Snorkelling in the British Virgin Islands
Some of the best snorkelling anywhere is in the British Virgin Islands. The water is so incredibly clear you barely even need to get off the boat to see dozens of varieties of amazing tropical fish and coral reefs covering every colour of the rainbow. Bring or rent a mask and some flippers and walk in off the beach or jump in off the boat. The beautiful world below the surface will amaze you. Here are a few more suggestions.
