This popular cruise port destination is beautiful, with its dramatic landscape and coastline. Volcanic in origin, the British Virgin Islands are part of the Virgin Islands, of which the British portion comprises over 60 different islands. The main Island – Tortola was, like many other Caribbean islands, the site of many sugar plantations. Over at the Cane Garden Bay, you will be able to visit rum distilleries that are still in operation. A hike on Sage Mountain, gives you a view of the entire island, and allows you to admire the magnificent coastlines. Throughout the island, numerous forts remain as a reminder of a more military past. Over on the other islands, the Virgin Gorda is also a popular tourist destination, especially known for the Baths, an unusual geographical formation of rocks forming an assortment of tidal pools by the southern coast. Over in Anegada, visitors are greeted with miles of sand beaches surrounded by Horseshoe Reef – one of the largest barrier coral reefs in the Caribbean and the third largest in the world. This remote part of the BVI is known as a place to relax, and is the home of the Caribbean flamingos and the endangered Anegada rock iguana.

Travel Tips from people who've been to British Virgin Islands
Since this is the island under British goverment british laws apply! It effected me when I tried to smoke in a restaurant because smoking is not allowed in any public place except the streets. There is nothing to do downtown. You can walk around but there is nothing interesting to find except few restaurants, international food shops and things like that. People seem to be bored and they are not very friendly or talkative. I couldn' t realize what's their problem. If you want to relax go to the beach on other side of the Island because Tortola has probably the nicest beaches in the Caribbean. However I wouldn't recommend this island to the people willing to party unless you come with a group of friends. In that case the place doesn't metter at all!

Anegada is one of the smaller British Virgin Islands, not far from Puerto Rico. Usually you take a small plane from San Juan to Tortola and from there a small 4-6 seater to the Anegada Airport (which is more of a 'shack'). Don't let that discourage you, though! We stayed at Lavenda Breeze, owned by George Brown, which was absolutely beautiful! The private beach was also lovely. The people were friendly, and while there isn't a lot to do there, except eat wonderful food, it truly is a 'vacation' - a time away from the hustle and bustle. I highly recommend it to those who would like to get away, watch some TV, read a few good books, bask on a private beach, snorkle and generally get away from it all!
