BVI – British Virgin Islands
A collection of more than 40 islands awaits those curious enough to venture forth on a British Virgin Islands yacht charter, a sailing haven for holiday-goers for years. This popular destination for ocean lovers boasts miles upon miles of beaches surrounded by clear waters and peppered with lovely vistas to enjoy as your yacht pulls into view. It is very close to the U.S. Virgin islands, another destination available through Nicholson Charters.
The only trouble you might have is deciding which of these various islands you want to visit. Nicholson Charters can help, assisting you with making the most out of your holiday to the British Virgin Islands. If you enjoy taking in the sights, you must visit Spring Bay, a Baths-like setting but with fewer crowds. The area is dotted with lovely natural boulders amid the white sand and perfect for snorkeling near “the Crawl. This area is safe, enclosed by the hulking boulders. It’s perfect for a secluded get-away by yacht.
You could also explore The Baths themselves, a popular destination for yacht charters in the British Virgin Islands. This national park contains the remnants of volcanic lava that are more than 70 million years old. Snorkel among the exotic pools and grottoes in crystal clear sea water and enjoy the spectacular sea life.
Nearby is Devil’s Bay National Park, a brief walk down a cool trail leading through the Caves.
If you enjoy mountainous scenery, you will want to take the time to visit Tortola during your British Islands yacht charter. Many visitors enjoy a drive along Ridge Road down the center of the island to take in the scenery, then enjoy some of the white sand beaches the island has to offer. There are also some excellent locations for surfing in locations such as Apple Bay and Josiah’s Bay. If you are more interested in a leisurely stroll, the J.R. O’Neal Botanic Gardens in Road Town should not be missed. It covers three acres and contains a lovely selection of exotic herbs, plants, and trees indigenous to the area. Visitors who want to enjoy a bit of history can also stop by Main Street to see some architectural structures from the past, including churches and cafes.
For a more secluded getaway, sail over to Jost Van Dyke, a location named for a famed Dutch pirate. Enjoy looking out over the Great Harbour or enjoy a snorkeling trip from the Nicholson Charter yacht.
Be sure to visit one of the many local seafood restaurants to enjoy fresh local cuisine, which you will find in Little Harbour, a short trek away from Great Harbour. You can eat while looking out over a natural breakwater, enjoying the view of the bubbly pool nearby and see all of the natural beauty that the sea has to offer. Whatever your preference, Nicholson Charters can assist you with selecting the yacht charter of a lifetime.
