Tortola, the largest island, once sheltered Edward Teach (better known as Blackbeard), and today yachts ply between marinas, sailing past stylish à la carte restaurants and crescents of sand. Guana is an understated private island surrounded by pristine white sand, its jungle interior laced with hiking trails.
