Tortola: A postcard from the Caribbean
Tortola is the biggest of the British Virgin Islands. Once the home of the infamous pirate Blackbeard, today it is an ideal destination for a holiday to the British Virgin Islands on a luxury charter, especially if you are looking for unspoilt, tropical landscapes.
The best way to enjoy the island is on a luxury charter. Exclusive as many other Caribbean destinations, Tortola’s diving and fishing sites set it apart from all of them. The caves and seabed boast an incredible marine life, with underwater reefs and wreckages of old vessels.
If you plan to spend a few nights ashore, book at Surfsong Villa Restort. This glamorous hotel with a beachfront is as charming and elegant as an exclusive beach cabin.
Long Bay at Beef Island is an ideal snorkeling spot and a dreamy location to have many romantic walks at sunset. Apple Bay Beach is a surfer’s paradise, while at Dolphin Discovery visitors get a chance to get close and swim with the sea mammals.
Moor your charter in one of the island’s many inlets and head ashore. The Sage Mountain National Park features sites to gaze out to the untamed rain forest. Tortola boasts colonial houses and botanical gardens featuring old ruins.
The Sugar Mill Restaurant, set in a picturesque 18th century stone mill, is one of the best dining spots on the island. With a romantic atmosphere and nightly changing menu, the restaurant is well worth a visit if you plan to stop at Tortola on your luxury yacht charter.
The heavenly isle of Anegada is a short sailing distance from Tortola. Delight in thewildlife and catch a glimpse of the isle’s native rare species of rock iguana on the nature’s trail.
The wild beauty of Tortola’s white sandy beaches, the remains of old civilizations and a sweet local cuisine make it an absolute must of your luxury yacht charter vacation of the British Virgin Islands.
