Islands in the Sun
For true devotees of sailing, boating, and deep-sea fishing, the 60 or so islands and cays that comprise the British Virgin Islands are an unmatched destination - one best experienced from the surrounding cerulean seas. The largest and most popular of the islands, Tortola offers a bounty of marinas and charter operations that cater to every seaborne aspiration, from half-day boating excursions and skiff rentals, to staffed and provisioned, full-day and multi-day charters aboard an array of yachts and power cats. Your Destination Concierge can arrange for the perfect boating excursion to suit your timeframe and skill level, allowing you to experience the BVI's bounty of island attractions on neighboring Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, Anegada, and a collection of smaller cays, all while staying at the height of luxury on Tortola's dazzling West End. Whatever your charter vessel of choice, you'll find no shortage of restaurants and world-famous barefoot beach bars punctuating the shoreline of every island outpost here, the best of which are just minutes away from your spectacular residence. Set adrift, drop anchor and experience them all. This is what a BVI vacation is all about.

Concierge Pick: For one of the most memorable dining experiences in the islands, visit Brandywine Bay on Tortola, a spectacular Italian venue set amid lush gardens overlooking the turquoise sea.
Member Favorite: Members rave about the authentic "painkiller" cocktail - a delicious blend of local rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, coconut cream, and fresh nutmeg - from the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke. Charter a half- or full-day sailing excursion to the nearby island to try the original, or just mix up a painkiller right at your residence.
