Best Time To Visit: The temperature and rainfall of BVI do not vary much throughout the year, and the area is largely unaffected by hurricanes, meaning any time of year offers very pleasant sailing.
Key Cruising Areas: BVI offers hundreds of options for sailing, as the 50 plus islands are filled with countless coves, reefs, and stunning beaches. Some highlights include Cane Garden Bay where you can visit the sugar cane plantations and rum distillery; and Salt Island where the resident turtles and octopuses will greet you at the famous wreck dive.
Don’t Miss: If you’re seeking adventure sail to Tortola – the largest island. Here you can dive, snorkel and play some tennis, before a hike through the rainforest up Sage Mountain to be rewarded with glimpses of the exotic birdlife, and the stunning view back over Tortola and the nearby islands.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Jost van Dyke is the smallest of the BVI with the biggest personality. Although it only has 25 permanent residents it is a lively destination, filled with great bars and eateries. In the Great Harbour alone you will find five restaurants. Try Corsair’s restaurant for a lobster dinner, then head to Foxy’s Tamarind Beach Bar to get the night started with a rum cocktail.
