14 Days Yacht Charter Itinerary in the American and British Virgin Islands

Virgin Islands Boat Itinerary: Discover this suggestive archipelago divided between the United States and the United Kingdom!

The Virgin Islands are an extraordinary archipelago that marks the border between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Very close from a geographical point of view, they are instead politically divided: one part depends on the United States while the other on the United Kingdom. The Virgin Islands are attended by sailing lovers from all over the world who find here the ideal conditions to practice this sport throughout the year. The presence of trade winds guarantees acceptable temperatures for most of the seasons.

Discover the unspoiled beauties of these islands that offer you adventure, relaxation, and fun with an endless series of activities for leisure and fun both in and out of the water!



The British Virgin Islands (BVIs)

This archipelago, as you can easily guess by its name, is part of the overseas territories of the United Kingdom and, however, the local currency is not the British pound but the US dollar. It is not possible to land here directly with a scheduled flight but you need to stop in a neighboring state such as Puerto Rico or Antigua and there take a charter flight.

The largest and most populous of the islands is Tortola which is also home to the capital, Road Town. Second, in size, we find Virgin Gorda on which is located the most famous beach of the archipelago, The Baths. It is a beach characterized by the presence of large granite blocks that meet each other creating tunnels, arches, and panoramic caves open to the sea.

The United States Virgin Islands (USVI)

The US Virgin Islands are located in the stretch of the Caribbean Sea that separates the island of Puerto Rico from the British Virgin Islands, northwest of Leeward Islands.

The archipelago consists of about twenty volcanic origin islands, but just four are open to international tourism. Saint Croix, the largest and southernmost island, completely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. Saint John, smaller and almost entirely declared as a National Park. Saint Thomas, home to the capital, Charlotte Amalie, the Caribbean’s main cruise port. Water Island, a wild islet along the St. Thomas coasts.

The USVI is easily accessible by air. There are two main airports: Henry E. Rohlsen International Airport in Saint Croix and Cyril E. King International Airport, located a few kilometers from the center of Charlotte Amalie in Saint Thomas.

Both offer direct flights to and from the United States and the Caribbean islands while for those arriving from Europe or other countries it is necessary to make at least a stopover.
