British Virgin Islands Holidays Guide
British Virgin Islands (BVI) is a British territory in the Caribbean Sea,located just 30 minutes by plane to the east of San Juan, Puerto Rico.There are about 60 ethereally stunning, smallland massesinthe British Virgin Islands. Considered a sailor's paradise, sailors were the first to recognize that this spot is one of "Nature's Little Secrets." The largest island is Tortola, the center of government, tourist sites, and the financial district; the other main islands are Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke. Dozens of smaller islets and cays (pronounced "keys"), some with fabulous resorts, many more completely unpopulated, make up the rest of the island group. From one island to the next this group is a study in contrasts; mountains abound throughout, and vegetation can differ radicallythanks to combinations of rainfall, soil composition and sun exposure.

The islands are filled with sumptuouspalms and tropical fruit trees including banana, key lime, and mango, as well as flowering bougainvilleaandhibiscus, numerous varieties of cactus, wild tamarind, and fragrant frangipani. It's as breathtakingly lovely as it sounds. The surrounding waters are the deepest shades of blue imaginable, except on Anegada, where the seais more of an ethereal aquamarine. The diversity of the environment on both land and sea makes the BVI extremely appealing to divers, sailors, hikers, sight-seers, and anyone needed to just relax in a hammock by a white sand beach.
If you want a holiday destination where you can dive, surf, fish, and swim in the Caribbean’s most virginal waters, tour or hike through incredible venues, and do it all without seeing another human or even in some cases human footprints, BVI is for you. Accommodations range from the quaintest to the uber-deluxe, with costs ranging from $75USD per night for a cozy cottage to $40,000USD per week for a villa on a private island. Cultural influences can be felt through the islands' music and food,from the native music called fungi to reggae and steel pan, and the savoury taste of local chicken, fish, conch, and lobster dishes (the lobster on BVI is reputed to be the sweetest tasting anywhere), all enhanced with exotic spices.
