A scattering of more than 50 islands, the British Virgin Islands tick along at a laid-back, Caribbean pace. Our specialists have explored this archipelago, searching for the best experiences, low-key beachside towns and luxury island retreats. We might suggest a holiday in the British Virgin Islands that includes a stay on a private island resort, a shipwreck dive or a picnic on your private sandbank.
Most of the islands are uninhabited, sheltering secluded coves, pockets of virgin rainforest and flourishing reefs. They were also a playground for pirates, and you can follow the myths and legends surrounding these privateers on a day’s sail, stopping at Soper’s Hole, reputedly the base for Blackbeard’s fleet. For complete freedom, you could charter a private, crewed yacht, dropping anchor whenever and wherever you wish.
With other Caribbean destinations a short hop away, combining the British Virgin Islands with nearby islands gives you a real sense of the region.
