Surrounding area

The British Virgin Islands are considered the pearl of the Caribbean. They were discovered about 500 years ago by Christopher Columbus and were called Virgin Islands because of their nativeness. The islands experienced an eventful history from a pirate’s nest to a holiday paradise. Today the names of the islands still remind us of famous pirates. So one sails here to “Jost van Dyke” island, named after a Dutch buccaneer, past “Norman”, “Flanagan”, “Peter” and “Cooper” Island. A very special pirate, Sir Francis Drake, even had the whole canal dedicated to him.

Sailing area

Short distances and easy navigation make this a popular yacht holiday destination for families and beginners. The largest island of the British Virgin Islands, Tortola, is considered the centre of yachting and the starting point for charter trips. Here you decide whether you want to head for one of the many idyllic bays and relax or enjoy the hustle and bustle in the marinas.
