With over 50 idyllic isles to explore, the British Virgin Islands are perfect for sun-worshippers and water-lovers alike. Protected bays and coves offer some of the world’s most breathtaking beaches, where you can spend your holiday relaxing on soft sands, swinging in hammocks, swimming with tropical sea life and searching for shipwrecks. Azure offers a range of luxury hotels in BVI, providing you with the perfect base from which to explore the stunning scenery and vibrant nightlife.
The British Virgin Islands are home to an array of picture-perfect beaches, each with its own unique charm and attributes. For leisurely walks on a footprint-free sand, a trip to Savannah Bay offers over a mile of pristine shoreline with stunning ocean views. The crystal clear water of Spring Bay is ideal for snorkelling, with majestic boulders creating a natural seawater pool teeming with marine life. Take a trip to Norman Island, said to have been the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Treasure Island’, or go for a heart-thumping drive down hairpin bends to reach the palm-fringed Brewers Bay, a secluded retreat with a real away-from-it-all feel.
In and on the water
Stories of pirates and buccaneers are abound in the British Virgin Islands, and there’s plenty of opportunities to discover age-old shipwrecks. RMS Rhone has been stranded in the waters of Salt Island since 1867 and can be explored by divers and snorkelers of all levels of ability. For the more experienced in the water, the 250-foot long shipwreck Chikuzen is guarded by bull-sharks, reef-sharks and lemon-sharks, and offers a golden opportunity to see these underwater wonders up close. Alice in Wonderland, just off Ginger Island, is the place to see some of the most beautiful coral formations the BVI have to offer. Meanwhile, the rocky formations known as ‘The Indians’ at Pelican Island majestically rise out of the sea and are home to a wide variety of rainbow-coloured fish.
If you prefer to be on top of the water, paddle your own kayak on a sea safari through the mysterious mangrove forests on Beef Island, with the chance to see stingrays, turtles, barracuda and baby sharks. Alternatively, try your hand at kite-surfing on Virgin Gorda and Anegada, where the trade winds are perfect for picking up a hair-raising speed.
The BVI are famous for relaxed hospitality and genial get-togethers. Head to one of the beach bars and try the famous Painkiller cocktail - a heady mix of local rum, coconut, tropical fruit juice and nutmeg. If you’re out for an evening stroll, stop off at a local stall vendor who will happily chop the top off a coconut for you to enjoy the refreshing milk inside - and even add a splash of rum if you desire. Food-wise, lobster is a favourite dish across the islands and is usually served barbecued with the chef’s secret blend of herbs and spices.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
