Road Town/Tortola

Putevima pirata

Odmor na Britanskim Djevičanskim otocima u Karipskom moru savršen je za ljubitelje piratskih filmova. Posjetom otoku Jost Van Dyke odat ćete počast ovom nizozemskom doseljeniku i piratu koji je živio na otoku u 17. stoljeću.


Čim siđete s vašeg MSC broda u luci Road Town, osjećat ćete se kao da ste dio nekog avanturističkog filma. Glavni grad Britanskih Djevičanskih otoka, Road Town nalazi se u najvećem zaljevu Tortola, najvećem na otoku. Kako biste dobili dobar pogled na Britanske Djevičanske otoke, morate ručati na Skyworldu, panoramskom restoranu smještenom na najvišoj točki na otoku, oko 400 metara iznad razine mora.

Jedna od Tortolinih najšarmantnijih plaža, Sugar Cane Bay dobila je ime po velikoj plantaži šećerne trske koja se nalazi iza nje. Kupanje u ovim vodama i ležanje na kristalnom pijesku dok morske ptice uranjaju u more s velikih visina u potrazi za hranom, nevjerojatno je iskustvo. Ovo iskustvo može biti još zanimljivije ako posjetite destileriju Callwood Rum u kojoj su smještene originalne strukture za destileriju šećerne trske, a može se kušati i rum.

Originalni grijač u destileriji još uvijek radi, a rum koji se ovdje proizvodi skladišti se u starim bačvama. Kuća Old Guard House, koja je još netaknuta, pretvorena je u umjetničku galeriju i trgovinu suvenira. Svaki zaljev na ovim otocima ima nešto posebno: svake godine se najveće luksuzne jahte mogu vidjeti kako plove ovim vodama i kako pristaju u jednom od zaljeva na ovim otocima, posebice na šarmantnom otoku Virgin Gorda kojeg vrijedi posjetiti.

Ovdje mangrovo drveće doseže sve do mora i najodvažniji posjetitelji kupaju se u The Bathu, zaljevu u kojem je ogromna vulkanska masa prošarala plažu radeći vijugave tunele koji se moraju slijediti kako biste došli do mora.

    For a chance to discover Tortola along regular roads as well as on paths that are well off the beaten track - giving way to incredible vistas of the neighbouring islands and of Tortola itself - join this entertaining and exciting tour in a four-by-four Landrover jeep. With viewpoints that are not normally accessible to the general public on the itinerary, it is advisable to bring your camera and make ample use of the various photo stops made along the way. As the tour takes you through Road Town, the capital of the British Virgin Islands, and along a trail that will reveal the natural splendour of the island's unspoiled flora and fauna, you can get a real feel for these verdant surroundings. To give you some time to swim, sunbathe and enjoy a refreshing drink, a further stop will be made at a sandy beach before you return to the ship.

    Tortola is separated from the other islands in the south of the archipelago making up the British Virgin Islands by a strait of water called the Sir Francis Drake Channel, which you will sail along after boarding a modern yacht at the waterfront in Road Town. Your jaunt will take you to one of the neighbouring islets, all of which are equally beautiful. After landing on either Norman, Cooper, Salt or Peter Island, you will have time to go for a leisurely swim or don your snorkelling gear to explore the vivid underwater world and coral reefs that are found in this region. The nearby caves are equally worth a visit as grand examples of nature's architecture. As you sail around these historic waterways, you will retrace the steps of such notable seafarers as Christopher Columbus and Sir Francis Drake. Please note: Snorkelling equipment is provided.

British Virgin Islands

Nježna morska uspavanka
Nježna morska uspavanka

Telefonske govornice su crvene poput onih u Londonu, vozite po lijevoj strani ceste, a tipično lokalno piće radi se s Pusserom, omiljenim rumom časnika Kraljevske mornarice.



Ako siđete s broda tijekom krstarenja na Britanske Djevičanske otoke, pronaći ćete velik broj disko-klubova, ali i pubove, svirače metalnih bubnjeva i kolonijalne kuće čiji trijemovi gledaju prema tirkiznome moru. Britanski Djevičanski otoci - stotinjak malih otoka razbacanih po mističnom Kanalu Francisa Drakea - su jedna od najomiljenijih destinacija svih ljubitelja jedrenja i često su domaćini regata koje se održavaju u vodama oko otoka.

 

Nekoliko minuta vožnje motornim brodom od glavnog otoka Tortole dijeli vas od Salt Islanda gdje se nalazi poštanski brod Rhone koji je  potonuo 1867. godine tijekom oluje i za koji je Jacques Cousteau rekao da je jedna od najspektakularnijih brodskih olupina na svijetu. Ovaj brod je ujedno bio i mjesto na kojem su snimane podmorske scene u filmu Bezdan sa Jacqueline Bisset. Sve do studenog možete vidjeti grbave kitove kako plivaju pored Virgin Gorda i pjevaju svoje ljubavne pjesme.

 

Pravu poslasticu predstavlja izlet u Anegadu, uski pojas najljepšeg bijelog pijeska koji je dug 20, a širok manje od 3 kilometra te okružen koraljnim grebenom. To je prirodni rezervat na koji se brodovi često nasukaju, u što ćete se i sami uvjeriti kada vidite gotovo tri stotine olupina na dnu mora koje privlače ronioce iz svih krajeva svijeta.
