Arriving DIRECT to Virgin Gorda by PLANE
Commercial Flights from SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico to VIRGIN GORDA airport:
Private Charter Flights from SAN JUAN, ST. THOMAS, ANTIGUA & ST. MARTIN direct to VIRGIN GORDA:
Charter flights, available through two BVI companies, allow our guests to avoid lay-overs in busy Caribbean airports. The charter pilots meet you on the tarmac after ground handling staff direct you through the airport and assist you with your bags, immigration clearance, etc., to make the trip as easy as possible. The whole process happens seamlessly; guests are usually on the charter plane in less than half an hour from the time they land in the 4 major Caribbean hubs and collect their bags. Planes are stocked with chilled beer, Coke/Pepsi and spring water for the journey to Virgin Gorda where our guests are met at the airport by Baraka Point staff.
Arriving DIRECT to Tortola by PLANE

Commercial Flights from ST. THOMAS, USVI to TORTOLA:
Commercial flights from St. Thomas to Beef Island, Tortola are operated by Liat.
Private Jet Charters from SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico to TORTOLA:
We recommend Trade Wind Aviation for larger private jets. The Virgin Gorda airport isn't large enough for these types of private charters so they must land at Beef Island, Tortola and transfer to Virgin Gorda by private boat.
From Tortola (Beef Island/Trellis) we recommend a Private Boat or the North Sound Express Ferry to Virgin Gorda. The crossing takes 20 minutes and private charters are booked on our guests' behalves by Baraka Point staff. For more information on private boats & ferry schedules please see below.
