PlaceS of Interest Sandy Cay Sometimes referred to as “all-beach island” by the locals, this desert island is an islet located just off Little Jost Van Dyke, sheltered by reefs on both its north and south sides. Almost up to the shore the waters here are deep, which encourages boaters to drop by for picnics. Although sandy, the cay still has several hiking trails and of course the waters surrounding it are great for kayaking and snorkeling. Peter Island Despite being the largest privately owned island in the BVI, Peter Island, is deserted except for the owner’s luxury Peter Island Resort & Spa at Deadman’s Bay and Sprat Bay. this island has great hiking trails and five beaches which offer snorkeling and diving. For the visitors who would prefer not to walk, many of the hiking trails are also suitable for biking. Photo Credit: Alica W. Photo Credit: Debra R.
