Scrub Island British Virgin Islands St Thomas Boat Rental Center

Scrub Island, British Virgin Islands

Scrub Island is just across from Tortola and is visible from the airport (on Beef Island). To get to Scrub Island, you take a short ferry ride across the channel from the airport, or you can arrive by helicopter, or on your St. Thomas Boat Charter. No matter how you get here, you have to see this place for yourself. The marina is often home to some of the world’s biggest yachts, easily accommodating up to 160 foot ships. The island has three very different private beaches, and even has one called Honeymoon Beach that is accessible only by kayak. You’ve got a great shot at solitude on this gorgeous stretch of sand. If you just want to stop by and check it out, Scrub Island is a great lunch stop. The One Shoe Beach Bar and Grill offers great food and even better views of the channel. Kick back and watch the planes land across the channel at Beef Island while you enjoy Caribbean cuisine.
