British Virgin Islands Geography

The British Virgin Islands is comprised of nearly sixty islands, from larger islands to tiny uninhabited islets.

Most of the islands are volcanic in origin and have a hilly, rugged terrain. Anegada is geologically distinct from the rest of the group and is a flat island composed of limestone and coral.

Mount Sage is a volcanic peak located on the island of Tortola to the southwest of Road Town; it stands at a height of 530 m (1750 ft).

Scattered streams help drain the islands, and coral reefs and white sand beaches are commonplace.
