The British Virgin Islands consist of five main islands â€“ Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, along with over fifty other smaller islands and cays, many of which are uninhabited. Travelers to the British Virgin Islands are treated to a number of white sand beaches, and can visit the Baths on Virgin Gorda, snorkel the coral reefs near Anegada, or see the spectacular vistas of land and sea by hiking to the top of Sage Mountain. But the British Virgin Islands are really known as one of the world's greatest sailing destinations, and charter sailboats are a very popular way to visit less accessible islands.
This is a first-timers paradise, since the islands are close together and well protected from the Atlantic, making it an ideal location to learn the ropes and practice setting, and arriving at, courses. The British Virgin Islands also plays host to a weeklong kite-boarding event, making it one of the hottest destinations for that sport. When planning your trip to the British Virgin Islands, make sure to browse through the many accommodation options available and pick the one that is right for you and your family. You will find condo rentals, vacation homes, hotel resorts and vacation rentals of all types so take your time to explore them all because we all know that a great vacation starts with a great accommodation.+ More
