The British Virgin Islands is a volcanic archipelago consisting of 4 main islands and over 50 cays and islets in the Caribbean Sea. This prominent destination is known for its beautiful coastlines, especially on the islands of Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Anegada, and Virgin Gorda. Beachgoers can relax on idyllic stretches of soft white sand while adventurists can enjoy a wide range of water sports – surfing, wreck diving, and snorkelling are among the best things to do in the archipelago. 

    The British Virgin Islands has a lot more to offer than just beaches, though. You can explore intriguing landmarks dating back centuries, such as Fort Charlotte and the Callwood Rum Distillery on Tortola, as well as copper mine ruins on Virgin Gorda. There are also plenty of modern pleasures – restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and shops – close to the islands’ major piers and resort areas. Whether you prefer a peaceful or active tropical holiday, the British Virgin Islands will deliver remarkable experiences.
