As the capital of the British Virgin Islands, Tortola is the largest and most developed island in the BVIs. There are plenty of opportunities for things to see and do here, and even though the island has most of the action in comparison to the other BVIs, it can still provide a quiet and peaceful Caribbean getaway to visitors as well.
Tortola offers up a unique mix of water activities, shopping, fine dining, and history. For people who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, the island has plenty to do. A day spent at the beach can mean swimming, snorkeling, or just soaking up the sun on the beach. Fishing and scuba diving are other popular activities on the island, and there are lots of secluded bays to anchor in and enjoy the day. Main Street in Road Town is the place to be for shopping. Jewelry, clothing, spices, jams, and more can found in the local shops here, and whether you’re buying or just browsing, its lots of fun. Meals on Tortola can also be an adventure, and you have your choice of dining in an elegant setting at a four-star restaurant, or enjoying fresh cooked seafood at a quaint diner. History buffs will enjoy the museums on the island, and Fort Burt is worth a visit as well. Clearly, Tortola is not lacking for things to do, and visitors to the island can fill their days with activities…or they can just lounge and enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle.
A range of accommodations are available on the island, including resort hotels, private villas, and even campgrounds. Staying in a hotel or at a resort is the way to go for people who like to be in the thick of the action, and this is also nice as many provide concierge services for guests. Private villas, on the other hand, offer guests much more seclusion, as well as amenities of a full home. Whichever route you decide to go with accommodations, you’ll be positioned to enjoy a great Caribbean vacation that includes the beach, surf, and so much more.
