One of the British Virgin Islands’ most exclusive resort communities has added a major new amenity: a new heliport. 

Virgin Gorda’s Oil Nut Bay has added a new heliport certified for international arrivals, the first of its kind in the Caribbean region. 

The service, which is available for owners and guests at Oil Nut Bay, now has direct flights from both St Thomas and San Juan. 

Guests can also use the heliport to travel to St Barth, St Maarten, Anguilla and other nearby islands. 

The heliport has ICE immigration clearance on site and the staff are fully trained in all aspects of helicopter travel. 

The service is operated by Caribbean Buzz Helicopters. 

It’s a boost for the resort, which is only accessible by boat or helicopter.

It’s one of the most important source markets for Caribbean travel you never hear about: California. 

While it doesn’t send as many travelers to the region as major markets like Miami and New York, the California market, particularly Southern California has long been an important feeder for the region, particularly for many of the Caribbean’s ultra-luxe hotels and resorts. 

And now one Caribbean destination is capitalizing on that demand in a big way. 

The Cayman Islands’ national flag carrier, Cayman Airways, has officially launched nonstop service between Los Angeles, Calif. and Grand Cayman. 

The first-ever flight between Grand Cayman and Los Angeles took off this weekend, with weekly nonstop service operating on Saturdays out of Owen Roberts International Airport.

It’s no secret that Nassau Paradise Island has become a haven for star chefs, from pioneer Jean-Georges Vongerichten to recent arrivals like Daniel Boulud and Marcus Samuelsson. 

And now another star chef is coming to The Bahamas, with Michelin-awarded Michael White opening the new Paranza at The Cove, Atlantis early next year. 

White, best known for New York City restaurants like Marea, Ai Fiori and Osteria Morini, were he earned Michelin stars and James Beard awards. 

White will join a culinary Mecca of its own at Atlantis, which is home to eateries by fellow Michelin-starred chefs Nobu Matsuhisa and Jose Andres. 

In fact, Atlantis Paradise Island is the only resort in the Caribbean with restaurants by three Michelin-starred chefs. 

Actually, that number will soon be four: the hotel is also adding a restaurant by another Michelin-star chef: Danny Meyer, whose beloved Shake Shack hamburger eatery is coming to Atlantis next year, too.
