Christopher Columbus first discovered the British Virgin Islands in 1492 and went on to become a well known explorer.
He named the islands the ‘Virgin Islands’ on his second voyage in 1493 after the 11,000 Virgins of St Ursula for their untouchable beauty. Nothing has changed really except for the number of virgins perhaps….
You too can become an explorer and rediscover these beautiful islands. From remote and romantic beaches to wild and wonderful bars, the BVI has something to offer everyone.
Did you know?
The island famous drink called the ‘painkiller’ was originally invented in the BVI to mimic a blender drink for remote island bars that did not have the luxury of electricity.
Test your knowledge and see if you know what the ingredients are… there might just be a winning Conch Cap in it for you!
Little Jost Van Dyke is home to the latest craze in the area, ‘The B-Line Bar’. This little gem is nestled in the foliage with beautiful snorkeling on its front door and conveniently located just down the shores from Sandy Spit.
The B-Line Bar takes you back to the good ol days here in the Caribbean with a very basic set up, the best atmosphere and lovely people!
They have definitely found a little piece of heaven here in the islands! With beautiful snorkeling, white sandy beaches and cold drinks with names like ‘Passion Confusion’… it is definitely worth a visit on your next trip.

Vixen Point offers a beautiful anchorage in the BVI just at the tip of this island. What is the name of the island where it is located?
Not sure… here is a hint… There is a bar ashore called ‘The Sandbox’.

The galley is well appointed on the starboard side of the saloon with ample space for a couple of you to be preparing the food for the BBQ. It is fully equipped with 12 volt refrigeration, coffee percolator, stove with oven and a plethora of pots and pans.
The saloon table is a very comfortable place to relax down below with a good book and a glass of wine, plenty of space for all six of you to eat or play games.
