Best Things To Do in British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands are one of the premiere sailing destinations in the area with tours and cruises hopping from island to island. Many also choose to sail to the southern islands' popular dive sites like the RMS Rhone. BVI beaches are excellent, especially the shores of Anegada and Cane Garden Bay or Smuggler's Cove on Tortola. Leave the water to try one of the island's painkiller cocktails, and don't fret; you can stay in your beach gear to hit up any one of the local watering holes.
