Hotel Information


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.
