Discover Romantic Peter Island
The British Virgin Islands are home to many romantic destinations; one in particular is Peter Island. Reachable only by boat or chopper, you’re guaranteed a peaceful holiday and a romantic time on this secluded island. The fifth largest of the 60 islands that comprise the BVI, Peter Island offers gorgeous beaches, turquoise clear waters and a one of a kind adventure.
Virgin Islands Day Charter and helicopters will take you to Peter Island from St. Thomas, USVI or from Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. If you come as a guest of the island’s exotic resort, Peter Island Resort & Spa, they’ll arrange your arrival from Tortola. If staying at Peter Island Resort & Spa isn’t on your agenda, consider visiting the resort and the island on a Virgin Islands day charter. A Virgin Islands day charter will take you to the different stunning beaches and snorkeling sites that the island is famous for.
Most bays found on Peter Island, such as Deadman’s Bay, are protected, so expect calm waters in most of the bays you visit. With a one mile shoreline, Deadman’s Bay is huge. Several different beaches are situated on the bay’s long stretch of soft white sand along with lunch bars and grills, so throw the anchor and lounge at any one of them, enjoying stunning views and delicious Caribbean dishes.
Little Deadman’s Beach is a mooring site for boats, so if you’re looking for dramatic scenery for the photos you take, this is a good place for it. Another famous beach, Honeymoon Beach, is found almost at the tip of the bay’s peninsula. The beach is secluded and is perfect for couples looking for a romantic time alone.
Watersports activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and paddleboarding are perfect in Deadman’s Bay. Enough gentle wind passes through the calm and protected bay; this creates an environment ideal for beginners learning to windsurf or paddleboard. If you’re looking for rolling surf and waves, best head to Big Reef bay on the windward side of the island.
Hiking and biking trails are available throughout the island. These trails lead you to spots that have amazing overlooking view of different beaches, bays and other islands. Other sights to expect on these trails are the different tropical flowers and animals indigenous to the island.
Peter Island offers more than just a romantic getaway. This private island allows you to experience nature at its finest; idyllic bays, lovely beaches and tropical flora and fauna. If you’re not staying at Peter Island Resort & and Spa, the best way to see Peter Island, and many other exciting Virgin Islands destinations, is on a Virgin Islands day boat charter.
