A Ten Day Sailing Itinerary in the BVI:
Tortola – Virgin Gorda – Anegada – Tortola
Charter your boat from the harbor in Road Town, which is a capital of the BVI. Spend the rest of the day discovering this wonderful city. We recommend you do some shopping at one of the local markets, which offer you everything, from fresh tropical fruit to hand-crafted jewelry. You also cannot omit the petite yet fascinating Virgin Island Folk Museum. Spend an evening watching the sunset at one of the nearby beachfront restaurants.
Start your day early and set off to the spectacular Virgin Gorda. Anchor in Spanish Town and spend your afternoon sightseeing in this lovely place. In the evening do some provision shopping at the local supermarket and dine at one of the great restaurants that can be found there; the most popular are: Bath & Turtle Restaurant located just inside the bay and Coco Maya situated a bit south. Coco Maya offers you a wonderful atmosphere and spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea.
Sail south to the beautiful The Baths National Park. The Baths is probably the greatest attraction in the entire BVI. It is a spectacular beach covered with boulders which are formed in shapes of arches, coves and tunnels. They are partly located underwater making the Baths a wonderful snorkeling site as well. Spend there the most of the day; this place is worth it. Dine at the excellent Top of the Baths Restaurant and in the evening, watch the charming sunset relaxing on the beach.
Set off early to the North Sound of Virgin Gorda. Stop at Copper Mine National Park, visit the ruins located on Mine Hill and admire the breathtaking view. When you reach North Sound moor in Little Dix Bay, have a late swim in the turquoise waters and enjoy dinner at the marvelous Pavillion at Little Dix Bay.
The North Sound is a paradise for watersports’ fans. Spend the fifth day of your cruise on surfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, snorkeling or just swimming in the pristine waters. You also cannot omit a great local restaurant called Hog Heaven.
Set off early to reach the northernmost of the BVI, the marvelous Anegada. Anegada differs from the other islands of the region as its landscape is flat and it is surrounded by the largest coral reef in the Caribbean called Horseshoe Reef. On this day, visit the Salt Pond, which area is inhabited by pink flamingos.
Spend this day in the neighborhood of the spectacular Loblolly Bay. Have fun snorkeling and diving in the turquoise lagoon and coral reef, admire the exceptionally rich aquatic environment of the Anegada region. Remember to try the local specialty, Anegada Lobster; there are many places which serve this meal, however the most popular are The Wonky Dog Restaurant & Bar and Pomato Point.
Set off very early to return to Tortola in the afternoon. Anchor at Parham Town and spend the rest of the day exploring its neighborhood.
Return to Road Town. Go hiking in the tropical surrounding of Sage Mountain National Park, swim with dolphins at Dolphin’s Discovery and in the meantime have a lunch at Skyworld, a wonderful hilltop restaurant. Anchor for the night at the exuberant Soper’s Hole Marina, have a drink at one of its great bars.
Sail back to Road Town and disembark by noon.
