We are finally letting go of the embers of British sunshine upon swift replacement with clouds, rain and dark nights. But that doesn't mean vitamin D levels have to plummet. We think an autumnal getaway is well in order, and there's no better place to head than Long Bay Beach Resort on the captivating shorelines of the British Virgin Islands.

A secluded haven practically begging you to exchange the chaos of everyday life for a slice of tranquillity, this boutique resort on Tortola Island is a refuge of white sands, tropical whispers and gin-clear waters.

The resort seamlessly blends the island's natural beauty with modern luxury, and the beachside suites provide a sanctuary of serenity, where you can wake up to peachy sunrises and the lullaby of waves kissing the shore. When you're not checking in for some much-needed R&R at the spa (sunbathing, drinking cocktails and eating good food is hard work), you'll get the adrenaline pumping with the array of onsite activities like tennis, pickleball and watersports.

As part of the getaway, venture beyond the resort's paradise to discover the beauty of the British Virgin Islands. Embark on a journey to the nearby Jost Van Dyke, a Caribbean destination revered for its untouched splendour and vibrant culture. Trust us, it's the perfect spot for noshing on Caribbean cuisine to the rhythm of island music.

Whether you're scouting out a romantic getaway, laid-back family vacay or solo trip, Long Bay Beach Resort has got your back. And don't just take our word for it – the resort was recognised as Travelers Choice Best of the Best by TripAdvisor, a testament to the magic that awaits.

Tans might fade, but memories stay, and you'll cherish those you make at Long Bay for a lifetime.
