Things to Do in British Virgin Islands
Surfs up in the jewel of the British Virgin Islands, Cane Garden Bay. Located on the northwestern coastline of Tortola Island, this fabulous portion of the beach close to Road Town is a favorite amongst water sport enthusiasts. From surfing, boating, jet skiing, boogey boarding, to good old fashioned swimming, the Cane Garden Bay’s spacious and well protected anchorage is a premiere destination for the anyone who likes getting in the water.
The area is not just known for its laid back beach life style, but glaring on shore activity as well, with a plethora of restaurants, clubs, pubs, and music, such is the case with Quito’s Gazebo, where owner Quito Rymer will perform wonderful dance ensembles for his much entertained customers.
With the addition of the diverse and very large Myett’s (restaurant/pub/reception hall) Cane Garden Bay is now also a popular place to get hitched; with many newlyweds celebrating there after getting married down by the water.
The quintessential white sands, turquoise water and colorful architecture of the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) have long been part of every Caribbean cruiser’s dream. There are 60 islands in all, but the most popular for a day in port are the main island of Tortola, Virgin Gorda with its famous rock formations known as the Baths, and the laidback beach-bum favorite, Jost Van Dyke.
Snorkeling, sailing, fishing and beach shore excursions can take you from one island to another. Alternatively, explore the island you dock at on your own, checking out local markets and historic attractions from the time of European settlement, or doing absolutely nothing on one of those perfect beaches.
