The British Virgin Islands –
a beautiful sailing destination The British Virgin Islands, with their white-sand beaches, coral reefs and friendly beach bars, are made up of 60 islands and reefs. When cruising along the Sir Francis Drake Channel, the Sea Cloud calls at two of its stunning natural beauty spots. The tiny islands dotted in the water and warm, gentle breezes make this waterway – named after the famous seafarer – a veritable
paradise for sailors.
“The Baths” – imposing granite formations
It is sometimes easy to think that this is one of nature’s fairy tales: Once upon a time, there was a giant who played with large stone marbles. His favourite playground was in Virgin Gorda, a place now called “The Baths” – a gigantic rock labyrinth made out of circularshaped granite.
Relaxed luxury on St Barths
Ever since billionaire David Rockefeller discovered the island for himself in the 1960s, St Barthélemy has been a favourite destination for the international jetset. You spend some time on one of the glorious beaches, then stroll along the luxurious promenade, and bring the day to a relaxed close enjoying a sundowner while gazing at the impressive private yachts in Gustavia’s harbour.
