose yourself or will suggest their signature dishes. Have them come prepare a special dinner or maybe drop off something for your first night when you might feel like relaxing and not venturing out!
Conveniently located above Pussers Landing at Soper's Hole, this is our favourite stop for a bit of fun and adventure with watertoys.....from kayaks to windsurfers, from SUP boards to surfboards, from kids sand-toys and snorkels to boogie-boards and floats, they have it all! And delivery to your door could not make it easier....
Fancy diving The Wreck of the Rhone where "The Deep" was filmed? Or perhaps one of the other many wrecks or caves.....when you see the fabulous, clear, turquoise waters here, you are certainly going to be tempted! Blue Water Divers are conveniently located at Soper's Hole and Nanny Cay and can accommodate any diving requirement from beginner to advanced. And if diving is not for you, rent a snorkel and mask and you will be mesmerized by the array of stunning sea-life just inches from the surface at many of our easily accessible beaches.
Whether you are looking for a girly mani/pedi get-together with some friends, a relaxing massage with your partner or a calming yoga session, Serenity Spa will cater to these and many more of your needs. And imagine enjoying these treatments in the privacy and comfort of your villa. There is a call-out fee of just $10pp. Or try Journeys Health Spa for their great selection on massages at their location in town or at the villa.
Heather Anderson will listen to your wishes and dreams and make them a reality. Whether it is the 2 of you or 80 of you, she will take the stress out of all the preparation so that you really get to enjoy your big day and have wonderful memories to take home with you.
Available for weddings and other special occasions, Amanda Baker of Virgin Portraits is wonderful. (She took our own beautiful wedding photos.) Or just take the opportunity of being at the beach as an excuse for some informal family shots. Easy-going, relaxed and with a unique eye and talent, Amanda is awesome.
