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 is 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, thus making it an exciting stop for yacht charters. 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. More info on Norman Island.
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.
Peter Island Resort also has a world-class spa on the beach. Appointments fill up quickly, but it’s worth the effort to schedule. Peter Island is a must stop for all luxury yacht charters in the Virgin Islands. More info on Peter Island.
Salt Island , BVI
Salt Island was named for its salt ponds, but is most famous as the location of a world-renowned shipwreck. On the island itself, island tours are available to see the salt ponds from the settlement at Salt Island Bay. These ponds were once an important source of salt for the British Royal Navy.
The Wreck of The Rhone is one of the most famous dive sites in the world and a must stop for all diving charters. Located off Salt Island, the R.M.S Rhone (Royal Mail Steamer) went down in 1867 in a hurricane. More info on Salt Island.

Cooper Island , BVI
Mostly uninhabited Cooper Island is surrounded by coral reefs and dive sites.
There are white sand beaches, no roads and only four privately owned properties on the island, plus the small beach club resort.
You will see coconut palms, bougainvillea, frangipani, yucca, orchids and other exotic plants on the island and a nice variety of birds. More info on Cooper Island.
Dead Chest , BVI
Dead Chest Island is an uninhabited National Park.
According to legend, Dead Chest Island got its name when the notorious Blackbeard put 15 men ashore on this island after a mutiny with only a bottle of rum. This led to the famous pirate song: "15 men on a dead man's chest, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum”.
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.
Jost Van Dyke will make you want to quit your job and move to the Virgin Islands. This island is one of the favorite stops for most yacht charters in the Virgin Islands. More info on 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 look. More info on Virgin Gorda.
The Baths (Virgin Gorda)
This is it… the end of the world. If you want to escape, Anegada is for you.
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. More info on Anegada.
And these are only a few of the Virgin Islands you can visit on yacht charters.
With all the natural beauty and great weather year around, the Virgin Islands are one of the world's top destinations for yacht charters and sailing.
