Sailing catamarans dominate the crewed yacht charter scene throughout the ­Virgin Islands. Enjoy snorkeling at The Baths on Virgin Gorda, a cocktail on the Willie T off Norman Island or a gorgeous view like this one of North Sound in Virgin Gorda.

“When you’re on Anegada, go for lobster at The Big Bamboo on Loblolly Bay. It’s not glamorous, but it’s delicious and absolutely perfect for a real island experience.” — Rana Johnson, Perini Navi USA
