Several weeks ago, Hurricanes Irma and Maria struck the British Virgin Islands. They damaged or destroyed over 700 ships at the popular Caribbean destination. But life is returning—and the yachtsmen with it.
You’ll have seen the hurricane on live news broadcasts. What isn’t visible is the weeks and weeks of exhausting work that follows when the hurricane leaves and the elements subside. It is at this stage when life returns to the British Virgin Islands. Locally-based B.V.I. Yacht Sales helps the owners of damaged ships and the yachtsmen who want to come here.
The deforestation work has progressed so much that it is possible to live there again: in many places electricity is working, water is flowing, and roads are being repaired. Beach bars and grocery stores are slowly opening one by one. And the hills are growing green again.
Only a few people have stayed there—those who love it and call it home. The British Virgin Islands now has the same atmosphere that you could have experienced 30 years ago. So there is no reason to choose anywhere else, or in other words: now is the time to go! Even the sea is deserted and you will experience the Caribbean as you’ve never known.
