Silversea Luxury Cruises To ROAD TOWN

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Road Town, Tortola

Colourful houses speckle the rolling green hills of Tortola island, overlooking tempting electric blue waters. Let the unspoiled British Virgin Islands scenery wash over you, as you look out over secluded coves of heavenly beaches, and quiet yacht-filled bays. Road Town is an ideal base for island hopping to the scattered charms of this volcanic archipelago - whether you choose to head out to the dazzling white sand beaches of Anegada, Virgin Gorda’s boulder-strewn caves, or Jost Van Dyke’s famous beach bars. View more

A quieter, more secluded escape than some of the Caribbean’s resorts, Road Town is a laid-back slice of paradise, offering an indulgent selection of serene beaches, fringed by thick layers of palm trees. Strap on your snorkelling mask to submerge in warm water that glistens with swirling fish - spot squirrelfish and clownfish among the reef's many inhabitants. Snorkel leisurely, or dive among the turtles and sleek stingrays that glide through Salt Island Bay’s life-filled shipwreck. For an alternative to the beaches, take on Sage Mountain’s challenge, to tour through a dense mesh of redolent white cedar and mahogany trees. Learn of sugar cane and rum production history – which go hand in hand here - or shop to pick through local jewellery or handcrafted metalwork. Get a flavour of island cuisine, by enjoying succulent flying fish sandwiches, or follow your nose to spicy barbecues producing pork roti with a fiery jerk kick on the sand. Round off your meal with a sweet guava pastry.

Excursions in ROAD TOWN

Escape to Jost Van Dyke

Embrace the spectacular island beauty of Caribbean Sea during this sun-drenched, half-day catamaran excursion to idyllic Jost Van Dyke.


Catamaran-Ride, Caribbean Sea, Peter Island, Treasure Island, St. John

Depart the pier for the short walk to the tender dock. Upon arrival, embark your awaiting, high-speed catamaran, the Rebel Yell. After receiving your safety and boating instructions, begin your scenic, approximately 45-minute drive to neighbouring Jost Van Dyke, the ultimate beach paradise for sunbathing. En route, take in splendid views of the blue Caribbean Sea, and pass by several classic Caribbean islands, including Peter Island, 'Treasure Island' and St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.


Southern Jost Van Dyke, White Bay, Beach, Free Time, Sunbathing, Swimming, Lounging

Upon arrival at White Bay on southern Jost Van Dyke, your boat drives its shallow bows up on the beach in front of the renowned Soggy Dollar Bar so that you can walk with your bags ashore and only get your feet wet. During your approximately three-hour visit to White Bay, enjoy the white-sand beach and sunbathe, swim.


Soggy Dollar Bar

The renowned Soggy Dollar Bar is the best beach bar in the British Virgin Islands, and where the famous 'Painkiller' cocktail was invented in the 1970s. This is the Caribbean as it was meant to be; completely relaxing and stress-free. Food and beverages are available for purchase at the Soggy Dollar at your own expense. Beach chairs are included for guests purchasing food and bevarages. Many people enjoy taking their drinks in to the crystal-clear water, which is protected by the outer reef, to while away the time in conversation. At the conclusion of your visit, embark your catamaran and commence the approximately 45-minute ride back to the tender dock. Upon arrival, disembark the catamaran and walk back to the ship.

Half day in Virgin Gorda & the Baths

Discover Virgin Gorda's unique natural terrain during this scenic visit to 'The Baths' at Spring Bay.


Depart the pier aboard a local launch for a 40-minute cruise along the Sir Francis Drake Channel, and on to Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda. The famous waterway has seen scores of pirates and buccaneers who once plied their profitable trade here.


Virgin Gorda

Arrive at the quaint Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda's main settlement. Here, your safari bus awaits you for the short drive to the top of the Baths at Spring Bay. As you approach the area, see the characteristic boulders strewn across the arid ground. They are reminders of volcanic action some 70 million years ago. Follow your guide down to the amazing Baths along a narrow trail set between huge boulders on both sides.


The Baths

Along a powdery, white sand beach, giant boulders are poised on top of each other in seemingly precarious positions. Weathered by the elements and over time, a series of spectacular pools and grottos have been created. The site is a natural phenomenon and never fails to amaze its visitors. Take a swim in the clear, warm water, or squeeze through narrow crevices and discover small caverns where sunlight creates cool hues. The picture below the waterline is equally fascinating with small tropical fish darting through the crystalline water. A total of about two hours will be spent at the Baths.

Aragorn is a born British Virgin Island islander of English decent, who has built a life in the islands from his Art and his passion for Agriculture. The visit begins with a brief introduction to the farms regenerative and organic operations. Whilst Aragorn gives a 20-minute talk on the history of Agriculture in the British Virgin Island, you will be nibbling samples of the farms produce.

Unusual fruits such as the Soursop or an ancient bread made from the root of the Cassava, give you a taste of the BVI and an insight into what makes these islands so special in the history of the Caribbean. The visit then takes you on a walk down the steep hill to view the incredible stone terraces and vegetable beds that they support.

The studio visit comes with a brief talk on the history of the studio and how a journey in a Kalinago-Carib canoe down the islands has connected Aragorn with some of the top traditional crafts makers in the Caribbean.

The story of Caribbean Arts and Craft is interestingly closely tied to the story of Agriculture, Aragorn will share with you how both sectors where historically interdependent and how both activities are being reborn....again in many ways thanks to the interest of visitors to the British Virgin Islands.
