Located in the Sir Francis Drake Channel, sitting just 200 yards off the south-east of Tortola, the 44 acre Buck Island is an incredibly luxurious and exclusive freehold private island estate, superior to most in the Caribbean.
Buck island has it all; with itís dramatic topography consisting of stunning white coral sand beaches, gently sloping land and impressive vertical cliffs.
With lavish accommodations housing upwards of 20 guests, the residence on the island is both spacious and meticulously designed, host to royalty and dignitaries in the past and providing a variety of unique spaces for people to thoroughly enjoy.
The island comprises approximately 44 acres of land and is perfectly elevated, gently rising to a maximum height of 140 feet above sea-level at the southern-most point, where the residence is located. The southern hill has vertical cliffs facing the Sir Francis Drake Channel varying in height from 30 - 100 feet. A natural rock formation just off the coast has created a protected sea pool with a natural coral bottom.
On the island you will find a wide variety of thriving flora such as cacti and wild flowers, as well as a range of land and sea birds including hawks, cranes, herons and hummingbirds. Even more abundant are the beautiful coral reefs and marine life that populate the surrounding waters.
For Mega Yachts, Buck Island has a protected bay (Bar Bay) on the west side, allowing yachts up to 200 feet to safely anchor. Alternatively, other ocean vessels are able to anchor at Fat Hogs Bay on the east side of Buck Island, the original port of entry to the BVIís for hundreds of years.
