The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is one of our favourite destinations in the Caribbean for island hopping. From the four main islands of the archipelago (Virgin Gorda, Tortola, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke), a multitude of smaller islands is yours to explore. Most islands are left wild and uninhabited. The BVI is a paradise of hills swathed in tropical scrubland, powdery white sand, natural pools beneath giant boulders and kaleidoscopic reefs.
“Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.”
A sense of adventure and discovery is what makes these islands so special. It is no surprise the BVI inspired Robert Louis Stevenson’s epic novel, Treasure Island. There is mystery and intrigue in the untamed landscape and deep mountain caves. That said, the BVI is also a place to pause, reflect and stay still. The restorative power of these islands will repair and renew if you give them time. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, come to the Virgin Islands to “live in the sunshine, swim in the sea and drink the wild air.”
The best way to experience the BVI is with a combination of island-hopping adventure and secluded island living.
