Among Tortola’s sharp peaks and bougainvillea-clad hillsides you’ll find a mash-up of play places. Take surfing lessons, join fire jugglers at a full-moon party, dive on shipwrecks, and by all means go sailing amid the festive surrounding isles.
More than 80% of the BVI’s 28,000 citizens live and work on Tortola. It's the BVI’s governmental and commercial center, plus its air and ferry hub. It's also the Caribbean's charter-boat capital. Beyond the busy capital of Road Town, groovy beaches and West Indian settlements full of local flavor await.
