The British Virgin Islands are a collection of 60 islands located in the Northeastern Caribbean where it meets the Altantic Ocean. 90 miles to the east of Puerto Rico you will find this group of islands, cays and rocks that has been a crown colony of the United Kingdom for at least four centuries. The islands are not all inhabited however getting around from one to the other promises to be lots of fun through water taxis, ferry, power boats or even by being daring and captaining your own bareboat. Otherwise you can opt for the luxurious sailing holiday of your dreams by booking a crewed charter and letting the captain take you around while you relax on deck with the crew doing all the work around you. With experienced guidance from a captain you can reap the best enjoyment from exploring the British Virgin Islands by visiting great snorkeling locations and beautiful far-off beaches. The British Virgin Islands are ideal for romantic vacations as the natural setting couldn’t be more spot-on. Sandy beaches, tropical gardens, secluded islands, pristine seas and memorable sunrises and sunsets contribute towards a honeymoon or romantic getaway that will carve indelible memories. Amongst the additional places worth a visit are: the Callwood Distillery, The Dungeon, Fort Burt and Thornton Plantation all on the Island of Tortola.
