Now that you’ve found your own personal paradise in the British Virgin Islands, it’s time to travel like an explorer. Scrub Island is full of adventure. But you can’t come all this way without checking a few more things off your list. Gather all the experiences. Collect all the moments. Tell all the stories.
While full moon festivities occur throughout the islands, the Full Moon Party at Trellis Bay is considered one of the BVI’s top monthly cultural events. This renowned family-friendly beach party features live entertainment; previous events have included everything from fire juggling and moko jumbie (stilt walking) dancers to exhibitions by local artists.
You can easily travel to and from Trellis Bay via our private launch, so we encourage you to come out and celebrate in the fun…and maybe do a few howls along the way. While not as convenient, the adventurous can seek a more adult-oriented Full Moon Party located at the infamous Bomba Shack on the West End of Tortola.
While the reefs of the BVI are known for their beauty, sparkling water, and teaming wildlife, over the centuries, they have been treacherous for sea-going ships. The vessels that met with unfortunate fates are now fascinating underwater attractions for divers.
Designated as a national park, The RMS Rhone is an underwater marvel. She was 310 feet long and had a 40-foot beam. The Rhone sank off of Salt Island in 1867, taking with her 123 out of 145 passengers and crew to their watery graves.
Seven miles north of Tortola resting in 75 feet of water, the Chikuzen was a Korean refrigerator ship that sank in 1981. Today she is home to schools of snapper, barracuda, parrot fish, eagle rays, and grouper.
The Rocus was a Greek cargo vessel that ran aground and sank near Anegada. Known as the “Graveyard” or “Bone Wreck,” it resides in 15-35 feet of water and is popular for eerie night dives.
Want to catch the perfect wave? Go to Tortola Island and the surfer’s paradise of Josiah’s Bay, which is considered to have the best in the BVI. At Surf School BVI, you can rent all the surfing equipment you need to hang 10. Never surfed? Gain confidence with lessons, where you’ll learn the basics of paddling, standing up, and controlling your board.
