On the North Shore of Tortola, B.V.I. there sits the #shellmuseum. Cane Garden Bay, Tortola. Edgar’s collection  is vast and he is a fixture along the cane garden road! Stop by and he’ll play a little scratch music, take you on a tour of his museum as well as share some of his very special treasures. “What is life? Sometime you up. Sometime you down!”

In the northernmost area of the British Virgin Islands lies the “sunken island” of Anagada. A beautiful piece of nature with equally beautiful people. If you visit be sure to have an #anagadalobster Potter's By The Sea and take a ride to the north sure to visit Cow Wreck Beach Bar, Anegada, British Virgin Islands Beach Bar, Anegada, British Virgin for delish conch chowder, conch fritters and conch ceviche. The beach is very special. Head east to see the #pinkflamingos and the #conchshellpile then onto Big Bamboo bar. This special spot is the epitome of chill!

En route to Jost Van Dyke we came upon this gem of a spot Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, Autograph Collection. A mini resort complete with Scrubisland SPA manned by lovely Balinese therapists, a kitchen garden and island scarecrow outfitted with classical music to help the veggies grow and a little coffee shop resplendent with tasty morsels. A sweet respite from the seas. Voyage charters btw we love our captain Frikkie!

Two of the most famous beach bars on #jostvandykebvi are #foxysgreatharbor established in 1968 and a staple on BVI float plans since, as well as the #soggydollarbeachbar, famous for the fact that sailors swim from their boats to a gorgeous beach soaking their dollars en route! Also known for originating the #painkiller. A favorite drink in the islands! Suffice it to say much Cruzan Rum is consumed at both spots!  Voyage charters British Virgin Islands

Sailing southwest from Anegada to Jost van Dyke, two little islands #sandycaybvi and #sandyspitbvi pop up. Uninhabited and pristine, they are the perfect examples of why the BVI are referred to as “nature’s little treasures' “. Just around the bend in #littleharborbvi is an amazing family run Caribbean lobster stop called Abes by the Sea @abesbythesearestaurant. Simple, clean and rice and peas come with every meal! Call ahead and order your catch either stuffed, broiled or steamed! Voyage charters

At the far eastern tip of the British Virgin Islands is the Bitter End Yacht Club. Destroyed during hurricane Irma, Saba Rock Resort, Nekker and Moskito Island #sirrichardbranson’s spots, are all undergoing fresh renovations. The Bitter End has long been a party destination for sailors! Since the early 60’s , rum, limbo and music have been it’s calling!  In 1995, son, Brent, won the limbo contest but had to surrender his prize - a bottle of dark Cruzan Rum as he was only 9 years old! Saba Rock was a favorite watering hole for Drinking Dresses inspiration, June Qualls! Sir Richard Branson is rebuilding Nekker and Moskito using sustainable building practices and is on track to be net zero by 2030!  Voyage charters
