Explore the Less Traveled British Virgin Islands
In addition to the larger, more famous islands, the British Virgin Islands' smaller islands offer excellent snorkeling and diving. A visit to Great Dog, George Dog, or West Dog- collectively referred to as the Dog Islands- are a great place to see crabs, lobsters, and fan coral, while nearby Great Camanoe is an excellent place for kids to learn to snorkel in the calm of Cam Bay. Guana Island's Monkey Point is an excellent place to spot sea turtles, who treat the grassy sea floor as a veritable buffet. Ginger Island, located in the middle of the Sir Francis Drake Channel, is home to a popular local dive site called "Alice in Wonderland," as well as "Alice's Backside" where snorkelers and divers can enjoy numerous large, healthy brain coral colonies. The rugged terrain of Fallen Jerusalem, not far from the Baths on Virgin Gorda, is an exciting destination for divers eager to explore underwater caves and tunnels, and spot dozens of nocturnal fish.
For day trippers and term charterers who want to experience fun and luxury on dry land, visit the high-end resorts on Nanny Cay and Scrub Island. Not only do these islands have high-end resorts with all of the expected amenities, but they also have deep water marinas with shore power, making both resorts excellent overnight choices for boaters. Another great choice for anyone visiting the BVI by boat is the beach bar on Prickly Pear. Prickly Pear is an uninhabited island that's just a short dinghy ride from the famed Bitter End Yacht Club and Saba Rock in Virgin Gorda's North Sound. And no charter or day trip to the BVI is complete without a visit to the quintessential Pusser's on Marina Cay.
