From deserted and nearly deserted islands to perfect beaches and the best beach parties in the Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands have a little something for everyone. Which island is perfect for you?
Scrub Island: Find protected coves, nature trails, stunning views of the British Virgin Islands, shallow coral reefs, brilliant blue water, and a single resort on Scrub Island.
Cooper Island: Escape to an almost-deserted island with white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, a handful of privately owned homes, a small beach club, and lots shipwrecks just offshore.
Norman Island: Search for buried treasure, deep caves, wild goats, shipwrecks, hidden bays, and an open-air restaurant on an uninhabited island.
Peter Island: Relax on a private island that’s home to six white-sand beaches, quiet snorkeling spots, a soothing spa, a beachside jacuzzi, a steel drum band, and plenty of happy hour options.
Keel Point: Watch for pink flamingoes, dark-moving spots under the water, and boats far offshore from the least populated British Virgin Island.
Frenchman’s Cay: Stay on the West End of Tortola longer than expected once you find a hillside dotted with gingerbread cottages and bougainvillea, Sage Mountain looming in the background, sailboats bobbing in the harbor, and a cool breeze off the water near stand-alone cottages.
The Baths: Explore one of the most gorgeous spots in the Caribbean, where you’ll find an endless white-sand beach, swaying palm trees, teal water, and giant granite boulders.
Jost Van Dyke: Sail to the best place to party in the Caribbean, where you’ll find calypso music, sandy floored beach bars, soggy money, and strong painkillers.
