British Virgin Islands

Health & safety

Dangers & annoyances

The BVIs have little street crime. Nevertheless, the usual rules of cautious conduct for travelers apply here. Drivers should be careful of wandering cattle, especially at night. Mosquitoes and sand fleas are an unfortunate part of life; you’ll want good bug spray with you.
