Family-owned Peter Island, a small but exclusive resort

Peter Island, the biggest private island in the BVI at 7. 2 Sq kilometres is about 5 miles (8. 3 km) southwest from Tortola.

The island is dedicated to Peter Island Resort guests, day-visitors for the Spa and to yachties who moor their gin-palaces there. The setting of the resort is elegant and discreet, a classic Caribbean pampered hideaway, perfect for honeymoons or a lavish holiday.
Only one sixth of the land has been developed in order to minimize carbon footprint because the owner of the island is committed to preserving its nature.

Best Beaches

Deadman’s Bay Beach

Deadman's Bay beach, Peter Island, BVI, Caribbean beaches

Deadman’s Bay beach, Peter Island.

A picturesque crescent shaped beach fringed by palm trees that provide comfortable shade, is the largest stretch of sand on the island. Despite its name, this is often regarded as one of world’s most romantic beaches. Even more romantic is intimate Honeymoon Beach hidden on Little Deadman’s Bay Beach at the end of Deadman’s Bay.

Little Reef Bay

This isolated, peaceful beach is a gem embedded on the southeast coast. It can be reached by boat but most guests walk from the resort.

White Bay Beach

On the back side of Deadman’s Bay, facing Norman Island, is another spectacular white sand beach that offers fine snorkelling.
