Bitter End Yacht Club (Christmas and NYE availability)


On Virgin Gorda, an island outpost known for its historical charm and exclusivity, Bitter End Yacht Club is accessible only by sea and has been luring sea-lovers from across the globe for more than 30 years.


Located on the protected waters of North Sound on the lesser-known island of Virgin Gorda (British Virgin Islands), the lush, beachfront resort is a sailing and water sports mecca, thanks to its near perfect year-round sailing conditions, eternal sunshine and crystal-blue waters.


Known for its casual, safe, communal atmosphere and robust activity programs, Bitter End is a favorite destination for couples, families and groups, many of whom return year after year. Guests can learn to sail at Bitter End’s U.S. Sailing-accredited Sailing and Windsurfing School, dive with the world-famous Kilbrides Sunchaser Scuba or take advantage of the resort’s legendary Club fleet, featuring over 100 well-maintained watercraft.
