Take Your Family on a Summer Adventure to Scrub Island

Reconnect With Your Family Amid the Exotic Beauty, Soft-Sand Beaches and Exciting Excursions at the BVI's Newest Luxury Destination

SCRUB ISLAND, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) -  With summer just around the corner, start planning now for a family-friendly adventure getaway to Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands. With snorkeling, eco-tours, island-hopping, boating, fishing and a myriad of other activities available, you, your spouse and the kids will be able to unleash their inner explorer amid the pristine beauty of this tropical paradise.

Discovered nearly 500 years ago by Christopher Columbus, Scrub Island was little more than a stopping point for European explorers en route to new lands, remaining relatively untouched by man for centuries. Today, this private sanctuary is home to Scrub Island, the island's first-ever development and a true haven from the cares of the outside world. Encompassing 230 acres, Scrub Island is fringed by natural beaches that shelve gently into the azure sea. Amid the protected coves, panoramic views, and breathtaking nature trails, families can embark on a gleeful exploration that will re-establish family bonds with any number of activities.

  • Sign children ages 8 to 14 up for a Bubble Maker Experience, which helps them learn "controlled supervised underwater breathing" so they can explore the area's underwater wonders under the direct supervision of experienced instructors.

  • Take a day trip to Anegada -- the only Coral Atoll island in the British Virgin Islands -- and bask in the warm sun along the longest and most pristine beaches in the world.

  • Charter a boat and take the family out to the wondrous sea for some sightseeing around the island or to sneak in a bit of fishing.

  • Explore this tropical paradise along the numerous trails the criss-cross the island.

  • Spend an idyllic day on one of the island's natural beaches -- but be sure to bring along a picnic lunch stuffed with enough fabulous food to feed hungry children and adults.

  • Learn more about the British Virgin Islands by experiencing a historical tour of Tortola that tours the first Dutch settlements in the British Virgin Islands.

  • In the evenings, enjoy family movie night where families can relax and watch kid-friendly movies and old classics with fresh popped popcorn. Parents and kids alike can enjoy the movie on a 50-inch, remote-controlled plasma television with a digitally delivered picture.

After long days exploring the tropical paradise that is Scrub Island, Mom, Dad and the children can retire to a spacious, two-bedroom suite for much-needed relaxation and a peaceful slumber. Designed to evoke the charm of Old World Caribbean elegance, the 1,600-square-foot suite showcases a natural stone floor, carved wood furniture, luxurious fabrics and decorative accents to create a soothing blend of traditional, natural, and comfortable.

Throw together a tasty snack or cook a full-fledged dinner in the suite's gourmet kitchen, complete with granite countertops and high-quality appliances such as Wolf professional ranges and SubZero refrigeration. Finish the day by stepping out onto your private balcony for a view of brilliant, blue-green waters that reside between Scrub Island and the Island of Great Camanoe.

Room rates for the family-friendly, two-bedroom suite start at $959.00 thru December 15, 2010. For more information on visiting Scrub Island, or to make a reservation, visit www.scrubisland.com or call (877) 890-7444.
