Nestled between Anguilla and Puerto Rico, the unspoilt British Virgin Islands provide a charming pattern of islands where sophisticated hideaways await. There are some 60 islands, islets and cays all fairly close. With regular ferry services between the main islands, it is possible to use your British Virgin Islands holiday to explore the uniqueness of each island and discover tucked away coves with their quirky beach bars.

A holiday on the British Virgin Islands with Abercrombie & Kent mixes exploration and relaxation to every taste to create a truly memorable experience.

The capital of the British Virgin Islands, Road Town, is located on the island of Tortola and is the only town of any size. Tortola is the starting point for British Virgin Island holidays, offering the opportunity for island hopping via ferry links to Peter Island and Virgin Gorda as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands.

On Virgin Gorda, just eight miles in area and a protected National Park, life proceeds at a slow pace. Virgin Gorda has a hilly, dry terrain and is bordered by spectacular white sand beaches and a turquoise sea, ideal for swimming, sailing and diving - a feature of any holiday to the British Virgin Islands. The Baths area is of special note, with its unusual landscape consisting of immense boulders and grottos.

Peter Island is a 1000-acre private island and home to Peter Island Resort. It has a tiny population and offers isolated, palm-fringed beaches, great views out into Sir Francis Drake Channel and excellent picnic spots - bringing a real sense of exclusivity to your Virgin Island holiday

There are direct flights from London to Antigua daily, from where it is a short flight to Beef Island (linked to Tortola by a bridge).

Guest Testimonial

I tracked the Susa group which is the one I really wanted to see - it was almost as if gorillas were tumbling out of every bush, shrub and even at times they seemed to fall from the sky.
