Snorkeling Underwater, Tortola, British Virgin Island
Venture to Anegada, the BVI’s only coral island, to explore its secluded beaches, wildlife, and underwater coral gardens. Snorkel past swimming stingrays and tropical fish. Marvel at ancient Arawak conch mounds. Glimpse native flowers and rare rock iguanas. Or bask in the calm and undisturbed seaside scenery.
Aerial View Island with Mountains, Tortola, British Virgin Island
Take a ferry or water taxi ride across calm Caribbean waters to any one of the nearby islands. Explore the tucked-away alcoves of Virgin Gorda. Go shopping in the duty-free mecca of St. Thomas. Or relish the rugged scenery and intriguing folklore of Jost Van Dyke, the BVI’s smallest island.
Cast away on a sailboat, catamaran, bareboat or yacht in the charter-boat capital of the Caribbean. Your Virgin Island cruise might take you to hidden coves and pristine cays— or cross Drake Channel past the sea caves of Norman Island, believed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Treasure Island.
Tortola is known for a delicious blend of Caribbean, West Indian and British-inspired flavors. Try local delicacies like fresh Anegada lobster, conch fritters and Johnnycakes (cornmeal flatbread). Eat shepherd’s pie or fish and chips— and don’t miss rotis (Indian-style turnovers filled with curried goat). “Fish and fungi” is the official dish of the BVI, while the rum-based Painkiller from Pusser’s is world-famous.
For authentic Tortolan souvenirs, pick up Caribbean spices, jams, or gemstones, especially black coral and jasper. Stop in Serendipity Bookshop for works by West Indian and BVI authors. Pusser’s Company Store, with locations in both Road Town and the West End, sells nautical accessories, artwork and their super-popular rum.
