Looking for a 4 day Intinerary in BVI

Hi,
I''ve just had my first trip to BVI in August, 7 days with Sunsail. It was great and I offer my limited but recent experience.

IMO, you can''t get far that first day so head for Cooper, Peter, or maybe best Marina Cay / Trellis Bay. The Loose Mongose beach bar was fun at Trellis. All those offer good anchorages and are a fairly short sail. Friday morning hit the Baths, best coral, then back around Tortolas Northeast end and head for either Cane Garden Bay or Great Harbor on Jost. There''s not much difference in time to either. The snorkle spot Monkey Point is also on the way if you don''t stay at the Baths too late. Saturday, switch spots stopping at Sandy Cay to play. Sunday, get in some good sailing by heading for Sopers Hole carring on to the Caves, best fish, on Norman. You could then stay in the Bight but IMO, I would go on to Peter or Copper for the last evening. This sets you up well for the return to Roadtown Monday A.M.

I avoid the Bight because of crime / theft problems and its not really very pretty but the Caves were great to snorkle.

With only 4 days, If you visit Virgin Gorda beyond a stop at the Baths, you may not have time for some other great stops. We found the North Sound, Virgin Gorda too hot, too expensive, and full of bugs. My daughter got 17 bites one evening. We didn''t visit Bombas but it will be a taxi ride shortest from either Cane Garden Bay or Sopers Hole.

Good Luck
