60 Islands 1 unforgettable experience
The British Virgin Islands located in the Northeastern Caribbean is an archipelago of 60 islands, cays and islets offering a myriad of holiday activities. Lodge at a beachside cottage or luxurious villa, an international hotel or a resort that is the last word in understated elegance. Snorkel with exotic fish on coral reefs. Scuba dive on the wrecks of sunken galleons. Relax amid lush vegetation in National Parks and botanic gardens. Or simply spend the day on a deserted beach where your only decision will be which palm tree to shade yourself under.
Tortola is the largest island, and home of the BVI’s capital Road Town. From the green slopes of Mount Sage to sheltered yacht filled harbours; Tortola offers hotels, luxury villas, beachside cottages and more. The island of Tortola offers a variety of exciting holiday possibilities.
Virgin Gorda home to The Baths and the third largest island in the chain, boosts steep vegetation-covered slopes that tumble down from Gorda Peak to deserted white beaches far below. Today’s discerning travellers are drawn to Virgin Gorda for its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages, luxury resorts and villas.
Anegada the second largest island, is a coral atoll and the only non-volcanic island in the chain. Anegada means “Drowned Land”, its highest point being a mere 28 feet above sea level. Relax on some of the loveliest beaches in the Caribbean, whose names conjure up the island’s rich past – Cow Wreck Beach, Loblolly Bay and Flash of Beauty. Chances are you’ll have the entire beach to yourself, with the breeze rustling in the palm and sea grape trees.
Jost Van Dyke is named for an early Dutch settler reputed to have been a pirate. Sunbathe at the unspoilt beaches of White Bay, Great and Little Harbours. You can even jump across to Little Jost or take a boat to Sandy Cay and imagine yourself a castaway for the day. Or simply relax in the natural bubbling pool Jacuzzi formed by the foaming seas at the east end of the island.
