Cool and calm, the British Virgin Islands are pleasingly unstuffy, especially popular during the winter as a Caribbean holiday destination. The archipelago comprises sixty islands, 43 of them uninhabited and all heartbreakingly beautiful with sensational coral reefs, islets and cays. The waters of the British Virgin Islands are a canvas of multifarious blues and greens, making it a haven for sailing and diving. 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 serve fresh juice and rum punch. 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.
