For sun worshipers, sailing enthusiasts, and those who simply love to kick back with a cocktail-filled coconut, the British Virgin Islands can provide the ultimate winter escape. Only 15 of its over 50 islands are inhabited, and all boast a surplus of gorgeous shorelines guaranteed to inspire even the most app-addicted of smartphone users to forgo their devices. In addition to snorkeling over shipwrecks and sunset paddle-boarding, arguably the biggest draw here is island hopping.
Start at Smuggler’s Cove on Tortola—In a sea of truly breathtaking beaches, this paradisiac nook warrants an entirely new superlative. Take a day to pop outside the tourist zone and be cared for by locals; they'll melt whatever's left in your mind of winter with fresh tropical libations and grilled seafood. Over on Jost Van Dyke, Foxy’s is a must, not only for its classic sandy bar scene and microbrews, but because its namesake is always ready (guitar in hand) to perform personalized freestyles for his delighted guests.
