Details

The British Virgin Islands, about 70 (mostly uninhabited) islands and cays, are one of the Caribbean's most popular destinations.

Fought over for centuries, they were finally controlled by the British in the mid-1600s, and later became an official British colony.

Tourism is the major business, and the BVI are closely associated with the economy and culture of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Steeped in the history of the British Navy, the islands are ringed by shipwrecks; the most famous of these - The RMS Rhone - is now a national marine park, and a favorite scuba diving point.

Road Town, the capital city, is crammed with local markets and boutiques, restaurants, government buildings, and cruise ship passengers.

Ferry service to the outer-islands is convenient and economical, but outer-island air service is limited.
