Vacation Rentals in the British Virgin Islands

Officially considered a British overseas territory, the British Virgin Islands are made up of four principal islands along with more than 50 smaller cays and islands. Out of all these, about 15 have inhabitants, with the largest island, Tortola, possessing the vast majority of islanders. Tortola also boasts the capital of the British Virgin Islands: Road Town.

Visitors will find that British Virgin Islands vacation homes allow them to see not only Tortola, but also the other major islands: Virgin Gorda ("The Fat Virgin"), Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke. Each island has its own unique charms. Tortola, for example, has 13 different marinas, along with a local mountain known as Mount Sage that can provide a pleasant day's hike to the summit.

Virgin Gorda, on the other hand, features an area known as Baths, which is made up of a series of grottoes and caves frequented by snorkelers who enjoy the mazelike challenge it presents. This island also has a peak, and it can be accessed by car or on foot.

Anegada Island is a coral atoll whose outstanding feature lies in the waters offshore; more than 300 separate wrecks dot the seas around the island. Anegada is also known for its flocks of pink flamingos and the pink conch shells that cover its beaches. No trip to Anegada is complete without sampling the Anegada lobster, widely considered more succulent than the more common North American Maine varieties.

On Jost Van Dyke Island, there are fewer than 6,000 feet of paved road. Tourists here relax in one of the two bars and simply enjoy the view.

The British Virgin Islands

The BVI is a spectacular vacation destination, and a charter yacht is the best way to see its beautiful close-knit island chain consisting of 60+ islands, many of them uninhabited and no bigger that a football stadium. Each island is surrounded by sheltered waters and beautiful coral reefs. Every island has its own pristine bays to anchor, turquoise waters and powder white beaches. The BVI has a vibrant culture, with some of the best beach bars known to the Caribbean. The area is very safe, with a very low crime rate. The BVI is considered one of the best sailing and snorkeling/scuba destinations in the world.
