The British Virgin Islands are a chain of 60 stunningly beautiful islands that can be found in the heart of the Sir Francis Drake Channel in the Caribbean. The BVI is known as a sailor's paradise and rightly so. Each island is unique and offers visitors breath-taking scenery and the most beautiful beaches imaginable.
Most of the sixty islands of the British Virgin Islands are uninhabited and are an absolute treasure trove of soft white sands, coral reefs and crystal clear calm waters. Just fifteen of the islands are in fact inhabited and they each have luxury BVI Villas. The area is also famous for scuba diving as there are many dive sites and shipwrecks to discover.
British Virgin Islands are one of the safest places in the Caribbean to visit. There is virtually no crime here and it has also avoided any element of overexposure or over commercialism.
As the islands are surrounded by a large body of very sheltered water, the sea is always calm and is ideal for snorkelling, fishing, sailing and all kinds of water-sports. Known worldwide as natures little secrets and with good reason, the islands offer the most incredible scenery, with hundreds of hidden bays and coves, naturally unspoiled beaches and wonderfully calm turquoise waters to swim in.
Many of our BVI Villa Rentals are located on the stunning islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Peter Island, Neckar Island, Guana Island and Scrub Island.
Virgin Gorda is one of the most easterly islands and has a wonderful gentle pace of life hard to find anywhere in the world today.

The Baths is a national Park and a natural wonder of the world with a collection of massive granite boulders which form beautiful pools.
