The Destination
Tortola—the largest of the British Virgin Islands—has come to be known as the "bareboat capital of the world." As tranquil as the sight of sails bobbing noiselessly in the Road Town harbor, Tortola is a place of gentle trade winds, plentiful sunshine, and grassy hills that cascade down toward sugar-sand beaches. While you could spend all day lounging on those shores, you'd miss out on the bounty of activities the island landscape affords. Boat or snorkel on the clear Caribbean or blaze a trail through dense interior rain forests.

The Digs
Situated on a 52-acre parcel between the inland hills and a mile-long stretch of powdery beach, you'll find Long Bay Beach Resort & Villas. All guest rooms are decked out in island-style decor and many show off expansive ocean vistas. Beachfront Cabanas stand on stilts above the sand, while Poolside Oceanview Deluxe Rooms provide easy access to the swim-up bar. Tortola's Colonial heritage is reflected in the gracious, plantation-style main building adjacent to an 18th-century sugar mill, which now houses the 1748 restaurant.

The Diversions
Once you reach your sun-bathing limit, switch things up with a dip in the swimming pool or a few sets on the on-site tennis courts. Off campus, charter a sailboat and cruise across Drake Channel to explore Norman Isle (the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island), or head inland to lose yourself in Sage Mountain National Park. Back at the resort, soothe your muscles with a decadent treatment at the Wellness Spa & Salon before delighting your taste buds at The Pasta House, serving traditional Italian cuisine and fine wines al fresco.

  • "For complete resort facilities, this is the premier choice. A favorite of travelers since the 1960s, this resort lies on a 1.25-mile sandy beach on the north shore... Each unit does have an ocean view."

    -- Frommer's
