Virgin Islands

 
Tortola and the British Virgin Islands (also referred to as BVI) are one of the classic Caribbean yacht charter destination and a great choice for a sailing or motor boat vacation. If you like safe and beautiful anchorages surrounded by lovely waterside restaurants, The British Virgin Islands are a perfect match. They effortlessly combine smooth sailing, gorgeous snorkelling and stunning beaches across their 50 volcanic islands, islets and cays. The BVI are beautiful and seductive yet relaxed and serene. This peacefulness comes from a landscape where buildings are not allowed to be higher than the palms and an absence of direct flights from major tourist countries. The Caribbean and BVI yacht charter season runs from November through to July, while late July to early October corresponds to the hurricane season. Charter is also recommended from April to July, as there are less shore-based visitors, and the lovely sunny weather is complimented by a warm steady breeze.
