And the luxury yachts! They are bringing their A-game with gourmet foods to meet your palate. They will take care of your every need and show you all the unique places these islands have to offer. Why wouldn’t you want to take a luxury yacht vacation and see all the hidden gems of the islands?

The Islands are banding together in an effort in “Going Green” Composting.  Using less or no plastic and bringing their own bags for shopping. They are also using natural cleaning products and so much more.

An app called Green VI Recycle has been designed to detail all recycling drop off points. They also provide top tips on reducing our waste.

In addition to these efforts, 4Ocean has been reaching oceans all over the world, cleaning the waters of its trash. Each item purchased from their store is a pound of waste that, in turn, goes back into cleaning more ocean waters.

Hopping New Beach Bars and Old Favorite Hot Spots

Island hopping and looking for cool beach bars? Check out the Taco Bar -“Lime Out” Solar powered and environmentally friendly near St John Island. (Currently closed, January 2021 with licensing issues. We will let you know when it is worked out!)

Swim or motor over to your taco or island fusion drink while sitting on a submerged bar stool. The only thing better than getting a tasty taco and drink is getting it on Taco Tuesday in the Virgin Islands!

Good news for the Virgin Islands, the famous Willy T’s moved to its original spot at Norman Island. It had been relocated to Peter Island.  It belongs to the famous BIGHT of Norman Island.

Willy T’s has been around for more than 20 years. It has given patrons old and new a place to have a great time.

Willy T’s version # 2, which landed on Norman Island, is now going to be a new dive site. Willy T’s is one of the projects recently taken on by BEYOND THE REEF. It has been salvaged, cleaned and turned into a wild underwater scene of a Pirate Ship in July 2019

“Beyond the Reef” is currently working on turning an old airplane into a giant shark to sink. We are going to have more creative and attractive underwater “fish attractor devices” from this new NGO company.

Kelly’s Land and Sea Tours
 Is it a plane or a shark?

Don’t Forget to Visit Anegada

#1 on Trip Advisor’s “ Things to do on Anegada” on your Charter is Kelly’s Land and Sea Tours. Take a fast boat for you or your private group from the main anchorage over to Conch Mountain. On your way there, you will skim over the very shallow clear water, often seeing baby sharks, stingrays, and flamingoes.

Once you arrive, you can see an impressive conch midden that goes back to ancient times. Hundreds of thousands of conch shells piled up by fishermen over the millennia. Think way back to the Arawak and Carib Indian days.

There is no cell service out on Horseshoe Reef. You feel like you have gone back thousands of years yourself, just for a few hours.

After you marvel at the conch shells, go for a snorkel and see if you can help Kelly find and bring back Lobster and Conch and get your lesson on how to clean them all. If it is the right season, you will be able to keep your catch.

“Trust me; this will be one of the highlights of your trip.”

If you have chartered a luxury yacht charter, they may have the ability to do part of this tour themselves. However, only belongers can dive for lobsters with you, so Kelly may be your man if you are keen on that aspect.

Award-winning Virgin Islands Cuisine Features Local Flavors

Spanish Town Virgin Gorda has a new Cafe. You can enjoy the flavors of the Dominican Republic with daily specials. A recent guest commented, ‘Excellent Dominican Gastronomy, an excellent deal I loved the family atmosphere full of love and enthusiasm.’

New restaurants abound on the main island of Tortola.

Try the Rooftop by Brandywine Bay. Set on the penthouse of a nondescript commercial building in the heart of town. You may miss it as it is not well signed, although there is an A-board outside. Just look up for the top floor that has a canopy over it and start walking that way.

Rooftop by Brandywine Bay has casual but elegant dining, inspired by French and local cuisine. Enjoy this dining with a magnificent view of the entire area. This area includes the waterfront with the sailboats and ships traveling in and out of Road Harbour. I loved the cream of carrot soup!

Taste of India is in the heart of Roadtown. They offer a large selection of traditional and Authentic Indian cuisine at a reasonable rate. If you are looking for Vegan food, consider this one of your best options in town.

Fantasia by Giorgio’s and Fantasias Wine Bar. Stop in downstairs for a glass of wine in air-conditioned comfort. Then make your way upstairs for their bistro, street food, with a definite Italian bend.
