With white sandy beaches, azure waters, and dreamy sunshine, it is no wonder that Virgin Islands are one of the most popular honeymoon hot spots. The dramatic shape of the British Virgin Island’s third largest island, Virgin Gorda, reminded Christopher Columbus of a reclining woman, or “Fat Virgin,” inspiring its name. Measuring 8 ½ square miles, Virgin Gorda entices travelers with its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages and luxury resorts and villas. Natural beauty is in abundance and accessible via indigenous plant-lined trails, nature sanctuaries and natural wonders of our protected national parks. Couples can hike to the island’s high point, Gorda Peak, for a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding islands.
Tropical Weather All Year Long
For a quintessential Caribbean honeymoon, stroll or swim at the unspoiled beaches at Savannah Bay, Pond Bay, Devil’s Bay, Mahoe Bay or Spring Bay. Because the British Virgin Islands enjoy a warm tropical climate, your Virgin Gorda travel plans don’t need to account for weather—it’s beautiful year-round. The average highs are between 79°F and 87°F, and the lows never dip below the mid-60s. For this reason, newlyweds often escape to Virgin Gorda in the winter, when it’s cold back home.
