British Virgin Islands
Nature’s Little Secrets…… the British Virgin Islands.
The British Virgin Islands are unlike any other part of the Caribbean that we have visited. They still retain the unspoilt, uncommercialised atmosphere of the Caribbean before it was discovered by mass tourism. For this reason the islands are often referred to as Nature’s Little Secrets.
The islands provide the perfect relaxing antidote to the stresses of modern life. Situated in the north of the Caribbean, there are approximately 50 islands, islets and cays. Tortola, the largest of the islands, has palm fringed sandy beaches surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters and coral reefs– the Caribbean we all see in our dreams. Virgin Gorda is just a short ferry ride away. Once there you will find still more enticing beaches including the unique Baths with its enormous boulders, as well as friendly restaurants and bars.
The British Virgin Islands is a excellent choice for water sports and diving amongst the reefs, which abound with tropical fish and colourful plants. A number of the hotels also have land based sporting facilities such as tennis courts. Most visitors to the BVI though rapidly become adept at the favourite local pastime – ‘limin’ -or just lazing in the sun watching the world go by whilst sipping one of the local rum cocktails.
