Things to do on Necker Island

From sandy white beaches to crystal clear water, there is an endless list of activities on Necker Island to keep you busy throughout your stay. Land-lovers can enjoy everything from yoga to tennis and water lovers can learn to kitesurf or embark on a sailing race around the island. And when the sun goes down... the party starts.


Watersports are included in every stay and our team of highly qualified instructors can help you master:

  • Kite surfing
  • Water-skiing and wakeboarding
  • Sailing
  • Paddleboarding
  • Kayaking
  • Subwing

Whether you want to try something new, enjoy adrenalin-fuelled fun or explore the waters more serenely, it's all available to do in a safe and controlled environment with hands-on tuition where needed.

Snorkelling & Scuba Diving

The waters of the British Virgin Islands offer incredible snorkelling and diving opportunities.

  • Snorkelling: Snorkels, masks and fins are available to explore our waters. For those wanting to venture further afield and explore other underwater locations, we can organise day excursions with all equipment and plenty of refreshments
  • Scuba diving: Wreck, reef and night dives can all be arranged nearby. If you're not PADI qualified we are able to arrange instruction on the island. Additional charges apply

Mangrove Conservation Tour

Be a part of the mangrove conservation efforts in the British Virgin Islands. Join an immersive tour, operated by local business GroundSea Adventures, where you will traverse through indigenous mangroves on a stand-up paddle or kayak (in a single or a double kayak), learn from an expert guide how the propagules are cultivated and about the work that goes into their rehabilitation and preservation, before getting hands-on with planting the propagules.

The tour costs USD 165 for adults and USD 135 for children aged 12. There is no cost for children aged six and under, however, they are required to share a double kayak with an adult. Included are:

  • Out-planting 10 propagules
  • Boat and taxi transfers
  • A donation to the HLSCC National Mangrove Nursery via Unite BVI

Yoga, Tennis & More

On island, there is an exciting array of activities to enjoy during your stay:

  • Yoga: Enjoy bespoke yoga classes led by our instructor, or grab a mat and freestyle on the beach. Yoga at sunrise or sunset is also not to be missed
  • Tennis: With a resident tennis pro, two floodlit courts and plenty of equipment you might find it hard to tear yourself away during your stay!
  • Hiking: Necker Island is 74 acres in size with a 3 mile perimeter so there are a number of trails to take you around the coast or over the main ridge; we can also arrange a guided tour if you'd prefer
  • Gym: With a view like ours from the gym you won't need much encouragement to keep up your fitness regime
  • Bespoke activities: We can tailor every aspect of your stay, so get in touch if you would like something a bit different...beach olympics anyone?
