A string of islands located east of Puerto Rico and the U.S.Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands are a perfect destination for lounging on the beach, getting down in the dirt, or taking off with the wind.
Tortola is one of the most scenic islands in the EasternCaribbean. Aside from the beautiful landscape, its nearness to islands such asVirgin Gorda, Jost van Dyke, and Anegada makes it a perfect cruise vacation spot. In fact, island hopping is one of Tortola’s main attractions.
Most cruisers will agree that a visit to Tortola would not be complete without a ferry ride over to explore the Baths at Virgin Gorda. TheBaths is a natural collection of giant granite boulders, sandy beaches, and sheltered sea pools and grottos formed over time from volcanic rock. TheDevil’s Bay Trail guides visitors through the boulders to Devil’s Bay, where you can enjoy some snorkeling or just relax on the beautiful beach. Water shoes are encouraged for this walk. If going on your own, do be sure to coordinate the time of the return ferry trip so you do not miss the cruise ship!
Just like many Caribbean islands, you can go shopping in those quaint market streets like Main Street. Where you can get authentic island crafts and souvenirs. Or go sightseeing along the beautiful streets lined with brightly colored British colonial houses.
For an authentic Caribbean bite, take advantage of Tortola’s plentiful street food options. Throughout the island, you will find small food trucks serving up all kinds of Caribbean fare, from home-cooked chicken and rice to roti and saltfish.
Cruisers visiting the island can expect to have bucket loads of fun. Besides touring the scenic coasts, hiking the lush mountainside of the island, the warm and friendly nature of this tropical gem makes it a top destination in the Caribbean.
