SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Almost 3,000 guests and fans of the British Virgin Islands arrived at VIVO Beach Club in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico, to celebrate the already traditional BVI Full Moon Party on Saturday, June 22, 2024, an increase from previous years according to event organizers.

Organized by the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board & Film Commission (BVITBFC) and VIVO Beach Club, the party is inspired by the famous full moon parties that take place at Trellis Bay, Tortola and Jost Van Dyke.

“This party has become a tradition and is an excellent opportunity to spend time with our friends in Puerto Rico," said Clive McCoy, Director of the BVITBFC. 

"We are delighted to have more people this year than the last time and we want to remind them to get ready to come to Virgin Gorda to enjoy our Xmas in July event on 20th July,” Mr McCoy added.  

Live entertainment!

Guests present were able to enjoy dancers on stilts, known as moko jumbies, and a show featuring fire stunts. Both have already become the party’s signature acts. Virgin Gorda band Final Faze delighted the audience with their repertoire, which covered pop, soca, reggae and calypso. 

VIVO Beach Club’s DJ Mikie Torres also made guests dance with a selection of Afro-Caribbean numbers. Guests also enjoyed a summer fashion show presented by Alaire, VIVO Beach Club’s fashion boutique 

“Just like last year, the event featured other representatives from the BVITBFC and exhibitors from properties and services in the BVI such as Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour, Leverick Bay Resort & Marina, Long Bay Beach Resort, and Myett’s Garden Inn. Representatives from Silver Airways, which provided flights for the raffle prizes, were also present,’ A release on the inititatie added.

The Full Moon Party climaxed with a raffle featuring prizes including stays at properties such as Leverick Bay, The Hideout, Anegada Beach Resort, Scrub Island Resort, Bitter End Yacht Club, and Rosewood Little Dix Bay.

The grand prize was a five-night stay for two in a beachfront villa with daily breakfast included, at Long Bay Beach Resort, with airline tickets for two, courtesy of Silver Airways.

“I hope this party will encourage those in attendance to plan their trips to the BVI for the Xmas in July 2024 event in Virgin Gorda, or for other short or extended stays” McCoy concluded. “We look forward to welcoming the Puerto Rican Navy once again.”

The BVI Full Moon Party was sponsored by the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board & Film Commission, VIVO Beach Club, Wally Castro Marine, A&A Tours, Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour, Silver Airways and Ocean Lab Brewing Co. Other collaborations came from restaurants, properties and marinas such as Bitter End Yacht Club, Winnie's Steakhouse, Nanny Cay, Leverick Bay Resort & Marina, Myett's Restaurant & Hotel, Long Bay Beach Resort, Scrub Island Resort Spa & Marina and Oil Nut Bay.

    Good job. Sounds like a good event. Take that energy overseas to other regions and tourism will be maintained. When we have an event those people will be motivated to come.

    The BVI tourist board should be ashamed that an BVI event put on in a foreign country had a bigger turnout than the one they put on in their home country! SHAME!!

      REALLY??? You should rethink your comment, i'll give you a few seconds...

      Why do you think the turnout was bigger? Puerto Rico's Population is 3,268,802... The 3000 that attended the event is nothing for them! BVI's population comes nowhere close to even ten percent of Puerto Rico's but the few that came out to the event is close to ten percent of BVI's population!

    THIS BAND FINAL FAZE IS AWFUL. TOURIST BOARD NEEDS TO STOP USING THEM TO REPRESENT US. THEY HAVE NO RELEVANT ORIGINAL SONGS AND SOUNDS TERRIBLE ON STAGE. I AM NOT A FAN OF BANDS THAT SINGS 90% OF OTHER PEOPLE SONGS, THAT IS NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR VIRGIN ISLANDS!

        Jealousy is the wistfulness we experience when we wish we had what someone else has. Envy is the toxic emotion that says I wish I had what you had, but I don’t and I don’t want you to have it either. Envy is extremely dangerous because you end up killing yourself trying to kill others.

      I agree that it is NOT representative of the VI. Miri has nothing to give but american and other caribbean countries songs. Its best they had send Over drive or one of them boy bands because they work hard to push original content.

        This is exactly why our second economic pillar is failing. You have unexposed, poorly traveled people making important branding decisions for the territory. Read the frigging room! Luxury clientele don’t want to listen to songs that they don’t understand and cannot relate to. The ghetto market only exists on social media. In the real world, they don’t got no money to spend in our territory.

      So what would be representative of us? You think luxury clientele want to listen to the rhythm box music the tone deaf young people seem to enjoy here? Which band do you recommend to play for the wealthy attendees of this function? This is why the exclusive properties in the VI bring in their own entertainment. They don’t like the offerings here. If THEY are the audience they will choose what THEY like. When you are the audience, you can do the same.
