British Virgin Islands

Situated east of Puerto Rico, The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is one group of islands making up the Virgin Islands. Like many islands in the region, BVI is linked to Great Britain as an overseas territory. There is also a collection of islands in the region known as the American Virgin Islands.

Islands making up the BVI include Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Anegada, and Virgin Gorda. BVI is also surrounded by numerous cays. The majority of the islandís population lives on Tortola where Road Town, the islandís capital, is located.

The following islands are also part of the BVI:
  • Salt Island
  • Peter Island
  • Norman Island
  • Necker Island
  • Great Camanoe
  • Guana Island
  • Mosquito Island
  • Great Thatch
  • Ginger Island
  • Cooper Island
  • Beef Island
The winds blowing through the BVI create warm, comfortable temperatures year round. For example, the lowest temperatures on Road Town during the winter remain in the 80ís (Fahrenheit). The islands receive a little over 40 inches of rain a year, with the most rain falling during the fall. Visitors to the BVI should be aware that hurricanes can hit the islands beginning in June through November.
