Bitter End Yacht Club

North Sound
Virgin Gorda , British Virgin Islands
(312) 506-6205

Think of this casual, water sports-mad resort as a tropical sleepaway camp one where the mess hall has the good sense to serve lobster-and-crab cakes and nutmeg-dusted rum punches, and the bunkhouses are wood-frame beachfront villas cooled by paddle fans and open-to-the-trades slat windows. Not to mention the 2006 revamoed decor. Barbara Hulanicki, of Biba and Island Outpost fame, has created a fresh look: batik bedspreads, teak floors, nautically inspired sconces.
