Beaches and Pools

Is there a pool on-site?
Caribbean beach resort hotel in the British Virgin Islands with pool and restaurant. The Tamarind Club is an intimate hotel in the British Virgin Islands which features a restaurant, bar/lounge and pool with swim-up bar. Built in the mid \'70s as a community centre of sorts for Josiah\'s Bay estate, the Club has evolved over the years from a happening music scene spot to a quiet holiday hotel with a reputation for gourmet food and good times in a serene setting.

We are located in beautiful Josiah\'s Bay on the north-east side of the island of Tortola (meaning turtle dove or \'love birds\' in Spanish), the largest of the British Virgin Islands.

Only a seven minute drive from the airport and twelve minutes from Road Town, Josiah\'s Bay boasts one of the loveliest and perhaps best surfing beaches on the island.
The British Virgin Islands are a group of 52 islands, mostly of volcanic origin, located 18.4 degrees above the equator. The islands were originally inhabited by the Arawak Indians. The Arawaks were reputed to have been a peaceful, fun-loving lot, which may explain why they were eventually conquered by the warring Carib nation, though it is not clear what became of the Caribs.Today the BVI still hold a wealth of unburied treasure from sunlit beaches to kaleidoscope coloured reefs. An idyllic location for sailing, SCUBA or skin diving, fishing, surfing, mountain biking, visiting national parks or simply relaxing on the beach, all of which can be arranged for you by the Club. And while you are visiting, take a look in nearby Trellis Bay, home of Boardsailing BVI and the Trellis Bay Cyber Cafe, for a windsurfing lesson and lunch at the cafe.Columbus sailed these waters in 1493 and was allegedly awed by the purity and proliferation of the islands hence naming them after Ste Ursula and her 11,000 martyred virgins. To this day Ste Ursula remains the patron saint of the BVI.During the high season of buccaneering the BVI was a virtual pirate's playground, said to have been the setting for Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Also frequented by the likes of Black Sam Bellamy, Jost Van Dyke and Gustav Wilmerding, rumour has it that the land still holds buried treasure left undiscovered due to lack of maps where X marks the spot.One of the least exploited island groups of the Caribbean, the BVI are only accessed by flights from other Caribbean islands most notably: Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St Martin and Antigua, all of which are easily reached by direct flight from many North American and European cities.
