You reach Peter Island by boat from Tortola. It’s a pleasant 40 minute ride to the resort. The island itself is beautiful with exotic plants and wildlife (iguanas and lizards). There’s a fabulous beach with all kinds of watersports and perfect bathing for young children. A beach restaurant is the venue for lunch each day, and there is a variety of entertainment such as steel bands and stilt walkers. There’s another restaurant up near the main reception which is a lot smarter for evening meals. The quality of the food and service is excellent. Rooms are chalet style and virtually on the beach with outdoor garden area and hammocks – bliss! They are well-equipped with great bathrooms and easy ground floor access. There’s a fantastic spa on the island with a huge range of treatments, including a massage parlour for two where you can be pampered to the sound of the waves. A large swimming pool with a nearby bar and library / games room makes a change from the beach. It’s recommended to spend at least one day on Tortola for shopping, as well as taking out a boat one day (the easiest is a speed boat with driver) to visit some of the other islands – Jost Van Dyke with its legendary bar – and for amazing snorkelling and cave exploring. If you can’t quite afford a week on Necker Island to live like the Bransons, this is the next best thing!

    The main season is during the winter months, but we were there in August, and the weather was perfect. Also there were less tourists which made it even more enjoyable. It's recommended to avoid the hurricane season - Sept / Oct for obvious reasons!
