Everything a Caribbean vacation should be, the British Virgin Islands offer the best in entertainment in and out of the water. From family-friendly adventures to romantic rendezvous, the British Virgin Islands are where you can let your hair down and unwind any way you choose.

Day 1: City from the Sky


Tortola, the hub of the British Virgin Islands is thronged by tourists as much for its pristine beaches as for its banks and buildings. With more than 60 islands and cays an aerial tour is perhaps the best way to experience the grandeur of BVI. The city also has a great nightlife and you can watch it come alive while you enjoy dinner at the Sky World Restaurant. If you prefer an encounter with nature, take a hike through sub-tropical rainforests ending with a stroll amidst the island’s unique flora and fauna at the botanical gardens. If you're hoping to get that gorgeous summer tan, do indulge in some lazy sunbathing on the beaches of Cane Garden Bay. 

Day 2:  Explore…

Cruise to Spanish Town for a tour of Virgin Gorda. Journey through the mountains on your way to the Coppermine ruins and stop by the Baths at Spring Bay, rumored to be former private bathing areas for the slaves that inhabited BVI in the 1700s. The Baths are an exotic wonder composed of large granite boulders, pools, sea caves and grottos for snorkeling or swimming. End your exploratory day with an elaborate luncheon at a beachside resort. 

Day 3: Swim with the Dolphins

Grab breakfast at the famous Road Town Bakery before catching the ferry to Jost Van Dyke for some scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming.  Feeling adventurous? Take the island dinghy from Trellis Bay to Bellamey Cay, made famous by Pirate Black Sam Bellamey. Of course, no trip to BVI is complete without experiencing the dinner theater, cabaret shows and a swim with the dolphins. The Tortola Dolphin Royal Swim and the Tortola Dolphin Discovery Swim are particularly worth checking out.
