St John, US Virgin Islands
St John is the smallest and most enchanting of the US Virgin Islands. The majority of its verdant hills and sun drenched beaches are preserved as a National Park. St John is a non-commercial, low key treasure island with tranquil beaches, sleepy lagoons, underwater coral gardens, scenic roads, well maintained walking trails, lush foliage and fascinating plantation ruins.
The world famous Trunk bay is part of that national park, and it’s under water! Grab your snorkel and follow the underwater trail that highlights both coral formations and fish.
If beaches are your spot St. John is for you; Francis Bay, Cinnamon Bay, and Trunk Bay are some of the best in the Caribbean. Snorkeling near Waterlemon Cay is breathtaking. Or you can shop the day away in Cruz Bay.

Norman Island, BVI
Norman Island is the largest uninhabited island in the British Virgin Islands and is steeped in pirate legend. Locals call it Treasure Island because of age-old stories of buried pirates' loot. Blackbeard, one of the most famous and feared pirates of all time supposedly hung out here between raids.
Norman Island is home to the famous William Thornton, otherwise known as the Willy T floating bar. But if that’s not your scene, remember that Norman Island is the home to some of the best snorkeling and diving in the BVI at the Indians, the Caves, Angelfish Reef, or Spyglass wall.
Norman island is one of the most popular stop for Virgin Islands yacht charters.
Peter Island, BVI
The Peter Island Resort is a quiet five star getaway worth exploring. It’s a quick walk from Great Harbor, a safe anchorage, that boasts smooth water for waterskiing and wakeboarding. You can also lounge on the beach at Deadman’s Bay, in view of Dead Chest Island, the unfortunate home of 15 pirates all those years ago. (Yo ho ho!)
Peter Island Resort also has a world-class spa on the beach. Appointments fill up quickly, but it’s worth the effort to schedule. If you are looking for a luxury yacht charter with lots of spoiling, check out the fantastic spa on Peter Island.
Jost Van Dyke, BVI
Five miles off the northwest tip of Tortola is an island named after a Dutch pirate, Jost Van Dyke. Known as the "party island" of the BVIs, Jost, as the locals call it, has only 150 residents, but it has six bars (you do the math!). Life on Jost Van Dyke has been described as "one long island-style happy hour".
White Bay is the beach you’ve seen in every postcard in every souvenir shop. Jost Van Dyke is definitely the hammock lovers paradise. A number of restaurant “shacks” line the beaches of Jost Van Dyke, including the Soggy Dollar Bar, and Foxy’s Tamarind Club.
For the more adventurous, take a walk to the Bubbly Pool when the swell is running in, or SCUBA off the point on Green Cay.
This island is probably the most popular stop for yacht charters in the Virgin Islands. Read more about Jost Van Dyke .

Virgin Gorda, BVI
The Baths on Virgin Gorda are consistently rated one of the top 10 destinations in the Caribbean. An amazing blend of stone, sand and palms, the Baths were formed when volcanic eruptions threw boulders the size of your house around like birdseed at a wedding. What was left was a maze that leads you from perfect beach to perfect beach.
The calm waters in North Sound of Virgin Gorda are beautiful no matter what the weather. The Bitter End Yacht Club, Saba Rock, and Leverick Bay Resorts are all worth a visit on your yacht charter.

The Baths (Virgin Gorda)
Anegada is the only “flat” island in the BVI. If was formed by the BVI’s barrier reef, and is set apart from the rest of the islands. When the winds are right, it is well worth the two hour sail from Virgin Gorda. Anegada is almost entirely beach, so you can walk for hours. Anegada is also the place to be for a Caribbean lobster feast.
Not all yacht charters visit Anegada, but it is a recommended stop for explorers who want to get away from it all.. Read more about Anegada.
