  • 1780 Lower Estate Sugar House in Tortola

    1. 1780 Lower Estate Sugar Works

    For the history buffs or those who want to learn more about the BVI's past, the 1780 Lower Estate Sugar House is a hidden gem. The relatively unknown museum on Tortola is full of artifacts and exhibits showcasing over a century of history in the BVI.
  • Virgin Gorda in the BVI

    2. Explore Virgin Gorda by Land

    If you need a break from exploring the waters, hire a taxi or rent a Jeep to enjoy the ultimate Caribbean adventure on Virgin Gorda. With majestic views and delicious restaurants, the picturesque island will provide unforgettable memories.
  • A spotted eagle ray in the water

    3. Find Spotted Eagle Rays

    The consistently-warm waters of the BVI make for a perfect home for spotted eagle rays. The elusive rays can be found in Benures Bay on the northern side of Norman Island. Snorkelers and divers can explore this location and see squid, tarpon, turtles, and other types of rays.
  • A tuna in the water

    4. Fish the South Drop

    While most people head to the North Drop off Anegada for some great fishing, the local experts say that the South Drop is the place to go. With clear waters and fish that are eager to bite, you're sure to reel in something memorable.

    5. Paddle Through Hans Creek

    On a flat day, your paddle board can be your best friend! Take a journey through the largest remaining pristine mangrove-forst network in the BVI: Hans Creek. Only a few minutes away from Trellis Bay, Surf School BVI allows you to meander through the water, catching glimpses of sea birds, turles, barracuda, bonefish, and shark pups.
  • Find Your Favorite Hidden Gem

    Visitors return to the BVI year after year, not only because of the most popular sights and attractions, but also the lesser-known, off-the-beaten-path destinations. Each of the islands has something different to offer, so grab your kids, your friends, or your family, book a charter boat and begin your island journey!
