The BVI comes to life for the new season
A few weeks ago, we shared how we do the low season in the BVI, highlighting the natural beauty and In-Villa experiences that can be enjoyed year-round.
Just like that, we are about to enter the start of a new season. Restaurants start opening, charter companies prepare to put their boats back into the water and hotels and villas start booking up.
Here are our top 4 unmissable activities to do in the new season:
The only way to truly experience the natural beauty of the British Virgin Islands is on the water. We have a variety of charter partners for small to large groups depending on what you’re looking for. Whether it’s a day trip to Anegada, Norman Island or a cruise around North Sound for bar hopping- we can do it all!
Your day out can also include snorkeling, diving, fishing and other water-sport activities. All you need to do is let us know what you’re looking to experience on your day trip and we’ll handle the rest.
Although the beachside restaurant has kept its doors open throughout the BVI summer, CocoMaya is now back open 5 days a week with their resident DJ, James Park back on the decks on Friday and Saturday nights. A quick trip on the daily ferry or a private charter trip from Tortola makes it easily accessible for your party, whether you’re travelling with friends or family.
The unique dining establishment offers delectable Mexican Asian fusion cuisine and masterfully crafted signature cocktails, as well as being home to one of the best spots in the BVI to take in a breath-taking sunset. CocoMaya truly comes to life at night when the sun sets and the music grows louder - we’ll be disappointed if you aren’t dancing barefoot in the sand by the end of the night. It’s an unforgettable experience that we would recommend, to every one of our guests.
A day trip to Cooper Island
Cooper Island reopens its beach resort on the 20th October and offers so much more than just a resort.
Bonita can arrange for a private charter to take you over for an adventurous and indulgent day starting off with some of the best coffee in the BVI and a browse around the Sea Grape Boutique, where you can treat yourself to some of the best brands in resort and swimwear available to the BVI community.
The pièce de résistance is their very own on-island Diving School. The school caters from complete beginners to experienced underwater enthusiasts, offering dives for a half or full day of adventure. If you aren’t into diving, there are still plenty of watersport activities to get lost in including kayaking and paddle-boarding around the surrounding waters.
Afternoons at Cooper Island involve lunch, cocktails, wine and reminiscing about the morning's activities. The new menu includes fresh local produce and seafood, as well as light bites and salads all the way to mouth-watering burgers and racks of ribs - you will not be left hungry.
You can’t leave Cooper Island without ending the day with a drink from the Rum Bar - housing over 280 rums from around the world and house-infused rums exclusive to the island.
Once you’ve enjoyed a rum (or two!), your charter captain will escort you back to Tortola where a transfer will be waiting to take you back to your villa where you can relax and unwind.
We hope we’ve inspired you with the excitement that the new season will bring. Explore our villas and extensive list of activities and we can’t wait to welcome you to the BVI soon!
