Re: bvi less "touristy" places

If you want less touristy try the Spanish Virgin Islands.

Re: bvi less "touristy" places

I have never had a problem getting a mooring in Little Harbor, Jost Van Dyke--even in February.

Sydney's Peace and Love restaurant is there (though I heard Sydney passed away in the last year), and if you want the madness of Foxy's you can take a taxi over pretty inexpensively (if the entire crew decides to go).

I agree with Cooper Island.

Re: bvi less "touristy" places

Many good ideas above! Places without mooring balls are somtimes less crowded.

Manchioneels Bay - Little Jost van Dyke (great snorkeling), West side of Prickly Pear - Gorda Sound, Deadman's Bay - Peter Island, Benures Bay - Norman Island, Haulover Bay - Cooper Island and Anegada (as many boats resrtcted from going there).

But don't miss all the touristy places, we don't!

Re: BVI: Less "Touristy" Places

As I look out from my verandah (deck - I think some people call them) on Tortola, I count 32 yachts in Manchioneel Bay (Cooper), 1 in the Salt Is anchorage, 4 in Deadman's Bay (Peter) (which is a bit naughty as the charter companies dont recommend it as an overnighter) and 12 in Great Hrbour (Peter). I cant quite see Little Harbour, Peter as there's a Flamboyant Tree in the way. We've just finished the BVI Spring Regatta and after a middlingly late Easter, people will be thinking of getting out of here before the start of the hurricane season. So, really, May is normally a super time to be sailing around here.

I'd be on the water myself but unfortunately have to deliver a catamaran from the Seychelles to Brisbane so I'll be "off station" for a couple of months.

Enjoy, Tony
