Where we are:

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is an idyllic archipelago situated in the Eastern Caribbean around 60 miles from the coast of Puerto Rico and close to the larger US Virgin Islands. There are daily flights to the UK from Antigua, which is only a 40-minute flight from Tortola.

The capital, Road Town, is located on Tortola and is the administrative center of this British Overseas Territory. Many of the other islands are tiny, ranging from private havens for the rich and famous and exclusive resorts to spectacular national parks.

As with the rest of the Caribbean, the climate and lifestyle of Tortola are a major attraction. The temperature ranges between the low twenties and the high thirties and the islands benefit from year-round sunshine. For such a small place there is plenty of history and an abundance of natural beauty in the mountainous interior, but it is the unspoiled coastlines, pristine beaches, and warm ocean that tend to keep people here. It is a world-class haven for water sports, diving, and sailing.
