The Bitter End Yacht Club
North Sound, Virgin Gorda
British Virgin Islands

Distance from airport to hotel, 15 miles (24 kms).  

The Bitter End is a world-renowned watersports resort, as well as being a relaxing environment which enables creative thinking for corporate retreats, multiple activities to enhance team building, and peaceful settings for family reunions, weddings, and honeymoons. The resort stretches one mile on the northern tip of Virgin Gorda, facing the North Sound and the Atlantic Ocean and all 75 shore-side accommodations are scattered throughout tropical gardens and offer panoramic ocean views. The continuous trade winds make sailing conditions almost ideal; they'll also keep your hammock swaying gently and allow cool breezes to flow through your beachfront villa. The reefs that surround the British Virgin Islands provide spectacular snorkeling and diving, as well as scrumptious seafood dishes to choose from on the full American Plan. During the clients' visit, they can select to go on daily-guided excursions or can explore surrounding islands with a picnic in tow on their own. The club fleet of 100 boats satisfies everyone's taste. Windsurfing and kayaking are also popular options.  

Recommended Route:  

• We recommend booking to Tortola's Beef Island airport (EIS) and connecting with the North Sound Express, high-speed ferry for a 30-minute scenic trip direct to Bitter End.
