British Virgin Islands
British Virgin Islands — Pirate lore, epic beaches, some of the best sailing in the Caribbean, and a refreshingly laid-back vibe make the 60-plus underdeveloped islands and cays of the British Virgin Islands (BVI for short) a paradise for seafarers and landlubbers alike. Visitors will be regaled with tales of Blackbeard’s buccaneers (Dead Chest Island, supposedly where the pirate marooned his men with nothing but a bottle of rum, is now a popular snorkeling spot) and awed by the island’s briny pastimes (sailing, scuba diving, swimming), lively tropical watering holes, and Crusoe-esque hideaways.   

Why Go

To become a castaway on an unspoiled island, dive legendary reefs and wrecks, and relax over rum cocktails at reggae-centric beach bars.
