The wonderful underwater life – British Virgin Islands
As a real sailing fan, you have probably seen almost everything closest to your region. In that case, we advise you to visit the British Virgin Islands from aboard. You have about sixty islands to explore while your stay! The biggest ones of that divine archipelago are the Tortola, the Jost Van Dyke, the Virgin Gorda and the Anegada. The most popular place to start the voyage is the Hodges Creek Marina on the Tortola. Also, the Soper’s Hole on the Tortola is an ideal place for your yacht, as it is considered one of the safest in case of bad weather. The capital of the British Virgin Islands, Road Town, is one of the most important yacht chartering spot in the Carribean.
Be sure you also visit the Cane Garden bay, the Nany Cay marina, Brandywine Bay and the Brewers Bay. These picturesque places will certainly stay in your mind, although the Brandywine bay is a rather difficult one to enter due to the numerous coral reefs.
Are you afraid of the high costs that will destroy your dream holiday? They will surely not be much higher than in other parts of the world.
Moreover, if you have simply no experience in sailing, you can attend one of the sailing schools, which will teach you the basics of that beautiful activity. Another possibility is to charter a fully crewed vessel, thanks to which you will not need to worry about your abilities or any procedures, papers, permissions etc. Simply enjoy your stay and view the fantastic beaches, uninhabited islands with their natural treasures, the tropical climate. Take a dive in one of the clearest waters of the world and take a glimpse on the wonderful underwater life, the wide variety of tropical species.
For divers, the Guana Island is considered the best place to be, as it is quite convenient for anchorage even for a longer period of time.
The Little Bay in the Tortola, on the other hand, is said to be a bit dangerous for anchorage and is permitted only when the sea is quite still.
During your stay in the BVI, we also recommend visiting the Baths, the characteristic beaches of the Virgin Gorda.
As for the climate in the BVI area, between June and October there is high possibility or a hurricane. The best sailing winds are said to occur in December and January. These are also called “Christmas Winds”. However, some people cannot be stopped from going out sailing among the British Virgin Islands by any weather.
When getting off the vessel, you also have plenty of opportunity to try the local cuisine-tens of restaurants are welcoming the hungry sailors right next to the marina. Also, if you feel a sudden urge to surf through the web, numerous internet cafes await you.
The British Virgin Islands can also be sailed through by monohulls, bareboats and catamarans, which are considered one of the most popular vessels to charter. Make sure you book the charter in proper advance, so that you can get better prices, sometimes even twenty percent off, and you have plenty of time to plan the trip straight from the beginning and avoid any unpleasant surprises.
