Holidays to the British Virgin Islands


Holidays to the British Virgin Islands

A collection of over 60 islands, part of a volcanic archipelago, make up the charming British Virgin Islands. With consistent trade winds, calm currents, secluded bays and well-maintained marinas, this is prime sailing territory for all, from first-timers to old-hands. Sparkling clear waters allow for excellent snorkelling and diving; rent a boat from the main island of Tortola and head to Salt Island to explore the RMS Rhone, a sunken mail ship now an artificial reef full of colourful, tropical fish. Out of the water, hike the seven trails through the rainforest-like Sage Mountain National Park, sip on the islands’ signature ‘Painkiller’ cocktail on buzzing Jost Van Dyke or clamber over The Baths, a group of granite boulders forming a series of sea water-filled grottos.

Travel Tips & Advice For The British Virgin Islands

Holidays to the British Virgin Islands offer various fun and exciting activities; go scuba diving and snorkelling through turquoise waters, explore caves and inlets created over time, and sail around every peninsula in search of buried treasure. Trek into dense rainforests in search of wildlife, embark on a spot of fishing, or join a boat tour, surf, dance to traditional Caribbean music, hop between the islands, or simply relax and unwind - how often do you get the chance to do that?
As with many Caribbean islands, the cuisine of the British Virgin Islands is a fusion of different influences, from American and European dishes and those prepared over a BBQ, to those from the East with a little more of a kick. Seafood is enjoyed across all the inhabited islands, and the national dish, fish and fungi, reflects the people's adoration and pride for their local produce. Rum is considered the national drink, so make sure you enjoy a delicious cocktail or two.
The British Virgin Islands boast some of the Caribbean's most visually stunning national parks. Across those 21 parks, you will find rainforests, bird sanctuaries, sites of historical importance, some of the world's most famous shipwrecks, and stretches of beach inhabited by the islands' tiniest creatures. Visit The Baths National Park in Virgin Gorda, with its giant granite boulders, caves and sea pools, or Sage Mountain National Park, Tortola, 305 metres above sea level.
