Caribbean Dreams – The Virgin Island Travel Guide (cont’d)
About the only place you’ll see much evidence of tourism is at the most famous spot on Virgin Gorda, called the Baths. Their grand granite boulders frame the most perfect blue Caribbean you could desire.
The best things about the Virgin Islands are picnics on deserted beaches, sunset sails in tiny boats and morning walks where you won’t run into another soul.
The British Virgin Islands? you must visit.
The largest of the BVIs, Tortola is only 21 miles long. It’s name means ‘turtledove’ in Spanish. The BVI capital, Road Town is here, as well as a huge marina filled with hundreds of yachts that account for half of the BVIs ‘tourist beds.’
Home to some of the most spectacular resorts in the BVIs, Virgin Gorda packs a world of beauty into a mere 8 ? miles. It has two national parks, both great for hiking.
Although this stretch of land is within sight of the other islands, you can easily overlook the flat, sandy island that looks like a giant beach and feels like the end of the earth.
The best bits?.
Free spirits just love drifting from one island to the next through the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
Eye popping gorgeous setting.
The Caribbean doesn’t get any better than this. You can truly find that island getaway and snag your own private strand of beach.
When you’re at Foxy’s or Bomba’s beach bar, you may encounter Jack Nicholson sipping on a cocktail or Eric Clapton jamming the night away with a few mates. Honestly.
