Year-round tropical climate. Balmy breezes. Pristine beaches. Spellbinding waters. Scrub Island is the perfect outdoor playground for water sports, hiking and so much more. Enjoy all there is to do on our private paradise.
The waters in and around Scrub Island are an angler’s dream, especially since we’re the closest marina to the North Drop, the place to go for world record Blue Marlin. You can also fly fish from white sandy beaches for bonefish and tarpon, or head out into the Caribbean for sport fish like mahi-mahi, tuna, and wahoo. In the British Virgin Islands, your catch-of-the-day possibilities are endless.
Just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean your fitness routine needs to take a vacation. Our state-of-the-art fitness center, located in Marina Village, features 15 Life Fitness Signature Series machines, a selection of free weights and workout benches. Open 24 hours a day for your convenience.
See Scrub and the neighboring islands from a different point of view. Explore our 230-acre volcanic island on foot. You’ll experience elevations soaring over 400 feet, panoramic views, and indigenous plant life, including the ixora flower and a variety of cacti. You shouldn’t leave the island without seeing the sunrise from the top of Big Scrub. Be sure to contact your Scrub Island Resort Concierge for directions and details.
The sport of paddle boarding has become increasingly popular over the years and with good reason. It’s a great full body workout that combines strength and cardio and improves balance. Here in the BVI, it’s also a fantastic way to see the waters and marine life surrounding Scrub Island. To try your hand at paddle boarding, go to Pavilion Beach, where we have a number of boards available for our guests.
If you’re going to be in the sailing capital of the world, then going out on a sailboat is a “must do” during your time on Scrub Island. A variety of craft are available for group or private charter, and we can plan your day trip down to the last detail.
Scrub Island Resort has a number of complimentary kayaks available, which are located on our private Pavilion Beach. Simply grab a paddle and enjoy a sea kayaking eco-excursion on the calm turquoise waters between Scrub Island and Great Camanoe, or head to “the couple’s escape” on our secluded Honeymoon Beach, which is accessible only via kayak.
If you’re looking to spend some time underwater in the British Virgin Islands, Scrub Island Resort can take you there. Through Dive BVI, conveniently located in Marina Village, we can arrange one- and two-tank dive trips, private dives, and more. There are also scuba diving instructional courses available, including courses for first timers, full certifications, and advanced diver training.
There are many shallows surrounding Scrub Island that make for great snorkeling, especially off Pavilion Beach and North Beach. We also organize daily group tours, Anegada trips, plus private charters, all centered around snorkelling. Essential gear can be rented from the Dive BVI shop in Marina Village.
If you have the need for speed, speedboats are available for daily hire in the BVI.

They can also recommend a list of islands and activities based on your personal preferences.
These rigid inflatable boats make inter-island exploration a total breeze. Make your way around Scrub Island, Marina Cay, Great Camanoe, Diamond Reef and Trellis Bay at your own pace.
