Tortola island

Ultimate guide (May 2024)
Tortola is the main island of the British Virgin Islands. The beaches are good enough, but not the best in the Caribbean. But anyway, the island is beautiful and worth to spend at least a few days. It is better to have a car, since public transportation is very poor. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #2 of the "Best British Virgin Islands"
