After island-hopping over five fun-filled days— exploring the rustic beaches and indulging in its the tropical, luxurious atmosphere—my curiosity has finally been satisfied. I found paradise here, and now need to figure out how to make this a yearly getaway. With stunning views of neighboring islands, the resort overlooks clear blue waters. My ocean front room was spectacular, and equipped with a full kitchen, living room, balcony and luxe bath-and-body products that inspired to me want to stay forever.
Later in the day, I went to North Beach: a small private Ebony island girls retreat with a hiking trail, mini pool and bar. It is lined with mangrove and palm trees blowing in the wind, hermit crabs hanging on branches with powdery white sand.
The next morning, I went to Pavilion Beach, in front of the main resort area, and jolted high in the sky on the mega-sized water trampoline floating in the ocean.
I embraced my inner child while surrounded by the blue ocean water, sailboats and yachts. I later treated myself to a minute massage at Ixora Spa, where my highly skilled therapist put me to sleep which never happens to me. The following day, I returned to Tortola to catch a ferry to Virgin Gorda a. This is the third largest of the British Virgin Islands, named by Christopher Columbus because he thought it resembled the shape of a portly woman lying down.
I checked into Rosewood Little Dix Bay, a boutique resort with a nice mix of luxury, tranquility, and gorgeous beachfront rooms. The inviting azure water called my name and I responded by diving on in. They consist of a labyrinth of house-sized granite boulders that form shallow pools just perfect for swimming. The boulders are positioned on the white sandy beach with some stacked on top of each other, creating a fantasy-like attraction.
My final stop in Virgin Gorda was Biras Creek Resort, situated on a narrow peninsula between two hills.
This rustic-luxe retreat is secluded in nature, and is a true escape from everyday life. With Tocca bath products, an outdoor shower, and no televisions in the rooms, I became one with nature in a plush, tropical environment. I hiked along the trails to view the mangrove trees and cacti while searching for the pigmy gecko, the smallest lizard in the world found only in the BVI.
I was unsuccessful, but I did spy a few iguanas and exotic birds.
I enjoyed exploring the acre property on bicycle, where I met the rescued resident horses that call this place their home. It was packed with yachters, island hoppers and international jet setters mixing and mingling. I spoke to the elderly owner, Bomba, and asked why so many panties and bras decorate the bar.
The Bomba Shack does attract free-spirited tourists of all ages who like to rave. My experience in the British Virgin Islands exceeded all expectations.
