Best Beaches in the BVI

There are sandy beaches to sink your toes in everywhere

The beaches that surround the BVI are what travel magazines are made of. With a picturesque cove and beach around every corner, there’s ample opportunity to find a little bit of what you fancy, whether it’s seclusion or a more upbeat atmosphere.

Jost Van Dyke

Here are a few of the best beaches to check out on your luxury charter:

  • Cane Garden Bay
  • Located on the popular island of Tortola, this beach is lively and welcoming. During the day, it’s ideal for families with a host of restaurants and rental shops to entertain the kids, while at night the hopping bar scene attracts adults looking for tropical cocktails and reggae music.

  • Loblolly Bay
  • A luxurious beach on the island of Anegada, Loblolly Bay’s creamy sand is sprinkled with rustic beach bars, inviting sun shelters and quaint cottages. Seeming almost untouched and private, Anegada is known as “The Beach Lover’s Island.”

  • Sandy Cay
  • For those looking to feel like a castaway, head to this uninhabited, tiny island off the southeastern coast of Jost Van Dyke. Sandy Cay is a nature preserve that’s only accessible by boat, like a British Virgin Islands yacht charter. With nothing else to distract you but a gorgeous white-sand beach and palm grove, this islet is the perfect escape.

  • White Bay Beach
  • There’s a reason White Bay Beach is loved by charter guests. It has it all! The beautiful stretch of soft of white sand is nestled up to lush jungle, offering the perfect place to while away an afternoon. Not to mention, the beach is protected by an incredible snorkeling reef, a great place to explore the water. Yet, most go for the lively atmosphere. The beach is dotted with fun beachside bars serving up legendary Caribbean cocktails.

  • Deadman’s Beach
  • Located on Peter Island, Deadman’s Beach has postcard-worthy good looks. In fact, it might be the most picturesque beach in all of the BVI. The crescent-shaped stretch of sand is lined with shade-throwing palms, offering visitors the perfect setting for an afternoon picnic or a relaxing beach day. Plus, since it’s difficult to reach (unless you arrive via yacht!), Deadman’s Beach remains quieter than most. Deadman’s was hit hard by Irma, but restoration efforts have been underway for some time; the beach should be ready for the 2018-2019 charter season.

  • Long Bay Beach
  • Long Bay Beach is one of Tortola’s most stunning beaches. Nearly a mile long, the beach offers the perfect locale for a classic Caribbean beach day. On the eastern end, Long Bay is lined with resorts and beach shacks serving up fruity, rum-soaked cocktails. But if you’re looking for solitude, you’ll find in on the beach’s western stretch, which is quieter and offers some of the best swimming in all of the BVI.

You’ll never find huge resorts and tourists fighting over space, and every charter guest enjoys feeling as though they’re the first person to ever discover some of the more secluded beaches. A yacht charter allows you to find the beach of your dreams and then turn right around to find another, one that will likely go beyond your imagination with its beauty!
