Top 5 places to visit in the BVI
Here is a list of the Top 5 places to visit in the BVI, (POST IRMA) with pictures
No. 1 Spring bay, Virgin Gorda.
This magnificent Virgin Gorda beach, which is adjacent to The Baths, is a great place for snorkeling, swimming or just hanging out in the sun, probably one of the most beautiful bays in Virgin Gorda if not the whole British Virgin Islands, a must-stop on any BVI sailing vacation or charter,
Reviewed March 2018 Jennifer wrote "Absolutely beautiful turquoise water!!! Such a serene stretch of breathtaking beach. We were going to snorkel, but the water was way too cold for this southern girl! We climbed over/around some rocks and enjoyed the waves crashing instead.
It was so beautiful that we went back again another day!"
No. 2 Horseshoe Reef, Anegada.
This Anegada reef is the third largest in the world and the site of many shipwrecks, making it a diver’s dream, Anegada used to be an intimidating trip for first time charterers in the BVI but now due to accurate GPS and chart plotters on almost every charter boat in the fleet the cautious mariner can safely navigate the tricky entrance into this one of a kind Island paradise in the BVI.
Reviewed by Janver in May 2018 he wrote "Our group joined Captain Kelly on our second day in Anegada for a 4 hour excursion and needless to say, we were blown with the scenery and tribal knowledge the Kelly presented to us! He knew exactly where the big Lobbeys were hiding and got us up close and personal to the stunning pink flamingos. We also had the opportunity to take some fresh conch home to make some wonderful ceviche. Kellys passion for the islands and preserving its well being will allow myself and future generations to be in continued awe of this amazing place #bvistrong"
No.3 White Bay Jost Van Dyke.
The classic white sand beach, rum bar, azure blue sea, there is something unmistakable about this spot, instantly recognizable in any photo, this quiet little beach is transformed during the day into the party spot! People watching? This is definitely the place to do it but get there early as the anchorage can fill up quickly.
Reviewed by Lucy August 2018 she wrote "Literally, our favorite place on earth (STILL)!
We just made a return trip to Jost in August 2018. Fearing the worst, we weren't sure what to expect, but White Bay has been mostly restored to it's pristine glory after being ravaged by 2 Cat 5 Hurricanes less than 1 year ago. New mature palms have been planted and the beach bar favorites have been rebuilt/restored. The water is as crystal clear as ever and the white sand is as pure and clean as I've ever seen it. The locals have clearly worked their tails off rebuilding, and the result is nothing short of amazing. Every time we return to White Bay is better than the last, and we can't wait to come back again soon! If you've never been, you're missing out on the best beach in the Caribbean. If you've been before, you already know what you are missing so hustle back and show the locals your support by having a few Painkillers and getting some BVI Strong merchandise!
No.4 Savannah / Pond Bay, Virgin Gorda.
Virgin Gorda's loveliest beach is a long strand of powdery white coastline lapped by placid waters, can be tricky to get into and off limits to some charter companies very often you can be the only boat in the anchorage and the sunsets are quite stunning, not recommended in a Northerly swell.
Reviewed by Roamin April 2018 he wrote "We went here on a day trip to the baths. We sailed with four couples and took a dingy in, then took a taxi to the baths. After lunch at the top of the baths we got a taxi over to Savannah Bay. We literally had this beach all to ourselves. Our driver left for a while and returned with beer for our group and we mostly splashed in the water with our drinks in hand. We took one of the best photos of our entire trip here. The beach is clean, and the sand is soft and perfect for walking barefoot or wading in the water."
No.5 RMS Rhone wreck dive.
Park that encompasses the wreck of the HMS Rhone, a mail ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1867.
People still travel from all over the world to dive the famous wreck of the "Rhone" the dive site suffered some minor damage from the hurricanes but is still a world class wreck dive.
Here is what Scott and to say in July 2018 "This is still a fantastic dive, even after the hurricane. Really great photography opportunities and a good place if you have divers of varying skill levels (novices on the prop, more advanced divers on the deeper sections)."
