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.
