Tortola has a distinct small Island feel. The Island is very green and lush, the perimeter dotted with small bays and secluded beaches. Fabulous anchorages make the BVI the sail boat capital of the Caribbean. There are no large hotels and high rises. No jet skis allowed, keeping only the sounds of surf for your enjoyment.
