Overview

Here is the best guide to these sparsely populated islands. Largely untouched by tourism, they have few high-rise hotels, no time-share condos and no casinos. What they do have is unparalleled beauty, with small picturesque hotels set on beachfronts, in ancient fortresses, in the ruins of sugar mills and on lush mountainsides. Among the other islands are Tortola, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke and Beef. The sailing here cannot be beaten and boats gather in the pristine waters year-round. Diving enthusiasts can visit ghost ships, pinnacles and underwater caves. The authors are Caribbean experts, having written our top-selling Alive Guides to the US Virgin Islands; Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao; and St. Martin, St. Barts & Anguilla. They founded the celebrated Complete Traveller bookstore in New York. In-depth coverage of Virgin Gorda, Tortola, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, and the smaller islands--all unspoiled and beautiful. No casinos, no time-shares, no hi-rise resorts--the BVI are pristine. There are unforgettable resorts, guesthouses and camping spots, however... each one described in detail. The sailing here can't be beat; nor can the diving, with abundant shipwrecks, underwater caves, pinnacles, and marine life. Focuses on shopping, dining, hotels--the elements of primary interest to most travelers. Half a page or more is devoted to each, based on repeated personal visits by the author. Sightseeing, nightlife, sports, getting around, all practical details are covered. Ours is the only full-size, in-depth guide focussing on the BVI alone. [AVAILABLE ONLY IN ADOBE ACROBAT PDF FORMAT.]
