British Virgin Islands (BVI)

 

The British Virgin Islands, or "BVI" to its followers, is a world-renowned island sailing paradise. The three main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke are each unique destinations. The string of smaller islands along the Sir Francis Drake Channel shields the entire area from the stronger currents of the Atlantic Ocean to the east, while offering natural beauty and water recreation options. When you see photos of a lone sailboat, anchored in a scenic cove with a white sand beach and mountain behind it, there's a good chance it was shot in the BVI. This area provides the perfect setting for Purpose Bound participants to reflect and contemplate. Or to simply relax on a hammock on a quiet stretch of sand, drifting off to the sound of the never-ending lapping waves.
