Things to do on Necker Island
Or do nothing at all
There’s 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.
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.
Our team of highly qualified instructors can help you master:
- Kite surfing
- Water-skiing and wakeboarding
- Stand-up paddle-boarding
Snorkelling and scuba diving
The waters of the British Virgin Islands offer incredible snorkelling and diving opportunities.
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
If you prefer to scuba, we can arrange wreck, reef and night dives nearby. If you're not PADI qualified we can also arrange instruction on the island. Additional charges apply.
Mangrove conservation tours
These tours offer you the opportunity to take part in 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).
Travelling through the mangroves, you’ll 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, pickleball and more
There’s an exciting array of activities to enjoy during your stay on the island.
- 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!
- Padel and pickleball: For guaranteed fast-paced competitive fun and exercise, head to the Island’s new Padel and Pickleball courts
- Hiking: Necker Island is 74 acres in size with a 3-mile perimeter so there are several 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?
Whether you’d like to indulge in some much-needed self-care after an evening of partying in true Necker style, or recover from an energetic day full of activities, we’ve created the ultimate sanctuary for you to escape to for a total mind-body-soul reset.
As if being on Necker Island wasn’t relaxing enough, the island also boasts the beautiful Bali Samudra spa treatment rooms, combining carefully curated treatments using Sodashi, a premium skincare range, with a peaceful beachside setting.
