Recreation on Peter Island of the British Virgin Islands

There are five private beaches on Peter Island. Deadman's Bay is a mile-long crescent shaped, white sand beach with towering coconut palms overlooking pristine Dead Chest and Salt islands. Little Deadman's Bay attracts yachts worldwide and is a popular snorkeling spot. Honeymoon is the resort's most intimate beach, with just two lounge chairs beneath a single thatch hut. Big Reef Bay stretches three quarters of a mile and is a brilliant, shallow reef idyllic for beach combing and sunset walks. A fitness trailwinds along the palm-lined beach.

It is also popular for picnic lunches.
