British Virgin Islands!
A peaceful refuge of tropical landscapes, the British Virgin Islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda are where nature and history conspire to create a tropical paradise.
Tortola's lush and green, mountainous interior defines island beauty and harbors a distinct West Indian essence. Nicknamed The Land of Turtle Doves, it is serene, alluring, and free of crowds - a romantic refuge where the buildings are forbidden to be taller than the palm trees.
A stroll through the capital, Road Town, takes you past traditional lovely pastel West Indian buildings and the yacht-filled harbour. Smart shoppers find good buys on British fabrics, china, and other goods.
Only eight and a half square miles, Virgin Gorda is the perfect spot for those who long to spend day after day lounging on a nearly deserted tropical island. Secluded beaches and mountainous preserves provide a relaxing break from your bustling everyday life.
Walk in the footsteps of pirates, dive among shipwrecks, and sail off to your own deserted sanctuary in the British Virgin Islands.
