British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands are a yachtsmans paradise. There are 60 pristine, unique islands that comprise the British Virgin Islands. These unspoilt, lovely islands are as interesting as the people and their culture.
Don’t miss these quaint beaches, the beautiful aquamarine waters and especially the vibrant nightlife. In the beginning the 50 islands of the British Virgin Islands were swarming with pirates and smugglers that took refuge in the protected waters and kept guard from secluded mountain look-outs. Some think there is still a lot of buried treasure hidden somewhere among the islands.
