Best Things To Do During A BVI Yacht Charter

Marina Nazario | July 6, 2021



Make The Most Of Your Holiday In The British Virgin Islands.

Travel writers are often encouraged not to use cliches in their writing such as “white sand beaches,” “crystal clear water,” “hidden gem,” or “breathtaking.” But when writing about the British Virgin Islands, it’s difficult not to use those phrases because they’re true. The BVI is a collection of 60 islands in the heart of the Caribbean. It’s one of the best yachting destinations in the world. The islands really do have white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and hidden gems that make for the perfect Caribbean escape.

Denison offers plenty of luxury yacht charters in the BVI. You can opt for a popular catamaran or a bigger motor yacht depending on the number of guests, activities, or preference. Throughout your vacation, you’ll get to experience exclusive dining, sailing, island hopping, snorkeling, and water sports that make the islands a memorable destination. Here are 6 activities to request on your next BVI yacht charter.


Water Sports At Anegada

Anegada is nicknamed “the drowned island” for its nearly flat elevation (compared to other islands in the Caribbean). The island is similar to the Bahamas with soft white beaches (had to) and crystal clear, shallow waters (no other way to describe it). Anegada is known for being an excellent spot for water sports including kite surfing and bonefishing. While you’re there, stop by the Wonky Dog for dinner and order the lobster. You can thank us later.

Lunch at Oil Nut Bay

Sail or anchor around Virgin Gorda

During your yacht charter, you may sail or anchor around Virgin Gorda. This island is home to luxury resorts, five-star dining, and the best snorkel and dive sites. Venture on land to enjoy lunch at Nova Restaurant at Oil Nut Bay where dining and reclining are a top priority. Excuse the cliche, but it is a picture-perfect restaurant and lounge. After feasting on a whole grilled lobster with garlic butter and mango salsa, take a cat nap on an overwater hammock or comfortable daybed with views of the teal sea.

Explore The Baths on Virgin Gorda

The Baths are one of the most incredible natural formations in the Caribbean. It’s a national park on the southern end of Virgin Gorda filled with massive granite boulders that create caves and walkways for people to explore. Climbing through the crevices and grottoes of The Baths is a full-day experience that you’ll be talking about for days. Take your time enjoying the Baths and the surrounding beaches. Refuel at a restaurant called Top of the Baths that boasts incredible views of the water and excellent local food.

Spend A Day At Jost Van Dyke

Soggy Dollar Bar at Jost Van Dyke

Your BVI yacht charter might travel to Jost Van Dyke where you’ll find the notorious Soggy Dollar Bar (home to the original Painkiller). Schedule time to explore this 4-mile long island where you can bar hop, paddleboard, or sunbathe on white powder sand beaches (seriously, no other way to describe it). Enjoy island time — there’s no stress allowed on Jost Van Dyke.

Snorkeling At Norman Island

You can’t go to the BVI without snorkeling or scuba diving. Schedule time to snorkel around Norman Island, the (speculated) setting for Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. The island is known for its caves that are perfect for snorkeling. It’s a weather-dependent activity, so if the seas are calm and your guide says it’s safe, take the opportunity to explore the caves at Norman Island. You’ll see plenty of colorful fish and rays, plus orange cup coral and red sponge. Keep an eye out for pirate’s booty — legend has it there’s buried treasure on Norman Island.
