Introduction to Tortola

From Skyworld, situated a quarter of a mile above Road Town (the capital of the BVI), with its breathtaking views over the Caribbean Sea to the almost deserted sandy coves and bays that punctuate the coast line of the beautiful British Virgin Islands, Tortola offers a variety of places to stay and yacht populated marinas.

Brewers Bay, Soper’s Hole, Apple Bay, Long Bay, Carrot Bay and Cane Garden Bay are only a few of the places where you may visit or stop at to photograph yet another stunning view.

Shop in Road Town, Tortola for local hand-made and hand-painted crafts and call in to ‘Pusser’s’ for a cold beer or Painkiller (the famous rum-based island drink).  You can also visit the Callwood Rum Distillery at Cane Garden Bay on Tortola – it’s a working distillery and you can even sample the rum!

Be as lazy or as active as you like … the choice is all yours…

Travelling to the BVI

Travelling from the UK to the British Virgin Islands

The most direct way is from Gatwick to Antigua with British Airways and onwards to Tortola with inter-Caribbean Airways, which is also a non-stop flight. Virgin Atlantic fly from Heathrow to Antigua and the onward flight is with inter-Caribbean Airways to Tortola. Alternatively, BVI Holidays can charter a private aircraft just for you and your party. You will be met when you disembark your transatlantic flight and fast-tracked through immigration and customs and taken to your waiting aircraft.

Travelling from Scotland

Flights from Edinburgh and Glasgow can also be arranged to connect with the Gatwick and Heathrow flights on certain days. Flights from regional airports can be arranged through Paris or Amsterdam to St Maarten and onwards to the BVI.

Travelling from New York, Boston or Miami

If you would like to have a few nights in New York, Boston or Miami before heading to BVI, this can also be arranged. The onward flight is via Puerto Rico which is a 35 minute hop over to the British Virgin Islands or again, a private charter can be arranged.

There are no direct flights to the BVI which is why the islands remain unspoilt, uncrowded and uncommercialised. From the summer of 2023, there will be a flight from Miami direct to Tortola.
