True adventure lives off the shore in the BVI.

When you head to the British Virgin Islands, you’ll have your pick of spectacular resorts, cottages and villas, marinas or glamping site — each offering authenticity that’ll exceed your Caribbean vacation expectations. And no matter where you stay, adventure can be found right down the beach. Because when you head to the BVI, we all know what you’re really going for: to experience the spirit of the ocean from sunup to sundown.

Compete in the BVI Poker Run

Located in Virgin Gorda off the shores of a magnificent blue lagoon known as “North Sound,” Leverick Bay Resort & Marina is one of the most beautiful locations in the West Indies. It’s also home to the famous BVI Poker Run, a sailing competition where participants travel a predetermined course and draw a playing card at each stop until they complete the route. The objective is easy: the best hand wins. This race takes place over the Memorial Day weekend.

Cast Out at Scrub Island

Have the luxury vacation of a lifetime when you plan your trip to Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, just seven minutes by boat from the airport on Beef Island.  This private island resort is all about the finer things in life, from your accommodations to your outdoor adventures. Plan your vacation, from leisure to excursions, which should absolutely include some deep-sea fishing – you’re sure to reel in some brag-worthy trophies.

Dive In at Oil Nut Bay

From the elegant accommodations to the amenities to the excursions, Oil Nut Bay, located on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, is a luxury villa resort that offers adventures that can only be found on the coast of this gorgeous island. The on-site activities coordinator can help you plan your adventures, including hikes in the national parks, sand volleyball on the beach and, of course, diving or snorkeling in The Baths, an awe-inspiring geological wonder. Located on the opposite side of Virgin Gorda, The Baths is a collection of granite boulders as large as 40 feet in diameter which include white sand beaches and secret rock pools throughout. Follow the trail of steps and rope handrails to Devil’s Bay, a daytime anchorage ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

Camp Out on Anegada Beach

Anegada Beach Club takes everything you thought camping was and elevates it. Situated atop dunes on the north side of Anegada island, a new “go-to” place on the BVI’s must-visit list, these oceanfront luxury tents provide a magnificent beach view from every angle, including views of world-class kite surfers. The resort even offers kitesurfing school and stand-up paddle boarding lessons so you can join the fun. Be sure to ask about the Kite-Surf & Stay Packages before you book.

Set Sail from Treasure Isle

Treasure Isle Hotel is conveniently located in the hills of Road Town, the capital of the BVI in Tortola. Hop from one island to another or take a dive into the waters – because when you’re out to sea, the possibilities are endless.
