Virgin Islands - Vacation In Paradise by Jim Linskey
Have you been searching for
that one place in the world that you can take a vacation in paradise? The
British Virgin Islands are the vacation paradise of the Caribbean, offering
white sand desolate beaches, secluded coves to sail into, quaint art and
gift shops to quell any shopper's appetite, and fine dining establishments
spread throughout the British Virgin Islands territory.
Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda, Rock on the Beach
Vacation accommodations vary
from small intimate hotels to five star vacation resorts, with all one
could want. The islands also have private homes and rental villas for those
that are looking for a more get-away vacation. The topography of the British
Virgin Islands varies from island to island with Tortola having a mountainous
terrain, to lowly, reef surrounded Anegada with a height above sea level
of only twenty-seven feet!
The British Virgin Islands
are made up from over one hundred islands to form the very unique and diverse
archipelago. The main islands (4) populations range from two hundred residents,
to the capital island of Tortola having around ten thousand people making
up the populace.
Development in the islands
is very tightly controlled, keeping the British Virgin Islands a true vacation
destination with unspoiled islands throughout the territory. While on vacation
in the islands though, you will find all of the modern day conveniences
that one would need, while still enjoying the reality of the island feeling.
Dix Bay, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands, Caribbean
The British Virgin Islands
are known as the Mecca all over the world for sailing and all types of
watersports. The lure of the Caribbean Sea has brought many people to the
islands to spend their vacation time sailing the beautiful waters throughout
the islands. Every type of yacht is available for a vacation charter in
the islands from Mega Yachts to small, family size vacation yachts. If
you're on a landlubber vacation, don't miss out on taking a day sail around
the islands, with a professional crew. A day sail tour is always a memorable
day for many people making the British Virgin Islands their vacation destination.
Land tours are also offered
throughout the British Virgin Islands, with tours to historical sites,
botanical gardens, secluded beaches, and fine restaurants for lunch with
breathtaking views. Vehicle rentals are also readily available for those
that would rather tour the islands at their own pace. Remember that we
drive on the left side of the road in the British Virgin Islands!
Virgin Islands, Boats in the Sea
Being only fifteen hundred
miles from the east coast of the United States makes the British Virgin
Islands very accessible, and there are many airline hubs in Europe with
non-stop flights to the nearby islands of Puerto Rico and Antigua, with
a short commuter flight into the British Virgin Islands. Another means
of transportation that comes to use while on vacation in the islands, is
the ferryboats that run on daily schedules between all of the main islands
to further your vacation options in paradise. Some visitors choose to move
from island to island during their vacation stay, to taste the different
flavors that all the British Virgin Islands have offer.
