British Virgin Islands

Cool and calm, the British Virgin Islands are pleasingly unstuffy, especially popular during the winter as a Caribbean holiday destination. One of the wealthiest areas of the Caribbean, the BVIs, as they are often known, are uncrowded and not to mention incredibly beautiful. This winning cocktail has made it a magnet for some of the world's wealthiest and most sophisticated travellers; Richard Branson made his home here in 1978 when he purchased the idyllic Necker Island.   

The waters of the British Virgin Islands are a canvas of multifarious blues and greens, making it a haven for sailing and diving. The dive sites are diverse - coral pinnacles, caves and grottoes for great snorkelling, and sea caverns and shipwrecks for scuba divers. The Caribbean is of course synonymous with sailing, and the BVIs do not let the side down. Hotels and villas often provide private boats, and there are innumerable yacht clubs, marinas and moorings if you're sailing in; as well as ramshackle bars on perfect white beaches waiting to service fresh juice and rum punch when you need to pause for a while. Watersports and fishing are also excellent, though disruptive watersports such as loud jet skis are banned so there is nothing to distract from the peace and quiet.

Away from the water, the British Virgin Islands have beautiful national parks and lots of history to explore - from disused copper mines to forts, burial sites and old plantations that were once at the centre of the British sugar trade that boomed during the 17th and 18th Centuries.
