Recently many of our readers have been thinking of a beautiful place to spend their vacations this winter. Here's a solution to the long, cold days of winter. What about a fully crewed luxury charter on a private motor yacht or catamaran sailboat and visiting a series of beautiful islands spread out over a 95,000 square miles, with the largest island of this territory being Tortola and these islands are more commonly known as the British Virgin Islands. (BVI).
This island paradises are considered to be heaven on earth for the sophisticated traveler with lush multi-hued greens & yellows dotting both small and large islands alike are surrounded by deep blue and aquamarine waters. The weather in the British Virgin Islands is ideal with an average summer temperatures of 86 degrees with beautiful sunshine making your catamaran sailing or private yacht vacations just perfect. Moreover these islands are famous for their spectacular underwater landscapes, 100's of species of fish, lobsters, dolphins, conch and turtles.
Some of the more famous foods of the BVIs are fungi and callaloo with wild growing local fruits are sugar apple, mango, papaya, soursop, genip, sea grapes and even tamarind. The commonly spoken languages of the BVI are English and Spanish. Last year when I visited I found the people of these islands also very cooperative, charming, friendly and loving, right on my first day I have decided to come back to the British Virgin Islands for my next year's vacation.
But this is not all, if you are a water, fun and sun enthusiast, this is the vacation place for you. The BVIs are a hot spot for both power & catamaran sailing charters. Because of calm waters and steady breezes, providing some of the best sailing conditions in the Caribbean, one of the more famous activities of the region is sailing.
Many sailing events are held in the waters of these islands, the largest of which is a week-long series of races called the Spring Regatta. Tourists come from all over the world to BVI just to experience and taste the fun of power boats and catamaran sailboats.
