Virgin Gorda, the third largest of the British Virgin Islands, is known for its pristine beaches, history, nature sanctuaries, stunning landmarks and seclusion – an idyllic getaway for anyone with an adventurous spirit. Starting June 1, American Airlines will begin daily, nonstop service from Miami to the British Virgin Islands. The three-hour flight from Miami International Airport toTerrance B. Lettsome International Airport represents the first nonstop U.S.-to-BVI route available since the 1980s.

The new direct flight makes travel to destinations in the BVI swifter, including transit to the luxury boutique resort Oil Nut Bay. Located on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, Oil Nut Bay is spread across 400 acres, accessible only by boat or helicopter. For guests traveling on direct flights from Miami to the BVI, after landing at Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island, they can take a short 20-minute boat or helicopter ride to land at Virgin Gorda. The journey is well worth it once onsite: guests can avail themselves of a host of custom-designed private suites and villas sprinkled into the island’s topography. The design honors and takes inspiration from the natural surroundings, seamlessly blending the indoor and outdoor spaces. Each of the resort’s eco-minded rentals offer incredible views and perks ranging from private pools, outdoor kitchens and electric golf carts. Villas range from the one-bedroom Cliff Penthouse Suite situated atop a craggy bluff overlooking the dramatic coastline to the 4-bedroom Constellations Villa (newly added to the rental pool!) with a private beach overlooking Necker and Anegada Islands. Plus, private butlers trained by The Professional British Butler School and private chefs are available, so guests don’t have to lift a finger. 

Guests can relax and enjoy the reimagined Beach Club with an updated restaurant space, a new menu concept, and a new private dining area. Don’t miss a day at the resort’s Instagram-famous three-tiered pool with swim-up bar. Additional amenities include wellness center with gym, tennis and pickleball courts; equipment for watersports ranging from wing foiling to diving; onsite barn for rescued animals; Nova overwater restaurant and bar; 93-slip marina; Nut House Kids Club; world-class dining options; and hiking trails with sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea.
