The British Virgin Islands located in the Northeastern Caribbean is an archipelago of 60 islands, cays and islets offering a myriad of holiday activities. Lodge at a beachside cottage or luxurious villa, an international hotel or a resort that is the last word in understated elegance. Snorkel with exotic fish on coral reefs. Scuba dive on the wrecks of sunken galleons. Relax amid lush vegetation in National Parks and botanic gardens.
