Stay in beachfront comfort at the Mango Bay Resort - a beautiful getaway location with all the necessities for an idyllic Caribbean experience
With cloudless blue skies, countless coral gardens and an irresistible tropical climate, a swimming holiday is the perfect way to experience the Caribbean’s stunning British Virgin Islands. These are the islands romantic castaways dream of, untethered from the trappings of ordinary life, wrapped in calm currents and unruffled waters. Don your goggles, duck underwater and you’ll be privy to astounding underwater vistas. Truly, the British Virgin Islands offer spectacular scenery – scattered with pirate-esque bars and sheltered bays - like nowhere else on Earth.
As one of our more challenging swimming destinations, guests on this trip will be able to enjoy the underwater reefs, white-sand coastlines, and fascinating marine life, alongside taking on stronger open sea conditions with our experienced safety crew guiding you all the way.
Our accommodation is at the stylish Mango Bay, situated on a long sandy beach. The bay is naturally protected by a coral reef barrier which gives the resort privacy from larger yachts or charter boats. With plenty of surrounding space to relax and immediate access to the wonderful Caribbean Sea, this is an ideal base for a Caribbean swimming tour you will never forget!
Who is this trip for?
This trip is an ideal option for those looking for a more remote Caribbean swimming holiday. The island-hopping swim itinerary is made up of multiple crossings as well as some coastal swims. Experience of swimming in difficult sea conditions is desirable, as conditions can be challenging, yet very rewarding.
