The British Virgin Islands

Commonly known as The British Virgin Islands (though officially named “Virgin Islands,”) this chain of islands is a British overseas territory located to the east of Puerto Rico and consisting of sixty tropical Caribbean islands, ranging in size from the largest, Tortola to tiny uninhabited islets.. The capital, Road Town, is situated on Tortola. The islands have a population of about 27,800, of which approximately 23,000 live on Tortola.

Other British Virgin Island Points of Interest

  • Cane Garden Bay: this beach on the northwestern side of Tortola is the home of the original Cheeseburger in Paradise at Stanley’s restaurant. It transforms into a dance club in the evenings with live music from the many local bars.
  • Rhone National Marine Park: one of the world's top shipwrecks which sailed for the last time on Oct. 19, 1867 and sank near Salt Island. You can spot the ship's bow from the surface of the sea, but you'll have to dive some 80 feet down to explore the rest of the largely intact vessel and swim among the moray eels and octopus that now call the ship home. It is accessible via dive boats from Tortola ferry terminal.
