If you are looking for a somewhat remote pure paradise for your next vacation aboard an all-inclusive gay sailing charter, then the Spanish Virgin Islands are your answer!
Mention the Virgin Islands, and most people think of the U.S. Virgin or British Virgin Islands. Yet, just 15-20 miles from these islands, and only 6 miles to the east of Puerto Rico, lays the Spanish Virgin Islands, also known as the "Passage Islands". The Spanish Virgin Islands have always been a well-kept secret,even back in the days of Bluebeard and other famous pirates who used the islands for hide-outs.
Pristine and unspoiled islands, with spacious deserted white sandy beaches; crystal clear turquoise blue water, and healthy intact reefs teeming with fish, coral and crustaceans. There are hills to climb and explore; nearly empty anchorages, and the natural charm of the BVI from thirty-five years ago.
The Spanish Virgin Islands are easily reached from the eastern coast of Puerto Rico, out of the town of Fajardo, where your sailing vessel will be berthed.
Even though Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the U.S., its strong Spanish heritage has remained. It is worthwhile to take a few days before or after your cruise to explore the island.
While mainland, Puerto Rico has plenty of great sites. Your true, sailing cruise adventure begins as you explore the islands known as the Spanish Virgins. Leaving Fajardo and sailing across the Vieques Sound, Isla Palominos is a great introduction to this area.
Some of the Caribbeanís best diving and snorkeling is on Culebra, whose reefs are also protected by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Pristine coral reefs and clear calm waters provide an amazing opportunity to observe barracuda, stingrays, parrotfish, trumpet fish, blue tangs, deep purple sea fans, and a variety of colorful coral, as well as a chance to swim with sea turtles.
