British Virgin Islands holidays

Things to do in British Virgin Islands include exploring many tropical islands; the best way is to sail.

Comprising around sixty tropical islands and cays, the British Virgin Islands are located in the Virgin Islands archipelago. At 19km long and 5km wide, Tortola is the largest, followed by Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke. All can easily be visited from just one base.

Virgin Gorda is perhaps the best known of the islands, with gorgeous scenery and its stylish resort hotels and villas offering true barefoot luxury. From here you can take a short boat ride to Tortola, the largest of the islands, where the capital of Road Town is filled with markets, boutiques and restaurants.

Privately owned Peter Island, one of the so-called 'out islands', is the fifth-largest and lies off the south coast of Tortola.

Low-lying Anegada, easily reached by a ferry ride, is the only coral island in the British Virgin Islands and has the most beautiful beaches and reefs. Nature lovers will enjoy seeing rock iguanas or spotting the flamingoes in the salt ponds bird sanctuary.

Meanwhile, little Jost Van Dyke, just a few kilometers northwest of Tortola, is known for its laid-back, party atmosphere, great cuisine and ruined sugar mills.
