Map of Beef Island

Located at the eastern tip of Tortola and joined by the Queen Elizabeth bridge, Beef Island is home to the Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS), the main airport for the British Virgin Islands. There are currently no direct international flights to the BVI. Travelers fly into one of the major Caribbean hubs such as Puerto Rico, Antigua, St. Martin or St. Thomas to board connecting flights to this airport.

Yachts with masts exceeding 50' must request permission to enter Trellis Bay. Call the Civil Aviation Department on VHF Channel 16.
