Cómo Moverse

En las Islas Vírgenes Británicas, encontrará los ingredientes para una gran aventura, todo ello en estrecha proximidad. Muévase entre las islas en avión o barco, atranque en un club de yates, en una boya de amarre (mooring) o detrás del timón para ver a donde el espíritu isleño lo lleva.
Clubes de Yates
Las Islas Vírgenes Británicas han sido proclamada como “la capital del deporte de vela del Caribe”. Con las aguas protegidas dentro del Canal Sir Francis Drake, abundantes anclajes seguros, y con temperaturas promedio en los 80 grados durante el día, atemperadas por los vientos alisios, no es sorprendente que las BVI es la anfitriona de clubes de yates que son considerados algunos de los mejores en el Caribe. Los siguientes clubes de yates son centros para la náutica, el conocimiento marino, el espíritu deportivo, facilidades para entrenamiento y, por supuesto, reuniones sociales.
