How To Get to the British Virgin Islands (BVI)

Due to the small size of the BVI’s main airport, the islands have been kept wonderfully preserved, earning them the name “Nature’s Little Secrets.”  This is because there are no direct, long haul flights from the US or Europe.  However, there are many, simple ways to get to the British Virgin Islands to begin your boat charter adventure with Virgin Motor Yachts!  If your starting point isn’t listed below, or if you have any questions give our customer service team a call and we would be happy to help you!
