BVI Continues on its Road to Recovery

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is expecting a strong tourism rebound following pandemic-related closures and solid recovery efforts from the devastating 2017 hurricanes.

In addition to welcoming refreshed accommodations and attractions, tourism officials in the British overseas territory are gearing up for the celebration of the 10th edition of the “Anegada Lobster Festival” over the U.S. Thanksgiving holidays (November 25-27, 2022), and 2023 marks the 50th edition of the “BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival,” one of the Caribbean’s popular annual racing events. Also marking its golden anniversary next year is the re-launched Bitter End Yacht Club, which will unveil a range of exciting developments.

Among notable accommodation updates in the British Virgin Islands, The Inn at Cornucopia has recently reopened on Virgin Gorda.

Also this fall, Jost Van Dyke will welcome The Hideout in White Bay. The new seven-villa resort is touted to be the island’s first luxury boutique resort situated on one of the Caribbean’s well-known beaches. 

The Long Bay Beach Resort on Tortola recently opened four of its 10 new Hillside Suites. The remaining six suites are expected to be opened in October.

Also, the Oil Nut Bay on Virgin Gorda will be renovating two of its dining outlets—the oceanfront Beach Club, which has swimming pools and offers lounging; and The Pavillion, which is an intimate place with its fire pit and specialty rum bar.

Oil Nut Bay’s helipad is in the process of approval to become an international airport, allowing for international air arrivals directly to the resort.
