Between November and March, the surf is up, so bring your boards or hire locally and head for Apple Bay or Capoons Bay, only 5 minutes drive from Alfresco Villa. For dinghy sailing, kayaking and windsurfing, Cane Garden Bay is only 15 minutes drive away. The snorkelling is great at nearby Smugglers Cove and if you are a diver or wish to learn, there is an excellent dive facility at Nanny Cay which is 10 minutes drive. If you would like to enjoy a relaxing Spa treatment following a day of activity, visit the Sugar Mill’s Spa, which is only a few minutes drive from Alfresco Villa.
You can visit the Callwood Rum distillery at Cane Garden Bay – the history is interesting and the rum samples are good too! Book a day sail with Captain Patrick at Celtic Power Boats or with Scott at Aristocat Charters – both will give you a fabulous day out on the water. Another interesting activity is to book a tour with the Original Virgin Canopy Tour located in Road Town, the capital of the BVI. This is similar to zip-lining but safer and quieter. The views over Tortola are spectacular. You could finish your day with a visit to the Botanical Gardens in Road Town and a cooling drink while you relax and enjoy the sunset over the beautiful BVI.
Other suggestions are to take a ferry to Virgin Gorda or Anegada for the day – both very easy to do from Tortola. The ferry dock is in Road Town, only 20 minutes drive from Alfresco Villa.
Alfresco Villa is a beautiful and very private villa finished to extremely high standards, in a simply stunning location in the British Virgin Islands.
