The British Virgin Islands.
The beauty and easy sailing of the BVIs account for their popularity among sailing enthusiasts from around the world. Most of the cruising activity takes place in an area about 30 miles long and just half of that in width, extending from Jost Van Dyke to Virgin Gorda. The prevailing winds are steady from an easterly direction. The water is clean and clear with the bottom visible as far as 50 feet below. Beautiful fish and coral can be seen anywhere while snorkeling.
Among the most popular stops in the BVI’s are the Baths at Virgin Gorda, whose boulder-formed caves shelter private swimming grottoes. The Bight and caves on Norman Island are described in Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”. A likely setting considering the wrecks and pirates in these island’s history. Night-life is readily available in the BVI’s, and you won’t miss out! Numerous waterfront establishments make you feel welcome in the evenings.
A beautiful sunset while anchored at Anegada, a boisterous dinner at Foxy’s on Jost Van Dyke, and a visit to the Bitter End after a sail in the Gorda Sound is all part of your fun-filled itinerary. For those who scuba dive, there is an opportunity to dive on the wreck of “The Rhone” at Salt Island. Expect breathtaking scenery, great sailing conditions and returning home with memories to last a lifetime.

Robert and I want to thank Doris and Ron for a great introduction to cruising. The BVIs are so beautiful, and swimming in that clear turquoise water was a real treat. Well planned, well executed, it was a terrific vactaion. We are definitely hooked.
