There are always plenty of fun things to do in the British Virgin Islands whether on land or on (or in) the water. New and exciting activities are always being added.

Wing foiling is exciting and said to be easier than windsurfing. You can experience Wing foiling at Bitter End on Virgin Gorda. Bitter End offers a vast array of water sports including stand-up paddleboarding, small boat sailing, kayaking to name but a few.

If you like horse riding, you can do this on Anegada. Prices start at $70.00 per person for a short ride and Francis Family Farm also offers Early Bird Sunrise rides and Full Moon rides too.

Of course….while you are on Anegada, you need to experience kiteboarding with the Tommy Gaunt Kitesurfing School located on the beach at the Anegada Beach Club. Tommy also offers wing foiling, wakeboarding, standup paddleboard tours through the mangroves and many other exciting activities.

Tortola is the main island in the BVI and here you can do many interesting things. The Original Virgin Canopy Tour is similar to zip-lining, only safer and much quieter, affording spectacular views over Tortola and some of the other islands in the BVI.

A visit to the Callwood Rum Distillery on Cane Garden Bay is a must. It is the oldest working rum distillery in the Caribbean and for a very small amount, you will be given an interesting tour and the chance to sample several different rums.

If you would like to try Bouldering or are already an expert, Virgin Gorda is the place to be. The gigantic volcanic boulders next to the famous Baths prove a challenge for many Boulderers and Guavaberry Spring Bay on Virgin Gorda is where you should stay. It’s a great property, set in tropical gardens and only a few minutes walk from a beautiful white sand beach. They also provide complimentary crash pads for their guests.

There are of course plenty of amazing places to snorkel in and around the BVI and excellent dive operators too. If you would like to do something a bit different, try SNUBA. This is somewhere between snorkelling and diving and safe for all the family to do. You can do this at Leverick Bay on Virgin Gorda.

Another must is a visit to the Bubbly Pool on Jost van Dyke. You can reach the island via the ferry from Tortola which runs regularly throughout the day. Stop at Foxy’s for drinks and nibbles and continue along the path to the pool which is like a natural hot tub with waves crashing in.

If you enjoy hiking, the BVI has an abundance of trails and hills to wander and climb. Mount Sage on Tortola is a moderate, well marked hike affording spectacular views from the highest point on Tortola. On Virgin Gorda you can hike to Gorda Peak for even more breathtaking views.

The British Virgin Islands offers all of the above plus sailing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, diving, snorkelling and many more interesting and diverse activities. Of course….you can just lie on the beach with a cocktail and relax.
