Diving schools in the Caribbean are a popular attraction for the thousands of tourists who flock to the islands every year, and highly recommended for inexperienced divers. </p> <p>A yacht charter offers you the freedom to choose your favourite vessel and plan with your skipper the best voyage possible. </p> <h2>The BVI Coastline </h2> <p>There are many places to visit, from sandy coastlines to a magnificent cultural heritage. Some of the important and some of our favourite are: </p> <ul><li>Road Town</li><p>The capital of the island, it is located in Tortola, the largest island of the archipelago. It is also the main port on the islands, making it the best place to start your yacht charter as most charter yachts are moored here.</p> <li>Tortola</li><p>A legendary island of pirate folklore, it is a must see Caribbean island due to its unique landscapes and its laid-back, friendly inhabitants. You’ll find it hard to believe what a paradise you’re in when you rent a boat in the British Virgin Islands. </p> <li>Anegada</li><p>Although all of the British Virgin Islands are renowned for their diverse flora and fauna, Anegada is widely regarded as the best for seeing the abundant local wildlife, due to its low population density and it being the archipelago’s only coral island. Anegada is home to a variety of marine species, such as Parrotfish, Needlefish, Sea Bream and Stingray. For those who are interested in the island’s pirate heritage, there are guided diving tours of old Spanish shipwrecks that are scattered around Anegada. </p></ul> <h2>Beaches</h2> <ul><li>The Bath</li><p>Located in Virgin Gorda, it is one of the best in the eastern part of the Caribbean. It looks like a paradise, with white sand and surrounded by blue water. Through its rocky paths it is possible to go from one beach to another and see the wild fauna of the island. </p> <li>Josiah´s Bay</li><p> On the outer part of East End, in Tortola, it is probably the best place in the islands to practice surf. From October to April it is the best time to find the perfect wave. </p> <li>Trunk Bay</li><p>Beach located in St. John: white sand, blue water and goldfish underwater. Surrounded by all kinds of exotic plants, this beach is the perfect place for some days away from the routine on a boat in the BVI. </p></ul> <h2>Natural Parks</h2> <p>Below the surface of the islands’ waters, lie the marvels of the warm Caribbean Sea, such as amazing flora, colourful fish, turtles, manta rays, sharks and dolphins. If you choose to rent a boat in the British Virgin Islands in winter, you’ll also be able to see humpback whales, as they come to mate in Sir Francis Drake Channel at this time of year. Whether you’re just learning to dive, or are an experienced diver, you can’t miss out on this opportunity. There is a huge variety of natural parks in these islands (21!) and some of them are: </p> <ul><li>Cam Bay</li><p>Recognised as national park in 1999, it is located in the northern coast of Camanoe Grande.
