Opening onto a lovely beach facing the Sir Francis Drake Channel and the Caribbean sea, this West End resort is built around what was once a 17th-century Dutch fort. The fort was actually rebuilt by the British in the late 1700s—and this is the structure that stands today. Nevertheless, it’s a pretty impressive sight to see—the ruins of a large, squat stone tower from another era—as you noodle around on the beach. Unlike hillside Tortola resorts that offer views from above, this resort is right on a beach, with cottages leading right onto the sand and gentle seas that are perfect for swimming and snorkeling. It’s very lush, nestled in a palm grove and about 12km (7 1/2 miles) from Road Town and Choose from one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites or a spacious beach villa with up to eight bedrooms (can accommodate 30); most suites have full kitchens. Rooms are spacious and cheerfully decorated, with wood beamed ceilings and tile floors. The resort provides guests with a personal local cellphone with emergency and staff numbers, taxi contacts, and more. Ask about meal plans and special packages.
