There’s nothing that a little sunshine, warm water and ocean breezes can’t cure (in our opinion). And if the British Virgin Islands are on your travel list, Hallas Travel has a new way to warm up your post-winter bones. The tour operator’s Island Hopping Experience is a seven-day getaway loaded with five-course dinners, helicopter excursions and your own private yacht and staff for the week. While the Hallas team can customize any itinerary, their sample schedule departing Miami already sounds like a winning plan.
On Day 1, leave Florida and head to St. Croix via private jet before transferring to a seaplane and arriving on your exclusive yacht. Along the way, the yacht will make stops in Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Scrub Island & Marina Cay, Jost Van Dyke & White Bay and Saint John. Each island’s adventures includes world-class activities such as snorkeling in the BVI’s only coral atoll, getting a birds-eye view from a helicopter of the area’s 60 islands and a chartered scuba dive excursion. Onboard, you’ll be treated to all meals, some on deserted beaches at sunset and accommodations in luxury cabins. The experience is priced at $252,000 for up to six guests.
