The dramatic shape of the BVI’s third largest island, Virgin Gorda, reminded Christopher Columbus of a reclining woman, or “Fat Virgin,” inspiring its name. Measuring 8 ½ square miles, Virgin Gorda entices travelers with its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages and luxury resorts and villas.
Natural beauty is in abundance and accessible via indigenous plant-lined trails, nature sanctuaries and natural wonders of our protected national parks. Hike to the island’s high point, Gorda Peak, for a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding islands.
For a quintessential Caribbean vacation, stroll or swim at the unspoiled beaches at Savannah Bay, Pond Bay, Devil’s Bay, Mahoe Bay or Spring Bay.
Evidence of the rich heritage of African, Indian and Spanish history is plentiful, from the Spanish ruins at Little Fort National Park to the Cornish Copper Mines, where the ruins are set against the azure sea at the island’s southwestern tip. This eclectic influence extends to Virgin Gorda’s local cuisine, shops, arts, fashion and gifts.
Born in Colombia and grew up in Venezuela, where she lived on the coast. She moved to the BVI in 2001 and spent the first 14 years setting up and running a successful diving business in Jost Van Dyke.
After that, Andrea worked in the yacht industry as a crew, deckhand, and lately as a yacht chef. Sail all over the Caribbean and the Bahamas, and mostly charter in The British Virgin Islands.
Andrea always has a cheeky smile on her face and guarantees all her guests will have fun on her charters. She is skilled as a Standup Paddleboard Instructor, PADI scuba, licensed powerboat captain, and chef and is now a full-time Villa concierge and property manager.
