British Virgin Islands Holidays

A myriad of charms

Discover the magic of the British Virgin Islands. Laid back, low-key and with an undeniable feel of exclusivity as well as being one of the world's most popular sailing destinations.

There are more than 60 islands to be explored, each with its own identity, splendor and legends. Think breathtaking islands, secluded bays, spectacular snorkelling spots and a backdrop of passing super yachts, blue skies and shimmering waters. Located in the north eastern Caribbean this volcanic series of islands consists of four main ones and numerous smaller ones.

Top attractions to visit are Tortola where you'll find the capital, Road Town with markets, boutiques and restaurants. Head to the rainforested Sage Mountain National Park and on Virgin Gorda be sure to visit The Baths, a labyrinth of beachside boulders which are a must see on any visit to the British Virgin Islands. We recommend pairing a stay on the BVI's with a few days in either Antigua or Grenada for the perfect Caribbean holiday.
