La baie de White Beach - Jost Van Dyke-haute résolution

VSV invites you to set a course for the British Virgin Islands, a water sports paradise and spellbinding destination for a dream vacation.

After lifting anchor at the Nanny Cay Marina, one of the BVI’s most gorgeous marinas, located on the island of Tortola, you’ll be transported by the steady stream of warm trade winds across a spectacular succession of paradise islands. Beaches, snorkelling, scubadiving, water sports and hiking are but some of the exciting activities that await you.

Where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic, there’s a chain of 60 islands called the British Virgin Islands. With hundreds of secret bays and hidden coves, they’ve been a haven for seafarers for centuries. Columbus visited and named the islands. After Columbus came the adventurers, the pirates and the buccaneers who preyed on the Spanish galleons bound for Europe with Incan gold.Photos croisière Louise Gendron - Châtelaine 006

Today, the British Virgin Islands attract a more sophisticated type of seafarer. They pull their boats into one of the marinas to eat lobster at the beachside restaurants. Or they sail through the islands to spend days as castaways on forgotten cays. The British Virgin Islands’ reputation as the watersports capital of the Caribbean is not at all surprising.

They are all of volcanic origin except one, Anegada, which is of coral and limestone. The two major islands, Tortola and Virgin Gorda, along with the groups of Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, are home to most of the total population of about 20,000.

Sublime views, deserted beaches, sea turtles, dolphins, rainbow coloured fish and beautiful coral reefs — they’re all yours to discover along the British Virgin Islands from one of our splendid sailboats and always within view of land.
