a private sanctuary in the british virgin islands

A lush expanse of green topography and rising rocky terrain—both brimming with flora and fauna—unfolds in undulating patterns against the backdrop of a turquoise Caribbean Sea. Waves splash onto cliffsides and roll onto beaches. Whales are seen in their sapphire abyss, vibrant birds pay the island a visit, and turtles and tropical fish share the sea. Gentle trade winds kiss the trees; warm sands caress the toes. This is paradise. This is life at Oil Nut Bay.

The clear blue waters and gentle northeastern trade winds provide the world’s best sailing and yachting, while the mild temperate climate allows for a ten-month season and endless opportunities for adventure both on water and ashore.
