Peter Island

In 1978, an avid sailor became enchanted by a small volcanic island he kept passing in his travels, and established what has become a world-class resort in the British Virgin Islands. Today, his children continue tending and preserving the island their father so loved and the 20 A-frames, harbor, marina, clubhouse, pool, and spa he built to share his island paradise with others.

Tourists had been welcome here since before this purchase, and visitors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake and the pirate Blackbeard had made stops during the age of exploration, but it was the current owners that made it the retreat it now is. Only a sixth of the land has been developed in order to minimize the property’s carbon footprint, providing a pristine foreground for the sunsets that occur 400 feet above sea level near the Sunset Loop. From here, couples can find magic in the views of the Caribbean Sea, St. John, and Norman Island of “Treasure Island” fame.

Good to Know
