  • WILD LIFE

    On our first day on Tortola we drove around the island getting a feel for the island life. After a few beaches and many scary turns we went to the biggest supermarket of the islands, Bobby's, in Road Town. We parked our car on the biggest car park in town. There was the local car wash next to our car. Some guys had put up a garden pavillion and...

  • local architecture

    Walk along the streets to observe local architecture. The diversity of styles is amazing. You'll also notice shacks right next to fancy mansions. Economic disparity is heartbreaking, but then again this is only normal in developing countries.

  • not too overdeveloped yet, come while it...

    The best part about the BVI is that is not completely ruined by tourism just yet. The majority of tourists come to sail the seas, leaving minimum impact except for just along the beaches of larger bays/cays. As for cruise ships, only smaller ones are allowed in port because of its small stature, meaning that most ships don't stop here and head to...

  • big ships

    The main port in BVI is in Road Town. Cruise ships dock here (although not many, since only smaller ones are allowed). Navy ships also frequent the port. When I returned into Road Town after the end of the week, I saw the Monmouth, a British Navy vessel.

  • grave sites

    Ok, maybe I'm strangely morbid...but I love walking through and photographing cemetaries whenever I'm traveling. It's interesting to compare styles.This one is a small cemetary located in Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke

  • public art

    Observe public art in Trellis Bay...It's not your typical idea of public art, but to locals it is.

  • INTERNET accessibility

    Take advantage of internet whenever you come across it !! Once you start exploring the islands, you'll realize that internet is rare (and extremely expensive) to come across. I've paid anywhere between $5-10 for 15 minutes. Insane! Some islands don't even have phones or electricity, let alone internet. Certain islands monopolize the access. No...

  • lobster, as fresh as it gets

    While in the BVI you must try the lobster at least once. Sure it's expensive but it's amazingly delicious and freshly caught. At some restaurants, the lobster is not caught until you place your order for dinner. Therefore you have to make your dinner reservations in the afternoon and tell the restaurant what you intend on eating.This boat of...

  • get off the boat and walk!!

    As being part of a sailing trip, it's pretty easy to not explore the inlands of each island and just stay on the beach near your boat. I however really enjoyed getting away from the beaches and tourist attractions to explore more of the local life. It's good for you: take a break and walk around to overcome your seasickness and talk to locals away...

  • Views!

    There are beautiful views from many points of the various islands. There's always blue water and green islands and some colourful spots of houses or boats. In the pictures you see Road Town from the hills of Tortola
