Published: Wednesday, January 21, 2015 7:00 am



While we usually associate “winter vacation” with powdery slopes, log cabins, and cozy nights by the fire, there’s a world of adventure that flourishes far beyond these frigid climates. Case in point, The British Virgin Islands, a tropical paradise that thrives with warm sunshine and endless opportunities for fun throughout the year.


There are plenty of ways to enjoy this beloved Caribbean destination, but few compare to chartering your very own catamaran. With spacious cabins and numerous amenities, a catamaran gives you the freedom to discover all the fun the BVI has to offer this winter and beyond.


Full Moon Parties


Full Moon Parties are a unique tradition in the British Virgin Islands. Every month, locals and tourists alike welcome the full moon with beachside celebrations in hotspots like Trellis Bay on Beef Island and the Bomba Shack on Tortola. Wherever you choose, get ready for a full night of live music, dancing, fire displays and plenty of surprises you’ll have to experience to believe. Upcoming Full Moon Parties will take place on February 3rd, March 5th, April 4th, May 3rd, and once every month afterward.


The Baths


The British Virgin Islands flourish with natural beauty and few places show it quite like The Baths on Virgin Gorda. Composed of massive granite boulders—some as large as 40 feet in diameter—this geological wonder is one of the BVI’s most beloved attractions, and once you visit, it’s easy to see why. Filled with secret rock pools and cavernous passages, The Baths provide a stunning setting for everything from snorkeling to walks through the passages that lead to the beach of Devil’s Bay.


Cane Garden Bay


Located on Tortola’s southwest coast, Cane Garden Bay is a beach-lover’s paradise featuring a wide array of bars and restaurants, beautiful sunset views and plenty of opportunities for recreation and relaxation. When the sun starts to set, order a cocktail, put your feet up and toast to a view you could put on a postcard. If that’s not vacationing, we don’t know what is.


Bitter End Yacht Club

Cruise to the North Sound of Virgin Gorda and spend a day at the Bitter End Yacht Club. You’ll enjoy an island retreat rife with delicious dining, shopping, resort accommodations and a cool freshwater pool. Feeling adventurous? Bitter End offers
