Concocted of over 40 beautiful islands and hidden in the depths of the Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands provides the desired summer location of scorching heats buffered by cool, steady winds. Belonging to British territories, the islands have little to do with anything British, especially the weather. With an absurd amount of beach, there are hundreds of protected salt-rimmed bays just waiting to be explored.
The British Virgin Islands are made up of the main islands Tortola, Anegada, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke, along with over many other smaller islands and cays. Only 15 of the islands are inhabited. Tortola is the main island, holding most of the population and trade, therefore making seem rather serious in its manner. However, the nightlife under a full moon is something that needs to be experienced. The prettiest out of the islands is Virgin Gorda. Favourited among the rich and famous, this island is picturesque and still innocent from the remains left in the wake of tourism.
To experience these beautiful islands in their fullest splendour, a yacht is definitely recommended. With such steady winds, the British Virgin Islands are a sailing fantasy. Every mariner worth his sea-salt sails there. Perfect winds and pristine waters, with most of the islands, whether they are inhabited or deserted, are just begging to be explored.
