British Virgin Islands at a Glance

The British Virgin Islands have some of the Caribbean's best sailing, which means harbor views are always replete with little white sails dotting the sea further out. Join sailers, beach combers and avid hikers in exploring this tropical playground.

If  you want to sail or go out fishing, the British Virgin Islands lead the world in charter boat rentals. Snatch up the vessel of your choice and spend a day being buffeted by the gentle trade winds. Watch the cawing frigate birds overhead and catch some of the sun's rays.

On shore, visit The Baths, which are enormous rocks scattered throughout a picturesque bay. These giant rocks are leftovers from the volcanic activity that shaped the island over 70 million years ago. If this popular sight has whetted your appetite for more, head to the interior for hiking, biking and rock climbing galore.
