Nearly six months after mighty Hurricane Irma tore through the British Virgin Islands, the idyllic destination has made significant progress in restoring its celebrated tourism product. And of course, the best way for travelers to boost recovery efforts is to simply book a trip.
The BVI Tourist Board is excited to launch a special promotion encouraging overnight stays on the beautiful island of Anegada. This tiny paradise was largely spared by the storm, providing visitors a chance to experience its untouched natural beauty and allure.
Now through Feb. 28, guests can book a four-night stay at select properties for the price of three. The offer is valid for stays between Feb. 15 and April 15, 2018 – perfect for spring getaways – by using promo code ANGW18. Visit www.bvitourism.com/i-love-anegada for more information.
There are three properties currently participating with additional partners being added to the promotion in the coming days.
