The British Virgin Islands, or BVI, are a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean, to the east of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, and are part of the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles.
The BVI consist of the main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, along with over 50 other smaller islands and cays. Some 16 of the islands are inhabited. The capital, Road Town, is on Tortola, the largest island.
Tourism accounts for nearly half of the islands' national income. The islands are a popular destination for US citizens. Visitors frequent the numerous white sand beaches, visit The Baths on Virgin Gorda, snorkel the coral reefs near Anegada, or experience the well-known bars of Jost Van Dyke. The BVI are known as one of the world's greatest sailing destinations, and charter sailboats are a very popular way to visit less accessible islands.
Eye of the Wind will sail among these islands with stops along the way to visit beautiful beaches, go swimming or snorkeling, and enjoy the active beach bar scene. You will be able to help in sailing the ship is you wish, or simply relax and enjoy the sun, sea and ocean breezes. Bring a book or two, and be prepared to unwind.
Road Town, Tortola, BVI
Road Town is the Capital of the British Virgin Islands. The town encircles the harbor like an amphitheater, with buildings stretching up into the surrounding hillsides. Road Town’s beautiful harbor is a busy center of island life and marine activity in the idyllic archipelago known as the BVI. Beneath its placid tropical exterior, Road Town is very much an international city, at the crossroads of a vigorous Caribbean maritime culture of upscale tourism and offshore finance.
