The beaches in the British Virgin Islands are touted by locals as some of the most relaxing (or active!) spots in the Caribbean. Many guests are excited to learn that this property is located right on the water and sand, so you won't need to go out of your way to enjoy what makes the region so popular. This location is not located near the more congested parts of the Virgin Islands, meaning those staying at this location will often find themselves alone on the beach, allowing them to relax away from bustling crowds.
Of course, since Bitter End Yacht Club is located right on Brechers Bay, sun bathing is a popular pastime here.
