It sits on just an acre and a half of land, but Saba Rock Resort might be the Caribbean’s best luxury playground: the eight-room escape houses its own overwater bar and restaurant and 10-slip marina, is a stone’s throw from the sugar-white beaches of Prickly Pear Island, and lies smack in the center of Virgin Gorda’s North Sound—one of the top kiteboarding destinations worldwide, on the map thanks to famous American windsurfer Pete Cabrinha.

Now, you can channel your own inner Cabrinha on Saba’s all-new Kiteboarding Safari. What’s included: a four-night stay in a luxurious suite at Saba Rock, daily breakfast, and a private helicopter transfer to and from Anegada—the northernmost of the British Virgin Islands—where wind-seekers will ride eight miles of impossibly turquoise coastline alongside renowned Fusion BVI Kiteboarding connoisseurs Annabel Van Westerop and Charlie Smith (Richard Branson’s personal instructor). It all ends with post-kiting signature “Painkiller” cocktails at a local beach bar before flying back to Saba for snorkeling, paddle boarding, windsurfing, or beach bumming until sundown.
