The British Virgin Islands is one of the Caribbean’s most spectacular getaways.
One of the first things to hit you when you step off of the plane is the breathtaking beauty. If you’re a fan of white sand beaches, flanked by azure oceans and warm weather, then you’re sure to love it here.
And there are plenty of things to keep you occupied while you’re catching a much-needed dose of Caribbean sunshine.
We’ve picked out 3 of our favorite reasons to visit the British Virgin Islands, which are designed to appeal to an array of different travellers. However, there are certainly more places to explore in this magnificent part of the world.
Sail Across The Ocean
One of the best ways to enjoy the island is to take a boat trip. And no - you don’t have to own your own boat. Instead, you can take a group trip on a chartered vessel run by a company such as BVI Yacht Charter or Dream Yacht Charter.
On these charter boats you have the freedom to explore the stunning blue waters and anchor down in whatever location you choose.
The best way to do this is as part of a group trip with friends which of course, would help to spread the costs.
Affordable day trips are also available from several tour companies and operators on the islands.
Known simply as The Baths, this has got to be one of the better known attractions at the British Virgin Islands.
Located on Virgin Gorda, this geological wonder is comprised of massive boulders, surrounded by a series of pools and caves that sits on the beach.
Tourists are free to explore these volcanic baths which are equipped with a series of ropes and ladders designed to help you make your way through.
At the end of the caves is a place called Devil’s Bay, a beautiful beach adjacent to the baths.
So after a long and exhilarating day of basking in the fresh waters of the baths, surrounded by stone cathedrals, you can then spend the rest of the afternoon, lying on the beach.
Take The Time To Kite Surf
If you’re after a little more adventure, then kitesurfing is a great way to enjoy the local scenery. There are plenty of places to learn the basics of the sport and sign up for an introductory course.
The best place to learn on the island is Anegada, which is also home to the Anegada Kite and Paddle festival. The festival attracts water sports enthusiasts from all over the world.
So if you’re the energetic and adventurous type, then this activity is ideal for you.
Take a group tour with Wigo Trips
But why do any of this alone? Trying to organize any worthwhile tourist activity can take its toll on the bank account - unless it is part of an organized tour.
However, when you join a group tour via the WiGo Trips app, then you’re joining a ready-made family. Our ambassadors are tasked with picking out a selection of the most interesting, adventurous and thrilling activities available. So by embarking on this collective adventure, you’ll get to enjoy parts of the world that you’ve never been to before.
