Peter Island



Private Peter Island, British Virgin Islands, is quite hilly, and it has several secluded beaches that are worth seeking out—Deadman's Bay is the most famous. It's the home of the Peter Island Resort and Yacht Harbour, one of the Caribbean's most luxurious and exclusive resorts. The facilities are nestled along the edge of the north shore, leaving the rest of this 8-mi-/13-km-long island completely undeveloped.

Nonguests are welcome to visit the island. It's an extremely popular overnight anchorage for the yachting crowd. You can dine at the beach restaurant or elegant Tradewinds Restaurant (advance reservations required at both) and use the beaches. Just remember to respect the privacy of the hotel guests and refrain from using the resort facilities.

Ferries run regularly between Peter Island and a dock just east of Road Town, Tortola. For information, phone the resort at 284-495-2000.
