Enter…The Annual ‘Vote Off’ Begins!


From the Editor

Summer for British Virgin Islands’ residents and visitors may mean several exciting things.

For visitors, there is the opportunity to indulge in the islands in its heightened state of tranquillity with great summer deals on accommodation, water sports activities, charter excursions and any other vacation diversion that may ignite curiosity.

For residents, it is either a time to relish the more serene atmosphere or for many expatriates, take a desired break home to once again recall the great appreciation they have for living in the BVI’s tropical climate.

Another exciting aspect of this time period is VOTING for VIPY Readers’ Choice Awards. You know the drill (and if you don’t, it’s very straight forward) – visit us at bvipropertyyacht.com, analyse the nominees, then make it count.
