The British Virgin Islands

The Amerindians populated these gemlike islands over 1,000 years ago. On some of the 50-plus islands and cays, it may seem as if they were the last ones here! Some say, “Walt Disney could not have created a better cruising ground for sailors.” These are only a few of the reasons this hidden archipelago of the British Virgin Islands is called “Nature’s Little Secret.”

The BVIs are accessible from the United States Virgin Islands (USVI), and San Juan, Puerto Rico, and many other points of embarkation. Tortola has several ports of entry by sea as well as the Terrance B. Lettsome International airport on the adjacent, Beef Island.

The largest of the British Virgin Islands, Tortola, at its highest elevation of 1716 ft., boasts what is known as a moist forest in the 86 acre national park, Sage Mountain. To her East lies the second largest of the BVIs, Virgin Gorda, or VG for short. Virgin Gorda has a small airport, two points of entry by sea and a sea plane arrival point at Gunn Creek in North Sound.

Several habited and uninhabited, famous and infamous islands are sprinkled along the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Off Virgin Gorda’s southern point is small collection of boulders know as Fallen Jerusalem. Sailing from East to West one passes by Ginger, Cooper, Salt, Peter and Norman islands. To Tortola’s North lies Guana, Great and Little Camanoe, and Jost Van Dyke. Although most of the islands seem to spring up out of the sea, Anegada, the Northern-most of the island group, is a coral atoll. Lying virtually flat and being surrounded by sugar-white sand beaches, her waters are fringed by the massive “Horse Shoe” coral reef. If your schedule permits, Anegada is not to be missed. The abundance and variety of flora and fauna within these islands is extensive and one only needs to do a little exploring to uncover many of its’ hidden treasures.

Culture and history are evident throughout the islands. A visit to a rum distillery or a museum will enable to you to see first-hand the lifestyle of the BV Islanders during the 18th and 19th centuries. Still today, ruins of forts, homes, churches and distilleries are scattered within the valleys, towns and beach fronts, inviting you to embrace the history and a not-soon-forgotten way of life. The Dutch and British made these islands their home as far back as the 1600s. An amalgamation of cultural influences from the Arawaks to the modern-day settlers can be found in the islands’ music, food and arts & crafts. What better place to enjoy a holiday on land or at sea - in “Nature’s Little Secrets”? Come and have them be revealed to you.
