Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands

Scrub Island, British Virgin Islands

Scrub Island British Virgin IslandsScrub Island sits directly across Tortola and is visible from the airport (on Beef Island). To get there, you can take a short ferry ride across the channel from the airport, or arrive by helicopter or, most preferably, on your St. John Boat Charter. Even if you have to swim across to get there–you should, because you have to see this place for yourself. The marina houses some of the world’s biggest, most luxurious yachts, easily accommodating ships of up to 160 feet!

Scrub Island Resort is stunning. This luxury British Virgin Islands hotel features ocean-view guest rooms, suites and private villas with the finest furnishings and spacious balconies with expansive views. Enjoy casual and fine dining, hillside Ixora Spa, a multi-tiered pool and swim-up bar, 24-hour fitness center, onsite dive shop, boutique, gourmet market and cafe. Scrub Island has three very different private beaches. One of them–Honeymoon Beach–is accessible only by kayak, so odds are, you’ll have it all to yourself. All of the beaches share the same gorgeous stretch of sand perfect for major rejuvenation. Scrub Island is also a superb lunch stop, for those who just want to stop by to check out what’s up. The One Shoe Beach Bar and Grill serves great food and blows you away with supreme views of the channel. Sit back on a beach chair and watch the coming and going of planes on Beef Island’s airport from across the channel, all while enjoying authentic Caribbean cuisine.
