British Virgin Islands Holidays
The British Virgin Islands form part of a volcanic archipelago in the Caribbean comprising 60 beautiful islands most of which are uninhabited and are famed for the stunning beaches and incredible marine life as well as the steady trade winds, calm currents and hundreds of protected bays and coves making it one of the Caribbean’s favourite hot spots for indulging in a host of watersports from sailing to scuba diving. Spread amongst the islands are a number of luxurious resorts offering the perfect place to escape and indulge in some sun-kissed pampering.
Why visit the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS?
- Swim with the stingrays and parrot fish at Loblolly Bay on Anegada
- Hike the beautiful trails of Tortola’s Sage Mountain National Park
- Sip on a delicious Painkiller cocktail at the legendary Soggy Dollar Bar
- Go island hopping to explore the incredible diversity of each of the islands
- Wallow in the sheltered sea pools amongst the boulders of Baths National Park
The largest of the four main islands is Tortola, which is home to not only the capital, Road Town, but also a host of glorious powder-white beaches such as Brewer’s Bay, Smuggler’s Cove and Josiah’s Bay to name just a few. Overlooking these turquoise waters are the lush, forested hills of Sage Mountain National Park which offer some lovely hiking when not soaking up the sun. If you can tear yourself away from your sophisticated and luxurious hideaway, then other historic places of interest include Fort Burt, Mount Healthy Windmill, Callwood’s Rum Distillery, the Lower Estate Sugar Works Museum, the Botanic Gardens and the Old Government House Museum.
Virgin Gorda is surrounded by stunning beaches and gin clear waters and offers a slightly slower pace of life. Sailing, scuba diving and relaxing are the order of the day here whilst squeezing in a visit to one or two of the fabulous bars and restaurants is a must. Evidence of its rich blend of cultures and history is plentiful ranging from the Spanish ruins at Little Fort National Park to the Cornish Copper Mines whilst its many natural charms are all around you including Gorda Peak or the massive granite boulders and sparkling pools of Baths National Park.
For those in search of world class diving and snorkelling then the flat coral island of Anegada is the place to head for with one of the world’s largest barrier reefs and an incredible variety of marine life.
Or perhaps you want to escape the ratrace in which case why not head for one of the beautiful private islands such as Peter or Necker where you can escape the crowds and enjoy the exclusivity. Whatever your tastes, the British Virgin Islands offer a magical mixture of stunning islands and sensational hotels.
