British Virgin Islands Honeymoons
Discovered by Christopher Columbus, this former pirates’ haven offers newlyweds a perfect luxury British Virgin Islands honeymoon experience. Made up of over 40 volcanic islands, including Norman Island (thought to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island), the British Virgin Islands are wonderfully sleepy and slow-paced. The majority of islands are nothing more than rocky outcrops or spits of sand, with only around 15 inhabited, including Virgin Gorda, Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and Peter Island.
Home to some of the world’s best resorts, the British Virgin Islands are a fantastic choice for honeymooners looking to combine exclusivity and luxury with a remote, unspoiled location. Tortola may be the largest island, but Virgin Gorda is most geared up to couples. Covering an area of around eight miles, this lush island of gently undulating hills, spectacular beaches and natural rock formations such as the famous Baths National Park is a fabulous honeymoon destination. Moreover, the island is home to a scattering of world-class resorts, well spaced out from one another and offering couples the ultimate in romantic relaxation. It's an ideal spot for your luxury British Virgin Islands honeymoon.
A wonderful place for sailing, swimming, snorkelling and diving, the British Virgin Islands are perfect for water-loving couples. The waters around the islands offer some of the best dive sites in the Caribbean and due to the islands’ location east of Puerto Rico the region enjoys warm, tropical weather that’s perfect for sunbathing.
Relatively remote and hard to reach (there are no direct flights from the US or UK), the British Virgin Islands feel like a special secret to those who visit. Although part of the same archipelago, the BVI have a very different feel to the neighbouring US Virgin Islands and are quieter, less developed and less glitzy. If you’re looking for a slow-paced luxury honeymoon in the BVIs, with idyllic surroundings, then it might just be the choice for you.
