Everywhere you go British Virgin Islandsin the British Virgin Islands, the true Caribbean awaits you for an amazing sailing escape among sun, sea and nature. It is an ocean of great adventure, a breathtaking scenery and crystal clear waters. Whether you're throwing out your job sail and crisscrossing the Sir Francis Drake Channel, descending the depths to explore a century-old shipwreck, hooking into a world-class marlin or simply soaking in the radiant sun and wide skies, the BVI will reveal its secrets to you one at a time. From the white sand beaches and welcoming turquoise waters to the friendly, warm-hearted people throughout our 60 idyllic islands - the British Virgin Islands is one of the world's best-kept secrets. The BVI is truly the center of the sailing world. With consistent winds, clear blue water, sunshine every day and islands close enough to navigate by sight, the BVI is a sailorís paradise.

British Virgin Islands From the main capital island of Tortola, sailors during their sailing vacation have incredible variety in a cruising area that is about 32 miles long and 15 miles wide. Some have called the British Virgin Islands one of the worldís top five dive sailing destinations. Others have named it the top shipwreck diving spot on the planet. With an endless collection of wrecks and rocks to explore, youíll quickly find out why the BVI is one of the best kept secrets in the diving community. The British Virgin Islands have some of the world's best dive sites. Dive shops offer expert instruction for beginners and completion of your certification program for more experienced divers. With access to a wide range of dive sites, it's easy to accommodate divers of all skill levels in your group. The Wreck of the Rhone is the first and only Marine National Park in The British Virgin Islands. British Virgin Islands It is the most celebrated dive site in the BVI, and a major recreational attraction. The park includes examples of fringing reef habitat and sea grass beds. The wreck is that of a Royal Mail Steamer which sunk during the hurricane of 1867 with 125 persons on board. At 310 feet long and 40 feet wide, the wreck of the Royal Mail Steamer lies in two main parts in waters between 30 and 90 feet deep. Much of it is still intact and visible, including decking, parts of the rigging, the steam engine, and propeller. The Marine Park stretches from Lee Bay on Salt Island westward to include Dead Chest Island. The ship's anchor broke away outside Great Harbour, Peter Island, and this site forms the second portion of the park. The park is used by several commercial dive operators daily. Other dive sites in the park include Rhone Reef, Blonde Rock, and Painted Walls. Anchoring is strictly prohibited in the area in and around the Rhone. The National Parks Trust has installed mooring buoys for use by all commercial, charter and private vessels. If moorings are unavailable around the Rhone, vessels are required to use the Salt Island Settlement or Peter Island anchorages.


Anegada
Anegada Anegadaisland is a must of the Caribbean sailing holidays. Flat, empty, and so low-lying that early explorers feared it would slip beneath the sea, Anegada and its accompanying charms are singular among the Virgin Islands. Its attractions are simple: fresh seafood, solitude, and miles of empty, white beaches. Adventurers can complement the quiet times with expeditions through the islandís wild interior, a land of epiphytes, wild orchids, and rare iguanas. Wherever you go, there is little chance of meeting a crowd. More likely, you wonít see anyone at all. If you're looking for untold tropical delight, miles of white sandy beaches and crystal clear turquoise water, then come to the exceptional island of Anegada - where relaxation is the name of the game. Situated to situated just 30 are miles to the east of Tortola - the big attraction in the BVI - Anegada is a veritable gem amidst the deep blue waters of the Caribbean. One of the most enjoyable aspects of this island is the fact that it is home to an amazing variety of outdoor attractions, sports and fun things to do.

Jost Van Dike
Jost Van Dyke Jost Van DikeBVI is one of the most beautiful of the Virgin Islands, a true "virgin" island where you can get lost in romance. If serenity, relaxation, white sand and spectacular views are your idea of paradise, you've found it!.Jost Van Dyke is an island of coral sand, and its beaches are the loveliest in the Caribbean. And they're so deserted, chances are you won't see another set of footsteps on the sand. But you can always find a shady spot at a beach side bar to sit and sip a cool drink. Jost Van dike is definitely a not to be missed destination during your caribbean sailing charter in the British Vergin Islands.

Tortola
On the ivory sand Tortolaof Josiah's Bay, the Caribbean Sea surges and retreats to the calypso rhythm, the rolling waves betraying a therapeutic silence. Like a colossal volcanic periscope, the island of Tortola emerges from the incandescent sea, its forested peaks gazing upon the primitive archipelago that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island". Settled by the Spanish after Columbus' second expedition of 1493, the Virgin Islands soon became a battleground for pirates of the Renaissance - the small scattered islands

Tortolaproving ideal for the concealment of plundered treasures. Today the BVI has become an exploratory playground for the adventurer or holiday-maker seeking respite from the commercialism of the Carib's 'down islands'. With its abundance of marinas and watersports facilities, the BVI is well-equipped to support the growing interest in boating vacations. Like Sir Francis Drake and the infamous Blackbeard before them, today's visitors set sail from Tortola's Road Town in search of the island treasures that locals call 'Nature's Little Secrets'. While Tortola is the industrial and communications hub of the BVI, it is much more than a convenient launching point.

Virgin Gorda
Virgin Gorda Virgin Gordais home to some of the most stunning beaches in the Caribbean. It also maintains the perfect balance between all the comforts of home whilst maintaining an uncommercialised environment for visitors to soak up real Caribbean flavour looking for a dreamlike sailing Caribbean escape. The island features diverse attractions from the fantastic sailing, kayaking and watersports available at Leverick Bay in the North Sound to the natural beauty and wonder of 'The Baths'. The Baths are a must-see - a unique, natural phenomenon of exotic pools and grottos formed by enormous boulders scattered across pristine white sandy beaches.

Virgin Gorda The magic of this place is revealed as you make your way along the trail to Devils Bay, where the hidden caves and secret pools are lit by the shafts of bright sunlight that shine through the boulders above and around you. Devilís Bay is yet another picture perfect beach on Virgin Gorda. Usually a little quieter than the Baths, and with a good stretch of white sand to relax on, itís a beautiful spot to spend an hour or two sunbathing. Itís also a great base from which to explore the wonderful snorkelling opportunities around the rocks, caves and boulders of The Baths. British Virgin Islands beaches have been voted the "best beaches" by Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine.
