Today, the pirates are no more. But travelers from all
over the world still come to this place in the Caribbean to
search for the little treasures which nature has hidden here.
And be it a lazy afternoon spent swimming and snorkeling off
your own private motor yacht, or a barefoot walk along some
deserted palm fringed beach, you are sure to leave the British
Virgin Islands with memories to treasure.

Lying just over a thousand miles from the equator, the British
Virgin Islands enjoy a balmy sub-tropical climate caressed by
constant trade winds. Temperatures rarely drop below 77F in the
winter or rise above 90F in the summer. The night temperatures
vary by only 10F.
The warm clear waters offer superb conditions for all water activities,
while the many unspoiled beaches make a perfect setting for exploring,
romance or relaxation.
year is characterized as follows:
While the US Mainland and much of Europe is locked in the icy
grip of winter, the BVI enjoys fresh trade winds and abundant
sunshine. Short localized rain showers may pass over us but these
rarely last for more than 30 minutes. Christmas and New Year are
the busiest weeks of the season and the BVI high season is Christmas
Spring, Summer and Fall
From the middle of April the winter trade winds begin to moderate
and we experience a slow increase in daytime temperatures rarely
exceeding 90F even in the hottest months of August and September.
There is the chance of the occasional afternoon or nighttime showers
and the islands take on a fresh green tropical lushness that heralds
the arrival of a new season. The Summer and Fall bring on one
of our most favorite times of years. There is a gradual reduction
in the number of visitors to the islands. Finding a quiet anchorage
gets even easier and the snorkeling and diving are fabulous with
reduced wave action.
