Soper's Hole

Soper's Hole

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Rows of gleaming white yachts and sailboats make it clear that Soper’s Hole in Tortola is one of the most sophisticated places in the Caribbean to tie up your boat. Here, the water’s edge is lined with boutiques and restaurants in whitewashed houses; above, storied green mountains rise up in the distance. At sidewalk cafes, haute sailors swap stories over fresh fish and white wine; and watch the pink and orange sunset before heading back out to sea.

Seven Mile Beach

Seven Mile Beach

Seven Mile Beach aka West Bay Beach has been called one of the finest beaches in the Caribbean. This wonderful white-sand beach stretches from George Town to Long Point. Its sandy bottom and calm, clear water make it an ideal spot for families with small children. Seven Mile Beach is great for snorkeling and other watersports. If you’re looking for a spot to relax in silence, then steer clear of the areas located near the big resorts if you’re looking for a spot to relax and unwind in silence. These areas tend to be crowded. 960 1280
