British Virgin Islands
Necker Belle cruises the clear waters of the Caribbean all year round! We create tailor-made itineraries, so it’s up to you where you’d like to experience the perfect holiday!
Sunbathe on a secluded beach, snorkel coral reefs with vibrant marine life, scuba dive ancient shipwrecks, hike valleys of sugar cane, banana and coconut plantations, discover the charm of the Caribbean people and party into the wee hours at St Barths - the opportunities are endless. And with a maximum sailing distance of 40 miles between each destination, this makes the Caribbean the perfect place to island hop.
We’ve put together a handy guide to some of the hotspots not to miss when sailing in the British Virgin Islands.
Surrounded by the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Sir Francis Drake Channel, Peter Island is a popular spot for a day’s swimming and snorkelling. Accessible only by boat or helicopter, the island’s idyllic location makes it a perfect destination for guests seeking an exclusive hideaway. Divers should head straight down to the wreck of the RMS Rhone, a small steamship driven ashore by a hurricane in 1867.
On the southern shores of Virgin Gorda are ‘The Baths’, a jumble of gigantic granite stones lying half submerged. The boulders have formed fascinating grottos, tunnels, arches and pools: a playground for both the novice and advanced diver.
The island is surrounded by Horseshoe Reef, the third largest continuous reef in the Eastern Caribbean, containing both patch reef and barrier reef – both the cause of many shipwrecks in former times. You can visit the distant white sand beaches and pristine snorkelling spots, the sites of shipwrecks and plundered treasure fleets. Anegada also has some of the most diverse bird life in the Eastern Caribbean.
