Getting Here

The best routes to get to Bitter End are to fly into San Juan, St. Thomas, Antigua, Virgin Gorda or Tortola. You can fly into Tortola’s Beef Island airport (booking code = EIS) and then take a private ferry for a 30-minute scenic trip direct to Bitter End’s dock—where a cool towel, cold beverage and a warm Caribbean smile awaits. Please be sure that we have your flight information at least two weeks prior to your arrival so that we can arrange for your boat transfer.

All visitors to the Caribbean, including those from the United States and Canada, need to carry a valid passport for travel into and out of the British Virgin Islands. For more information on the passport requirements from the US and Canada, please visit the following web sites:
