If we may offer an altruistic appeal, your visit this spring and summer will make an impact on the lives of many of the territory’s residents. The lovely people of the British Virgin Islands have been overwhelmed by the warmth and concern they’ve received following last year’s storms. They are incredibly excited to welcome you to their country, knowing you’ll quickly fall in love with their relaxed hospitality, astonishing natural wonders, spectacular views and that unbelievable, crystal clear water. The British Virgin Islands are calling you!
How to Get to Scrub Island
The quickest way to get to the island is to fly into the Terrence B. Lettsome (EIS) airport on Beef Island, Tortola which is a five-minute taxi ride to the dock where the resort ferry picks you up for the 10 minute ride over to the resort. We need your arrival and departure times from the airport to ensure someone is waiting for you outside after you get your baggage to guide you to the taxi.
Most major airlines in the U.S. fly into San Juan, Puerto Rico, which has daily connections via Seabourne and other small airlines to the airport on Beef Island. Alternatively, you can fly into St. Thomas and take a 45-minute ferry to the customs office in downtown Road Town on Tortola, and for the time being the resort is providing complimentary transfers from that location to the resort too. This is about a 40-minute taxi ride to the resort’s ferry at Trellis Bay, so we highly recommend flying straight into the airport (EIS) on Tortola! Please make sure you give us your arrival location and time.
