Catch A Soper's Hole Sunrise

Rate this Adventure British Virgin Islands Frenchmans Cay Hotel

Added by Will McKay

This secluded spot is absolutely epic for photography. Stunning coastal views and colorful sunrises make for amazing shots.

To get to Soper's Hole Tortola, BVI, if you're a non-British citizen, requires a passport and valid ID (and anything else that is required for travel in the country). To enter the territory, I flew into St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, and then took a ferry to Soper's Hole, Tortola, BVI. Then drive or walk (it's a small town) to any of the jaw dropping coastal views. Personally I walked and photographed the sunrise by a small hotel called Frenchmans Cay Hotel (it's not a huge corporate resort, it only consists a few villas). This place is beautiful and has a sick cliff on coast!

Once finding your spot, sit down and wait. Take in the amazing views and enjoy a beautiful sunrise! I also highly advise staying at least 30 minutes after the sun has risen. This time frame leads to some of the craziest colors you've ever seen. I recommend using The Photographer's Ephemeris app, which allows you to pinpoint the sun from your exact location, as well as find out the rise and set times.
