Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke
Just a few hours’ sail north of Tortola lies the island of Jost Van Dyke. From Road Town you’ll head west in the Sir Francis Drake Channel and turn north through Thatch Cut along the USVI / BVI international border, and continue north across a short passage to Great Harbour. Jost Van Dyke is home to the world famous Foxy’s beach bar which has live music and barbecue on the beach. Just over the hill nearby is White Bay and the Soggy Dollar Bar where you can sample the famous “Painkiller” cocktail while lounging on the white sand or wading in the warm azure blue water.
Twelve nautical miles north of Virgin Gorda, the serenity and stunning beauty of Anegada awaits. A visit to this island is always prized. Few get to visit here since it’s north of the Sir Francis Drake Channel and requires a little under a day’s passage. Far from the crowds, Anegada is ringed by pristine white sand beaches and clear emerald blue waters. Head on over to see the flamingos in the national park, have lunch and stroll along Cow Wreck Beach, and then settle into an evening at Setting Point to enjoy the famous Anegada lobster dinner barbecue.
Saba Rock, Virgin Gorda
Virgin Gorda is the eastern-most island on the Sir Francis Drake Channel with Anegada a day’s sail to the north. At the north side of the island, the waters of Gorda Sound are ringed by islands and reefs creating a calm protected area for water sports of all kinds. And there between Prickly Pear Island and The Bitter End on Virgin Gorda lies the tiny island of Saba Rock. Once the home of a famous dive instructor and dive operation, it’s now the site of a luxury hotel. Saba Rock is the perfect place to experience the beauty of the BVI with a 360 degree view. And don’t miss the sunset tarpin feeding on the deck!
Leverick Bay, Virgin Gorda
Southwest across the Gorda Sound from Saba Rock is Leverick Bay surrounded by tall hillsides and protected by islands and reefs all around. The Leverick Bay Resort & Marina has a wide array of water sports equipment for rent including jet skis, standup paddle boards, hobiecats, and more. Grab an open air jeep ride and tour the island on the way to the stunning Baths on the island’s south end. After a day of exploration return to Leverick Bay for a sumptuous Caribbean dinner on the outdoor patio overlooking the sound.
With the trades off the aft quarter, a few hours’ sail to the southwest passes The Dogs to the north and Virgin Gorda, Fallen Jerusalem and Ginger Island to the south – arriving at Manchioneel Bay, Cooper Island. Here you’ll find the beautiful Cooper Island Beach Club with restaurant, great shopping boutique, rum bar, coffee shop and bakery. For scuba divers, you’ll meet the dive boat at the Beach Club’s pier. For kayakers and snorkelers don’t miss Cistern Rock for the colorful reef fish and the potential sighting of sea turtles who live there. Savor the sunset from the Beach Club deck in the warm Caribbean breeze.
The Bight, Norman Island
Sailing southwest past Salt Island, Dead Chest, and Peter Island, and turning south, Norman Island is dead ahead. Norman is the southernmost island in the BVI chain. As the legend goes, the caves of Norman Island are the locations where the real pirates of the Caribbean hid their buried treasure four centuries ago. Kayak or snorkel the caves at Treasure Point and spot an abundance of small colorful fish at the mouths of the four caves. If beach combing is on the list, head on over to the Pirate’s Bight restaurant or pick up some last minute souvenirs at the boutique. And there’s always the famous and super-fun Willy-T floating bar and restaurant in The Bight serving lunch and dinner.
