The Maldives islands are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.
Laurance Rockefeller thought this spot was so special, he created the first ever luxury getaway on Virgin Gorda. That was in 1964 and over 50 years later, the beach remains just as pristine as it was then and the service and food even better.
Built sympathetically around a half mile crescent shaped beach, Little Dix is one of those gems that has stood the test of time, while still offering a very traditional holiday experience. This is a place to relax as much as anything. Lose your watch – there is no time here and as soon as you subscribe to this notion, the better you’ll enjoy your stay.
There are a variety of rooms to choose from, but most are very close to the beach on flat ground. We will tell you the best room for your needs.
There are 3 restaurants offering a range of food from burgers to haute cuisine, particularly at the Sugar Mill which has one of the most idyllic beach settings we’ve come across.
For the highest quality food, service, spa and a beautiful setting, Little Dix Bay is hard to beat.

Sailing around these waters is the main attraction of the BVI’s but if sailing is not your thing, try other water based activities like snorkelling the resorts house reef, scuba diving nearby or deep sea fishing. Alternatively, pop into nearby Spanish Town, take day trips to neighbouring islands, take a trip to the tiny island of Jost Van Dyke and a visit to the Soggy Dollar Bar is practically compulsory.
