British Virgin Islands

It should come as no surprise that English is the official language of the British Virgin Islands, or BVIs, as they are known by locals. The terrain of many of the more than 40 islands and keys is incredibly flat. In fact, Anegada is known as the Drowned Island because its elevation is so exceedingly low. Other islands feature steep volcanic terrain, so there’s a little bit of something for everyone. No major airport serves the territory, and most people arrive via charter flights out of Puerto Rico. One of the best ways to experience the BVIs is by renting a sailboat or motorboat. Just don’t do so during hurricane season. Surfing is wildly popular here, and Josiah’s and Apple Bay beaches afford the best opportunities. As for cuisine, fresh seafood and locally produced rum are par for the course.
