Guest Guide Island Hopping
Long Bay is close to harbors at Soper’s Hole and Nanny Cay, making it the perfect starting place for a day trip around the islands. All of the islands in the British Virgin Islands are stunning, but a few of our favorites are below.
VIRGIN GORDA The Baths National Park
JOST VAN DYKE Come for the hiking and views, stay for the iconic beach bars
SANDY SPIT AND SANDY CAY Pretend you’re a castaway on these remote beaches
NORMAN ISLAND Great spots for snorkeling and diving
PETER ISLAND Pristine beaches and hiking
COOPER ISLAND Visit the Beach Club for its brewery and rum bar
ANEGADA This island is further away, but well worth the travel time.
Take a boat or a quick hopper plane and spend the day at beautiful beaches
like Cow Wreck Bay, ride horses on the sand, and eat local lobster and conch.
Our hotel staff can help set up your perfect day trip (or overnight trip!) around the islands. Our Long Bay speed boat “Strange Crossings” is available to rent with a captain for a full or half day managed by http://islandtimewatertaxi.com/. We also partner with local charter companies to offer you boats for rent with or without a captain. Choose from a speed boat, sailboat, or catamaran, and go with a group or on a private tour and build your own itinerary. You can also hop on an inter-island ferry to Jost Van Dyke, Cooper, Norman, Peter, and Virgin Gorda. Visit https://www.bvitourism.com/inter-island-ferries to see ferry schedules.
