Photos of the British Virgin Islands
The BVI's consist of more than 60 islands and cays, which are part of a Caribbean archipelago known as the British West Indies. The verdant green hills of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and other islands feature dozens of exquisite, white sand beaches, and are a stark contrast to Anegada, having an elevation of only 28' and which might be described as a very big beach!
Sailing, boating, scuba diving, snorkelling, beach combing and sun bathing come as naturally as breathing. The constant trade winds, hundreds of coves, bays, breathtaking beaches and anchorages lend themselves to sailing, water sports and Caribbean yacht charters.
At the risk of trotting out a hackneyed phrase, the British Virgin Islands are truly an "island paradise". If you close your eyes and imagine a Caribbean sailing vacation ... odds are you are envisioning our beaches!
Where are the British Virgin Islands?
This tiny Caribbean nation is located east of the USVI and about 60 miles east of Puerto Rico. See our map of the Caribbean for location as well as individual maps of the BVI. Coordinates for Road Town, Tortola are situated at (approximately) 18.26 North, 64.37 West. See British Virgin Islands information for more facts and details.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. With 71 pages and 507 photographs, our BVI photo gallery speaks volumes! New pictures will be added as and when possible. Our plan is to provide images of each island, including photos of beaches, events and points of interest. More pictures will be appearing regularly!
New photos and picture gallery pages coming soon!
