Pain Killers - not the type you take for that headache that just won’t budge - but the local cocktail - this sums up the British Virgin Islands. The heady mix of the smooth, suave, cream of coconut. The sweet and refreshing mix of pineapple and orange juice. A sprinkle of unadulterated nuttiness from the nutmeg. Then last but not least Pusser's Rum - where two, three or maybe four ounces are added - depending on the desired intensity.
This BVIs comprises 60 islands, islets and cays and can be reached by a short 30 minute air hope from Antigua. From the lush hills and yachtie swooning Virgin Gorda, to the impossibly beautiful ‘unplugged’ island of Anegada, seeming to float like a shell in a crystal seas. And who can resist little Jost Van Dyke, the ‘barefoot island’ where there are fewer than 300 inhabitants? This British Overseas Territory will quite literally knock your socks off.
With steady trade winds, calm currents, protected bays and pirate-ship bars, this is one of the world's sailing hot spots with the best conditions between November - May. Things can get pretty lively around the BVI Spring Regatta so for those seeking peace and quiet the end of March/beginning of April are best avoided.
You don’t need to stay on a boat to enjoy the BVIs. Hidden away are several luxurious hotels accessed by boat, such as Peter Island and Biras Creek. There is also Richard Branson’s Necker Island, normally to be rented as a whole, but also offering some weeks when you can book just a room.
The islands have a quirky edge, and despite all the fancy boats and celebrity visitors, they remain relatively undeveloped.
