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.
Needless to say, since Peter Island Resort & Spa is located directly on Deadman's Bay, sun bathing is a popular pastime at this property. On the north side of Peter Island, this bay beach is popular because of the wonderfully soft sand and clear ocean floor for great swimming. This is a quintessential Caribbean beach with turquoise waters and white sand that dazzles. For travelers who are willing to venture off site, its not difficult to find another beach to experience.
