Bitter (Sweet) End Page 2


The Bitter End Yacht Club is well-suited for a wide range of boaters.

Getting there: The easiest way to the BVIs from the United States is through San Juan, Puerto Rico. A number of airlines fly between there and Tortola. From Tortola, it’s a $30 ferry ride to the Bitter End. Note: There is a $20 per-person departure tax when leaving the BVIs by air or $5 when leaving by sea.

Food: The Bitter End Yacht Club has three on-site restaurants, so visitors have a number of dining options, including theme-buffet dinners with live music, to ensure the vacation fun continues long after the sun goes down.

What to do: A visit to the Bitter End can be as action-packed or as relaxed as you’d like; it all depends on your mood. The resort has Hobbie Cats, Sunfish, and Boston Whalers available for rent; can arrange sportfishing charters or snorkeling trips to the nearby islands; offers sailing lessons for kids; and more. Anyone who visits should spend a morning or an afternoon exploring the rock formations or snorkeling among the grottos and crystal pools at the world-famous geological wonder known as The Baths; the Bitter End Yacht Club can provide a picnic lunch.
