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. The Anegada Express charter boat offers a beautiful full day as it departs from Trellis Bay, East End at 8am & 3.30pm and departs Anegada 9.15am & 5.15pm. (Tue, Thu, Sat & Sun only). Also be sure to explore Cow Wreck Beach and Loblolly if you have the time.
Tommy Gaunt Kitesurfing, Anegada Beach Club
Looking for an exhilarating new hobby or just to improve your skills? Look no further, Tommy and Tim are 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..... The New Horizon ferry leaves from West End which is nice and close for most of the villas that we manage.
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.
Yoga at Nanny Cay & the Moorings
*limited classes post-Irma*
A personal favorite of mine... beachfront sunset sessions several times a week. 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
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 Village Cay Marina, we recommend Kuralu and Aristocat, both have a fun crew and great excursions to Jost Van Dyke, Norman Island or The Baths on different days.
Full Moon Parties
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.

Conveniently located above Pussers Landing at Soper's Hole, Island Surf and Sail 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....
*temporarily re-located while Sopers Hole is under renovation*
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.
For a special treat visit one of these special spots, or even better have them visit you at your villa... The Sugar Mill Spa in nearby Apple Bay, Driftwood Spa at West End or Amara Spa at Nanny Cay or Road Town (plans to re-open at Sopers Hole 2020)
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.
