Like a Grown-up in a Candy Store: Rum, Beach, Rum, Food, Music and Rum in the British Virgin Islands
Sounds like a party, doesn’t it? The British Virgin Islands feature a different culinary experience every weekend from the end of October through the end of November for those that love food, love the Caribbean and dream of the BVI! And guess who is going to be there?? We are!
The BVI is quickly becoming a foodie lovers destination. We’d like to introduce you to another side of the British Virgin Islands, one that involves lobster dishes galore, local and international celebrity Chef meet and greets, and lots of island drinks. They are as serious about sailing as they are their food, so much so that an entire month is devoted to it while kicking off the yacht charter vacation sailing season. With events only steps away from gorgeous beaches, we think it’s a match made in heaven! Pick a week and we’ll find you a charter yacht to get you there! Contact us for info!
The BVI Food Fete is a month-long celebration of culinary flavor spread across a variety of unique island locations along the beautiful shores of the British Virgin Islands including Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Cooper Island.
