The British Virgin Islands are a group of islands in the Caribbean that consist of the main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, as well as more than 50 smaller islands and cays. These islands represent a British overseas territory and are very popular tourist attractions. People come here to enjoy watersports, sailing, and hiking, but you can also go shopping and enjoy the typical Caribbean hospitality. The best way to come here is by boat and you can enjoy cruising from one island to another while enjoying the wonderful scenery. There are many interesting places to see here but here are our top choices.
The Baths in Virgin Goda are one of the most popular tourist attractions in the British Virgin Islands, attracting hundreds of visitors throughout the season. The Baths are best known for their giant boulders carved between the mountains and the sea. These rocky formations have created natural pools and grottos that are just perfect for both swimming and snorkeling. This beautiful natural scenery is the most photographed attraction on the islands and you can see it in most travel brochures.
The Dolphin Discovery on Tortola island is the most exciting and memorable place to visit on British Virgin Islands as more and more people are attracted to this place. Here you can swim, hug, and kiss with the bottleneck dolphins in natural ocean water. The place also has certified trainers that educate the tourists about these magnificent animals. Dolphins are very friendly and the most popular activity here is going for a Belly Ride when you can hold on to the dolphin’s fins as he swims backward. It’s hard to tell whether this activity is more exciting for children or the adults.
Cane Garden Bay is one of the most entertaining attractions on Tortola. The amazing lush green scenery and the beautiful crescent shaped beach make this place the heaven on Earth. Here you can enjoy various watersports, try the local dishes and drinks at the Myetts Restaurant, and enjoy the reggae and soca rhythms.
White Bay on Jost Van Dyke is one of the most beautiful swim spots on the British Virgin Islands. The white sand beach and the turquoise water attract many tourists, especially for the New Year’s Eve parties at Foxy’s Tamarind Bar.
RMS Rhone National Marine Park was formed on the coast of Salt Island and it’s one of the most popular places among divers. Here you can see many fish species including snappers, grunts, soldier fish, and parrotfish. There are two coral caves and Blonde Rock – the series of caves, tunnels, and overhangs rich with fascinating marine life.
These aren’t by any chance all the attractions on the British Virgin Islands and depending on what you enjoy the most, there’s a lot to explore here.
