While weekdays in the islands often blur into the same mundane cycle of sleep, work, dinner, laundry, sleep, as the rest of the world – on the weekends we really try to make up for it! Year-round sunshine and 50+ islands and cays to explore makes for some epic weekend adventures.

This weekend we were fortunate enough to be invited out by Celtic Powerboats for a Holy Trinity tour; hitting three of the BVIs top island attractions in one day – Sandy Spit, White Bay and the Willy-T. All of which are an absolute must if you plan to come and visit.
We met our friendly Captain, Patrick, at his dock in West End and, after a thorough safety brief, we were on our way. Patrick’s boat is immaculate and there was plenty of storage to keep all our belongings dry. The weather conditions were perfect, beautifully flat calm and it made for a super comfortable ride over.
We stopped awhile at Sandy Spit, the picture perfect island idyll, so small that it would only take you 10 minutes to walk the whole way around, (less probably) before moving onto White Bay – home of the Soggy Dollar and the Painkiller cocktail. (Trust me, you don’t want to be getting your Painkiller anywhere else).
We rounded out our day with a visit to the infamous Willy-T, a floating bar and restaurant where clothing is optional and the cocktails are potent! Also great venue for a spot of lunch.
We love any excuse to get out on the water, sailing or powerboat, but you can’t beat a powerboat for getting to visit as many of our islands as possible.
