5 Secrets of the BVI

The British Virgin Islands are “nature’s little secrets.” Discover five that you could explore for yourself while on your next charter trip.

  1. 1780 Lower Estate Sugar Works

For the history buffs or those who want to learn more about the BVI’s past, the 1780 Lower Estate Sugar House is a hidden gem. The relatively unknown museum on Tortola is full of artifacts and exhibits showcasing over a century of history in the BVI.

  1. Explore Virgin Gorda by Land

If you need a break from exploring the waters, hire a taxi or rent a Jeep to enjoy the ultimate Caribbean adventure on Virgin Gorda. With majestic views and delicious restaurants, the picturesque island will provide unforgettable memories.

  1. Find Spotted Eagle Rays

The consistently warm waters of the BVI make for a perfect home for spotted eagle rays. The elusive rays can be found in Benures Bay on the northern side of Norman Island. Snorkelers and divers can explore this location and see squid, tarpon, turtles, and other types of rays.


  1. Fish the South Drop

While most people head to the North Drop off Anegada for some great fishing, the local experts say that the South Drop is the place to go. With clear waters and fish that are eager to bite, you’re sure to reel in something memorable.


  1. Paddle Through Hans Creek

On a flat day, your paddleboard can be your best friend! Take a journey through the largest remaining pristine mangrove-forest network in the BVI: Hans Creek. Only a few minutes away from Trellis Bay, Surf School BVI allows you to meander through the water, catching glimpses of sea birds, turtles, barracuda, bonefish, and shark pups.
