One of the British Virgin Islands’ most exclusive resort communities has added a major new amenity: a new heliport.
Virgin Gorda’s Oil Nut Bay has added a new heliport certified for international arrivals, the first of its kind in the Caribbean region.
The service, which is available for owners and guests at Oil Nut Bay, now has direct flights from both St Thomas and San Juan.
Guests can also use the heliport to travel to St Barth, St Maarten, Anguilla and other nearby islands.
The heliport has ICE immigration clearance on site and the staff are fully trained in all aspects of helicopter travel.
The service is operated by Caribbean Buzz Helicopters.
It’s a boost for the resort, which is only accessible by boat or helicopter.
