What's Located Around Peter Island Resort & Spa

Sometimes choosing a hotel located near a nice beach can guarantee your family has a fun, fulfilling trip while in the British Virgin Islands.

Luckily, Peter Island Resort & Spa is situated directly on the waterfront, so you won't need to travel far to try a few beach activities. Being able to spend a day in an area lacking lots of people around makes a difference in your beach going experience. This beach has that type of environment because it is located outside of the more populated parts of the Virgin Islands.
