Let me take you back to the British Virgin Islands, loyal readers. I’ve already whisked you away to Jost Van Dyke and Necker Island, so I’ll brush up on the final stops on my most recent jaunt to the BVIs which happen to be Virgin Gorda‘s YCCS Marina and Peter Island. Both are so breathtaking, yet entirely unalike. I wore this Maaji coverup to both spots because I get OCD with clothes I adore. You know what I mean?

Anyhoo, YCCS Marina is chi chi chi squared! As in, it’s a state-of-the-art marina catering to super yachts (Read: multi-million dollar boats as big as walloping whales). The interiors (photos above) of the marina’s pool and restaurant beckon guests to Hamptons or Nantucket. I’m a glutton for Ralph Lauren-esque beach cottage furniture and accessories and YCCS clearly is, too, and I loved this trait. Hopefully, my pictures will give you some design inspo. 

Next up? Peter Island. This L-shaped island is home to Peter Island Resort and home to, hands down, the most paradisiacal beach we encountered during our entire voyage through the BVIs. Honestly, the beach here — named Deadman’s Beach — is the closest thing to utopia and it’s perfect for sunning, swimming or yacht watching. While not as “fancy” as YCCS Marina, I enjoyed this resort’s rustic charm — it offers the perfect blend of contemporary and Caribbean if you feel my flow.
