British Virgin Islands - Tips for Travelers

Activities in the British Virgin Islands include beach combing, fishing, sailing, visiting national parks, horseback riding, hiking, historic ruins, sunbathing, snorkeling, shopping, museums and swimming in the Caribbean Sea.

Easter celebrations include colorful parades, great food and dancing. On Virgin Gorda, Easter weekend includes the calypso monarch competition parade, queen show and nightly village entertainment. Throughout the year, you can find jazz and other festivals on the islands.

Summers are a great time to visit with kids when they are not in school. You can plan a longer getaway and have a family reunion, creating memories that will last you a lifetime.

Where to Stay

Bitter End Yacht Club is fantastic for sailing enthusiasts because of the resort's complimentary fleet of water craft. Peter Island and Guana Island are private and secluded - you won't have to share the place with any other guests.

Little Dix Bay is a beautiful luxury hotel with stylish accommodations. Necker Island frequently receives media coverage because it is owned by Sir Richard Branson. Many hotels and resorts offer beach and other packages.

Getting There

The easiest available way to get there is via San Juan, Puerto Rico. There are no direct flights from the USA, Canada, Europe or South America to the Terrence B. Lettsome Airport (EIS) which is located on Beef Island, a cay that is linked to Tortola by the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge. All flights must connect through another Caribbean airport such as San Juan, St. Thomas, Antigua, St. Kitts or St. Maarten/St. Martin.

Some of the more remote resorts, like the Bitter End Yacht Club can only be reached by boat, so make sure that you know all the details of how to get to your resort. Usually the hotel will meet you at the airport.

The islands are great to visit throughout the year. Book early during the holidays because hotels get very busy.

Remember to pack hat for protection from the sun. Plenty of sunscreen, and a digital camera. If you are planning to scuba dive or fish, it's a good idea to reserve ahead of time, especially in the summer and during the holidays. Pick a hotel with an on-site dive shop, especially if you would like to get certified.

Visiting National Parks

The Baths National Parks in Virgin Gorda offer visitors pristine beaches and magnificent scenery. Established in 1990, the heart of the park are the Baths, huge granite boulders 40 feet in diameter on the edge of the beach. Devil's Bay is also part of the park. You can reach the bay by climbing the ladders hanging from the huge boulders. Spring Bay is a beautiful scenic spot.
