About Tortola

Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands and is well known for its powdery white-sand beaches, lush green mountains and sheltered harbour.  It has many protected bays which make it an ideal destination for boaters.  There is also excellent swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and horseback riding to be found on Tortola.

Century old ruins tell the stories of Tortola's history as well as the BVI Folk Museum in Road Town, the capital city.  In Road Town you can also find a variety of shops and restaurants selling everything from local spices, jams, rums, soaps, hand-crafted jewelry and other local crafts.  The cuisine of Tortola is as diversified as the many cultures which make up the region.  The J.R.C. Botanic Gardens in Road Town is also worth a visit.  Tortola also has a few National Parks to explore where you can see traces of a primeval rain forest or evidences of the volcanic formations of the island.

Tortola Vacation Rentals include magnificent ocean view villas, apartments, condos and beachfront vacation homes.  Try renting from an owner for your next BVI holiday.  It is much more affordable than staying in a hotel and private owners offer more amenities and services which are usually included in the cost.
