Beach View From Spa At Peter

Set your sites from Tortola for Dead Chest Island, just to the northern side of Deadman’s Bay, the highlight of Peter Island and Peter Island Resort. Here, on Dead Chest Island is where Blackbeard marooned 15 mutineers with a sword and a cask of rum. Now rum flows freely at several bars and restaurants in this world renowned resort, including a beachside grill. Visit Peter Island Resort during your charter, or stay before or after your charter. Your private charter yacht can either pick you up at the Peter Island Resort dock to start your yacht charter or you can end your charter here for several more days of paradise.

Peter Island Resort on Deadmans Bay

Peter Island Resort on Deadmans Bay

One big, private island, one small resort and one beautiful beach encapsulate the essence of Peter Island and Deadman’s Bay. Peter Island resort is classic Caribbean. The 52-room hotel is the only resort on Peter Island, and its owner will not develop more acreage to insure the exclusivity and secret of the resort’s success. Guests find a romantic island with no crowds, noise, themed activities and very few children. What they do find are other couples who dance to live music at night by the pool and relax on the beach by day.

Part of the allure of the setting is its history. Directly to the southwest lies Norman Island, the basis for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island.” Just off Peter Island’s glorious Deadman’s Beach is Deadman’s Island-where a marooning inspired the popular poem: “16 Men and a Deadman’s Chest.” These are Peter Island’s neighbors, and that sense of escaping to an (almost) deserted island never leaves guests’ minds.

Peter Island

Deadman’s Bay is a mile-long, crescent-shaped beach with towering coconut palms that overlooks Dead Chest and Salt Islands. It’s part of Peter Island Beach Resort and thus, a private and secluded stretch of pristine beach for resort guests.

Peter Island Resort’s largest and most spectacular beach boasts protected waters for excellent windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling, and other water sports. Little Deadman’s Bay and Beach is an extension of its senior and is a preferred spot for world-class snorkeling.

Peter Island Resort does have a dock for visiting yachts and dinghies, and welcomes yachtsmen to dine in their restaurants, and as day guests for their water facilities and beaches, for a charge. All can be arranged by your Captain, as reservations are recommended for dining.

Just opened, is a new day spa, with world class treatments, in a world class setting. The spa also accepts visiting yachting guests for treatments with reservations. Make a reservation for a massage or other treatment and then relax on the beach, with a cooling swim.

Peter Island Resort also has a private ferry from a private ferry landing in Tortola. You can either spend time at Peter Island before your charter or after your charter. Either way, you can be picked up by your private charter yacht right at the Peter Island Resort, or dropped at the resort after and take the Peter Island Resort ferry over or back for your plane flight to and from the British Virgin Islands in Tortola.
