About the British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands, or the B.V.I., making up the British half of the Virgin Islands, are located north and east of the US Virgin Islands. The island chain, famous for its charter sailing industry, is made up of several large islands as well as many small islands.

Our Travels in the British Virgin Islands

We first visited the British Virgin Islands during our July 2010 trip to St. Thomas. We took the ferry over from Red Hook to Jost Van Dyke to visit White Bay Beach for the day. We had a great time on the beach and ended up at Foxy’s waiting out a torrential rainstorm.

In January of 2011, we chartered the Breanker catamaran with 3 other couples and sailed around many of the British Virgin Islands. It was a wonderful experience being able to visit so many beautiful islands in only a week’s time. Read more about our travels in the British Virgin Islands…
