Latest Lifestyle News: Life's a Beach in the BVI

Anyone who hasn’t tried kite surfing is encouraged to take a look at the various YouTube videos showcasing the high-octane aquatic leisure pursuit. And if that sufficiently inspires you, then you may be interested to know that one of most popular places in the world to participate in the sport is the British Virgin Islands.

Headlining this week’s newsletter, we feature Anegada Beach Club, where thousands of visitors descend each year for the annual Kite & Paddle Festival. Located on the remote and pristine island of Anegada – famous for its mouth-watering lobster – the festival is a magical event, and with the next edition not scheduled until January 2018, you have plenty of time to plan your trip.

As for the resort itself, it offers luxurious ‘glamping’ accommodation that creates a magical experience for all who visit, along with an exceptional restaurant serving delicious local cuisine. You can read more about the festival, and the beach club, in our newsletter today.

Elsewhere this week, also in the realm of luxury property, we report on the continued push by home sharing company Airbnb into the luxury sector. Originally simply a cheap way to find accommodation while travelling, the service now gives users the chance to stay in some truly stunning properties all over the world.

There’s also been some significant product launches, including in the world of horology, with an incredible clock by Van Cleef & Arpels, a titanium timepiece by MB&F, and an Ulysse Nardin watch that pays tribute to the oil industry, all featured.

Meanwhile in the luxury car sector, we feature the first Aston Martin Powerboat which is set to make its US Debut at Yachts Miami Beach, the new Pagani Huayra Roadster priced at an eye-popping $2.4 million, and an upgraded range of sports saloons by Jaguar for 2018.

Until next time, enjoy our newsletter and have a wonderful week.
