The Bri­tish Vir­gin

Is­lands con­sists of more than 36 is­lands, in­clud­ing more than 20 that are un­in­hab­ited. Tor­tola is the largest, o er­ing some of the best yacht­ing and sail­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in the Caribbean.

In Road Town, the Bri­tish ter­ri­tory’s cap­i­tal, the

Vir­gin Is­lands Folk Mu­seum show­cases ar­ti­facts from the days of plan­ta­tions and slav­ery, as well as relics from the wreck of the Bri­tish ship Rhone, which sank in 1867.

Mount Sage Na­tional Park sur­rounds the is­land’s high­est point, Mount Sage. The park con­sists of ele­phant-ear vines, ma­hogany trees, philo­den­drons and ferns. The Henry Adams walk­ing trail leads past some of the Caribbean’s old­est trees and o ers splen­did bird-watch­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Af­ter­wards, re­lax with a fruity rum drink. Rum has been man­u­fac­tured on the is­land for decades and is used to liven up all sorts of con­coc­tions and cock­tails.

Taste of Road Town

Chefs in the Bri­tish Vir­gin Is­lands take full ad­van­tage of the wealth of fresh seafood and pro­duce at their dis­posal, but they are also likely to give their dishes an el­e­gant Euro­pean twist. For ex­am­ple, a pop­u­lar en­trée at the Red Rock Restau­rant is crab-stuffed salmon in a creamy saf­fron sauce.
