Sailing Holidays in the Caribbean - Elegant Resorts

Sailing around the British Virgin Islands

Posted on 04. Dec, 2012 by in Destinations, Travel Experts Advice

There’s a reason why the Caribbean is a dream holiday destination for so many people. You only need to look at the pictures in one of the Elegant Resorts brochures to see that the Caribbean islands epitomise our idea of paradise – all pale sand and azure seas with palm trees swaying in the background. But whilst most people think of the Caribbean and immediately begin planning a holiday to Barbados or Jamaica, here at Elegant Resorts we love finding the most exclusive and spectacular places to stay – and some of the most striking vistas of the Caribbean can be found on the British Virgin Islands.

The British Virgin Islands enjoy a year-round tropical climate making them the perfect holiday destination for any season. Whether you fancy getting out of the UK winter and coming back with a tan, or you’re looking for a unique summer holiday, this is one corner of the world which is appealing 365 days a year. The British Virgin Islands are made up of around 60 different tropical islands and islets – the largest island is Tortola, at 12 miles long and 5 miles wide – whilst the smallest islets are home to no one but the region’s native wildlife. For those who love the sea, the British Virgin Islands are blissful – with hundreds of miles of coastline, you can stay in one of the luxury hotels and explore the waters – or even better, organise a private charter and sail around the islands, exploring the coastline as you go!The British Virgin Islands - Elegant Resorts

If you’re interested in seeing some of the more remote parts of the British Virgin Islands, we’d recommend taking a crewed luxury yacht charter from Yacht Connections. Combing complete control over where you go and how long you stay for, a chartered yacht means you can enjoy the height of luxury accommodation whilst also relaxing in the knowledge that the yacht’s staff will cater to your every need. If you’re looking for a holiday with a dash of adventure, this is the perfect trip for you – off-the-beaten-track coves to snorkel in, whales to watch from the deck of your boat or cocktails to enjoy as the sun sets over the Caribbean Sea.

There are a number of crafts which can be chartered for an exploration of the British Virgin Islands – so for a romantic trip, why not think about hiring the stunning Pearl Catamaran? The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, with an en-suite bathroom, whilst the craft’s crew can create an exquisite three course meal with wine to be enjoyed. In contrast, if you’re planning on taking the whole family out to explore the islands, we’d definitely recommend a craft with some family-friendly features. As well as the standard gear for both scuba diving and snorkelling, there are crews which offer thrilling extras such as lessons in wake-boarding and kite-boarding or even towing the kids along in rubber rings! Sailing Holidays in the Caribbean - Elegant Resorts

There are a number of different options for a luxury holiday in the British Virgin Islands which includes a few days at sea. Whether you choose to start your trip at one of the fantastic hotels on Virgin Gorda, such as the Rosewood Little Dix Bay – or you head straight out to your craft from the airport, you’ll be amazed by the beauty and the gentle pace of life in the region.
