A while back, I planned a trip to the British Virgin Islands in October of this year. And while the world is a bit up in the air right now, we are still planning on heading out on vacation. If you’re eager to get out and see the world, consider heading to the British Virgin Islands.
Here’s what you should do if you’re planning a vacation there. Add these items to your sand bucket list!
The British Virgin Islands Tortola: Excursions
One of my favorite parts about vacations (other than relaxing) is going on tours of the area. It’s a great way to truly take in the landscape. If you are looking for things to do in the British Virgin Islands, I recommend hiring a charter boat for a snorkeling expedition. It’s actually relatively affordable to do so, and your kids will be left with so many wonderful memories.
If hiring a charter isn’t quite your speed, try going on an island-hopping beer and wine tour. Tickets start at $150 per person, and you travel around through the islands all day sampling all of the local alcohol. And you can really enjoy yourself because they will make sure that you make it home to your hotel safely.
Looking for a more chill way to spend your day? Sign up for an incredible picnic lunch on Tortola Beach. Travel arrangements will be made to the beach if you aren’t on the island, and you have all day long to enjoy one of the most gorgeous coastlines in the entire world. Packages start at $90 per person. Hopefully, some of the words in the article will motivate you to book your picnic!
The British Virgin Islands Tortola: Baths
The Baths is one of the best locations in the entire world for snorkeling thanks to the calm, crystal clear waters, and tons of ocean wildlife. You will need to charter a boat or plane to reach the location, as it is on the island of Virgin Gouda, but there are plenty of day trips that offer this option. Exploring in these vast ocean pools and grottos will definitely be the highlight of your day.
The British Virgin Islands Tortola Resorts
There are tons of incredible places to stay in an area like the British Virgin Islands, but some of my favorite include Sebastians on The Beach (this is quaint and oh so cozy!), The Emerald Beach Resort, and the Anegada Beach Club. All of these locations have plenty for everyone to do!
The British Virgin Islands Tortola: With Kids
Bring your kiddos along to BVI for just as much fun, because there are TONS for kids to do! Almost every beach on the island is family-friendly, so there is plenty of swimming to be had. Additionally, there is a Dolphin Discovery Cove on Tortola, so your kids can swim with the dolphins if that is something that interests them! On the weekends at Norman Islands, there is a “pirate night” where actors dress up. It’s great fun and a wonderful environment for the kids. Nanny Cay Marina is also great for families with kids, as there are things for the adults, and plenty for the kids.
