Strewn on the Caribbean like carelessly discarded jewels, the British Virgin Isles are comprised of approximately 60 individual islands, of which about 15 are inhabited. The capital, Road Town, can be found on the largest of these islands Tortola, which is also home to a very large proportion of the population. With its wonderful geographic position it is no small wonder that billionaire Richard Branson owns two of the islands! A holiday to the British Virgin Isles has something to offer everyone, from water-sports to relaxing on the beach. Your perfect British Virgin Island holiday is waiting for you.
The Spring Regatta takes place every year, around the time of the 4th July weekend. This is a marvellous 7 day series of races not be missed by sailors of all abilities.
The tropical climate, freshened by trade winds, results in little variation of temperature and sun-worshippers can indulge themselves year round.
Wonderful scuba-diving sites can be found in the waters of the British Virgin Islands. Not only are there magnificent Caribbean coral reefs with their fabulous throngs of fish, but there are several wrecks which have been reworked as dive sites, such as RMS Rhone which sank in 1867.
Fish for the catch of the day! For the relatively low cost of a non-resident’s recreation permit fishermen can fish for the likes of bonefish, wahoo, sailfish and even blue and white marlin.
