Tortola British Virgin Islands Travel Guide

Tortola British Virgin Islands Travel Guide

After exploring some of the American Virgin Islands I was excited to explore the British Virgin Islands, which are made up of 60 smaller islands. Known for beautiful beaches with turquoise water and sailing I spent my short trip to the BVI exploring the main island, Tortola but I’m eager to return to see some of other smaller islands such as Jost van Dyke, Scrub Island and Virgin Gorda.

Brewers Bay

My first stop was exploring the Brewers Beach which has a steep road down, but once you arrive you are rewarded with crystal clear water in a beach that has soft sand and little rocks. This secluded beach is a great spot for snorkeling as there are plenty of fish to see and the water is nice and calm.

Next, I headed to the stunning beautiful Cane Garden Bay where I spent the majority of my time in Tortola as with calm turquoise water, plentiful lounge chairs, and affordable food and drink available right on the beach it was a piece of heaven.

En Route To Road Town

The hilly coastline of Tortola is stunning with tiny islands dotting the water, you will certainly want to make frequent stops while exploring Tortola to take photographs of landscape.

Road Town is a small city, but the perfect spot to charter a sailing tour and try some local restaurants. It was such a wonderful place to explore, next time I plan on booking a boat to take to some of the various islands, but this time around I enjoyed relaxing on boats or swimming in the water. Thank-you BVI, you were even more beautiful than I anticipated!
