Nanny Cay

At this port, we have the opportunity to pull our boat from the water, among other services. Nanny Cay Marina offers 320 berths; 120 on the outer parts and 200 on the inside.

Ports in Virgin Gorda – BVI

Virgin Gorda has a lot of great anchorage and moorings. It is an ideal starting point for exploring the smaller islands in the area or the British Virgin Islands. Here are some of them.

Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor és St. Thomas Bay

The Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor is in St. Thomas Bay. It is easy to approach it, we only have to sail the marked channel. The harbor is beautiful, offering great services and marine gas. There are 100 berths, and it is possible to stay for only a few hours, a day, or long-term as well. It is close to the centre of Spanish Town. It is a very peaceful town where you can find many shops, restaurants, and bars. One of the most famous attractions of the town, The Baths, is about 3 km from here. This is a collection of granite rocks on the beach that have become large rock formations. The rocks from tidal basins, channels, and spectacular caves open to the surrounding waters.

Biras Creek

Biras Creek is in the eastern part of Virgin Gorda. If the weather turns bad, it provides shelter. As you approach, pay attention because there is an obstacle on the south side, amile from the resort, Oyster Rock. Fortunately, the rock is marked with a red buoy. You should pass it on the left side.
Biras Creek is very popular among sailors who come to Virgin Gorda. In the evenings, you can admire the sunset or the glimmering reflection of the moon on the open water. Each one creates a very romantic atmosphere.

Deep Bay

Deep Bay is at the northeastern tip of Virgin Gorda. This beautiful beach is very peaceful and quiet, perfect for those who crave a little space. There are 14 moorings, but there are plans to build a port village of more than 80 berths on the north shore of the bay. The channel that leads to the bay is marked with a buoy system. There are great sandy areas to anchor on the north and south shore. Oil Nut Bay Marina provides fuel and water.
