Located on a spit of greenery at the extreme of the British Virgin Island's wildest island, Virgin Gorda, the Bitter End Yacht Club offer travelers a bit of old-school Caribbean refinement. The assumption here is that travelers know how to handle both the a schooner and their rum.
As winter rears its head, we hope that other resorts will take a cure for the club, which has always been more concerned with the creature comfort's native to the Caribbean than piling refinements on top of luxuries. The blue water is luxury enough.
