The Bit­ter End Yacht Club

LuxeGetaways - - Getaways -

The Bit­ter End Yacht Club’s Re­sort has the most com­pre­hen­sive water­sports pro­gram for guests in the Caribbean. The per­fectly sized har­bor is large enough to host se­ri­ous sail­ing re­gat­tas for pros, yet not so big that begin­ner sailors can­not still safely fine-tune their skills on the water.

Sit­u­ated at the “Bit­ter End” of the is­land Vir­gin Gorda, this re­mote, car-free des­ti­na­tion is so safe that room keys are not re­quired, and it is only reach­able by boat. Guests spend their time swing­ing in ham­mocks on the pri­vate porches of their rus­tic, but up­mar­ket tree-house ac­com­mo­da­tions while be­ing com­pletely “un­plugged” for a few days. How­ever, for those who need to stay con­nected to the out­side world, WiFi is avail­able at The Crawl Pub and The Al­mond Walk Ter­race. The re­sort never seems crowded, even when fully booked dur­ing the hol­i­days. This is largely due to the abun­dance of ex­cur­sions (in­cluded in the daily room rate) where guests leave the prop­erty for vis­its to lo­cal reefs for snor­kel­ing, or even fan­tas­tic spots like the scarcely pop­u­lated Ane­gada Is­land for a lo­cal lob­ster lunch at the fa­mous Big Bam­boo Bar in Loblolly Bay.

While this re­sort is one of the more ex­pen­sive spots to va­ca­tion in the BVI, more bud­get-friendly op­tions do ex­ist. Why not char­ter a sail­boat and live on­board? Pick up a moor­ing rental at The Bit­ter End for $35 per night, which in­cludes free dingy dock space when you come ashore. This al­lows you to en­joy the prop­erty by day with spe­cial ex­cur­sion pack­ages that will save you big bucks, while also giv­ing you the freedom to visit other is­lands at your own pace.
