British Virgin Islands offer the best sailing in the world. With over three dozen islands to explore in the BVI, the four largest British Virgin Islands are Tortola, Anegada, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke, its prime for a luxury yacht vacation.
NOTE: This BVI review is from our December 2016 visit, the British Virgin Islands anchorages and resorts have been severely impacted since the September 2017 Hurricane Irma.
Located 60 miles east of Puerto Rico, and just east of the US Virgin Islands, the entire British Virgin Islands comprise only 59 square miles, so its ideal cruising territory – close and incredibly scenic.
This Caribbean archipelago of BVI is exceptionally yachtsmen friendly, English speaking, with dozens of secure harbors and gorgeous cays. The best way to explore the BVI is by yacht, you can rent a barefoot boat if you are an experienced sailor or boater, or hire a Captain and crew, and put your feet up on a fully provisioned yacht for a relaxing luxury week aboard a beautiful boat – power boat, catamaran – dual hull as they say, or sailboat- aka: mono-hull.
See our Tips for Sailing a Charter in the BVI for the best cruising, or renting, “chartering”, a yacht in the BVI for a week’s sailing vacation in the spectacular, sunny British Virgin Islands.
