Some reading on the Virgin Islands
Spread across the northeastern Caribbean, the Virgin Islands are a kaleidoscope of aquamarine waters, sun-soaked harbours, and pristine white sandy beaches, which are the perfect place to relax while on vacation. The Virgin Islands are also quite hilly, which provides opportunities for scenic hikes and climbs.
The beautiful weather also allows for a variety of nautical activities, such as scuba diving and snorkeling. These are an excellent opportunity to see snorkeling spots in stunning Virgin Islands underwater wildlife.
There is so much to do you won't want to leave. Relax and take in the spectacular scenery; sample the French-Caribbean fusion cuisine; and explore the little villages scattered along the shores of the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
Head for the impressive rock formations of The Baths on Virgin Gorda to see immense boulders, caverns, and natural pools, or let your imagination loose with stories of pirates and treasure grottos on Norman Island, the model for 'Treasure Island'. See sunken shipwrecks and a spectacular range of tropical sea life while diving Anegada, the BVI's unique coral atoll.
White-sand beaches, lush green mountains, and sheltered, yacht-filled harbors identify the island of Tortola, the British Virgins Island's largest and capital island. The past of the West Indies and the present-day BVI combine and mingle with ruins existing alongside the luxury resorts that draw visitors from all around the world.
