This will be our 6 time sailing in the BVI and we try and find spots that are a little more private. Last time we tried Cam bay and Lee bay. Does anyone have any secluded spots that they could suggest. Has anyone ever anchored on the north side of Prickly Pear?

We too are looking for less crowded which might be near impossible over the holidays, so will be anxious to see replys. Savannah Bay was mentioned to us on VG. What did you think of Cam and Lee Bays?

Some of the cool places are red-lined by the charter companies.

Last year we anchored in both Cam and Lee bay. In Cam bay we had only one other boat join us. The spot was nice and secluded. It is well protected due to the reef although you do get the sensation of being exposed.
Snorkeling was a 4 out of 10. The entrance is not too difficult but you must do it in good light and follow the instructions in the cruising guide. Lee Bay was nice, we shared that one with four other boats. It is a more rustic rocky type of shoreline. Great sunset but we had swells come in at midnight and get so uncomfortable that we had to leave before breakfast in the morning in order to cook. I think if these bays were perfect, everyone would be there. We haven't tried Savannah bay but everything I have read recommends it only for a day anchorage. Hope this helps and we are still looking for new anchorages.

We have been in BVI recently on our first Sailing & it was very good. http://thesunovertheyardarm.com/british-virgin-islands-beginners-part-ii/ Smile
