We spend this week exploring all the beautiful islands and best places of the British Virgin Islands. It is like a vacation after all the difficult sailing and breakdowns since we left the North Atlantic months earlier.
No wonder it is one of the most visited Caribbean countries for chartering sailboats to explore – I can see why all these visitors want to charter a sailboat in the British Virgin Islands.
We visit Cane Garden Bay and Beef Island near the international airport on Tortola, see some of the damage from Hurricane Irma, go snorkelling and freediving at the Indians and head to Jost Van Dyke – famous for its beach bars Foxy’s and the Soggy Dollar.
We make new friends, solve our lack of dinghy motor and get an exciting new addition to our anchoring gear.
We love this place and that is even before exploring Anegada and Virgin Gorda that apparently resemble paradise! We can see why Richard Branson made his home away from home on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands!
I wonder if the Virgin Islands belonging to the United States are this beautiful too!

HELP US SAVE THE OCEANS
Since we live on the ocean and love it so much, we are trying to help save it. We changed all of our sunscreen, shampoos and body washes on-board to ensure they are lake, river and reef friendly. Please, if we can influence one thing you do, make the change with us and help us save the ocean!
