There are four main British Virgin Islands; Virgin Gorda, Tortola, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke. Tortola is the largest and it is the most developed, with homes and vacation rentals wrapping up the mountains, and through pretty mangrove forests. There are also lots of Virgin Gorda rentals, which is widely described as the prettiest island, with the feel of an untouched tropical paradise. Plan to book a BVI villa rental property on one of these two islands for the best access to attractions and activities, and don’t worry! It is easy to island hop.
Only about 100 people live on Jost Van Dyke, but the island’s excellent night life has earned it the reputation for great parties. Plan to spend an evening at one of the island’s six wonderful restaurants. Also make sure to take a ferry one day over to Anegada, which is the most northerly British Virgin Island. It is a the second largest island, but there are only about 200 people who call it home, mostly in the small town called The Settlement.
BVI was one of the first places to embrace the ideals of eco-tourism, which is why a BVI vacation is guaranteed to have the feel of visiting an untouched tropical paradise.
So, if you’re thinking that a Caribbean beach vacation is the perfect choice for you and your family, check out some of the excellent luxury BVI rentals available, and start packing. Spend your days at The Baths, Virgin Gorda’s world famous beach, or explore the 400-year old sugar mill on Tortola. Book a tour to scuba dive around Anegada’s mysterious shipwrecks, or charter a yacht for an evening on Jost Van Dyke. There is so much to do and explore here in the British Virgin Islands!
