The British Virgin Islands consist of sixty small but beautiful islands in the Caribbean. These idyllic islands centre around the Sir Francis Drake Channel. The Channel offers some of the best sailing in the world. If you love the water, then a luxury family holiday in the British Virgin Islands will not disappoint you.
The main island is Tortola which is well developed, with the best beaches on the North Coast. Other islands are lush, rural and have nothing but one exquisite hotel. Superb beaches dot the BVI’s and the surrounding cays. Other islands include Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke.
Virgin Gorda is the third largest island, and home to the gorgeous Bitter End Yacht Club. It features Spanish Town, a quaint population centre with elegant boutiques and an established marina. The two most popular attractions are the Baths – a beach area grouped into grottoes and tidal pools – and the Old Copper Mine, a haunting 19th century ruin in the midst of a national park.
Peter Island is a private island and resort, a dreamy and romantic holiday destination. It features three luxurious restaurants and well stocked facilities for watersports.
You can enjoy this collection of paradise islands at your own relaxed pace or immerse yourself in the BVI way of life. Try your hand at sailing, wreck diving, kiteboarding, fishing, historical sites, national parks, and variety of other sports.
