10 Wonders that Only Exist in the British Virgin Islands

Beautiful crystal clear waters, white sugar sand and palm trees filled with coconuts are the beautiful things that make up the British Virgin Islands. If you have the opportunity to visit this tropical oasis, here are a few places your not going to want to miss.

If you’re in the BVI, you must stop at Virgin Gorda and explore the Baths (Some even refer to it as the 8th wonder of the world)! Surrounded by beautiful clear water, grotto’s and the incredible boulders provide beautiful scenery to the already stunning shore as well as serving as a fantastic exploit. Come prepared with water shoes for the tough-ish terrain traveling through the tight boulders.

Lovers Tip ♥ it is well worth it to get there early, before the crowds as it can get quite crowded with tourist in the afternoon. We also recommend moving a little bit North to check out Spring Bay, which offers a similar experience, but with much more privacy.

Take the tunnels from the Bath’s and make your way to Devils Bay. Another tropical oasis that can only be described as a beautiful, sultry, paradise.

3. Have a Beer At The Soggy Dollar Bar, Jost Van Dyke.

Home of the Original Pain Killer, the rum drink of the Caribbean. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in the open air, sea-side restaurant. The beach is beautiful, the hammocks are comfy, the music is great, and the food and drinks are awesome.

4. Rhone National Marine Park

A must do dive. The RMS Rhone is a wreck dive off Salt Island in the BVI. A nineteenth century Royal Mail steamer that sank during a Hurricane with the loss of several lives. The wreck is impressive and so much of it is still visible. The deepest part is 80′ so you can spend plenty of time checking out the entire wreck.

5. Explore Norman Island Caves

Incredible place for snorkeling. The fishes is extraordinary and the caves are really an unforgettable experience. Water was calm and the underwater structure is amazing. The treasure here is the crystal clear, calm water.

Lovers tip ♥ bring water shoes!

Located 2 minutes boat ride away from Scrub Island, this site is named as a result of a diver losing a diamond ring here about 10 years ago (never found!). Come explore the hidden treasures and colorful fish in this beautiful tropical reef and heyy, you might even find that diamond 😉

8. Explore Anegada Island, Cow Wreck Beach

Anegada or the “Drowned Land,” is the only coral island in the Virgin Islands’ volcanic chain.

Striking coral reefs surround the island, including Horseshoe Reef, the Eastern Caribbean’s third largest continuous reef! There’s more to do than just water exploring, the island also has an amazing nature trail at Bones Bight where you can catch a glimpse of the rock iguanas native to the island and discover exotic birds endemic to the island.

9. Explore The Indians

The Indians site is a natural treasure where you can visit the home of many beautiful sea creatures. Including beautiful coral fish, octopus, squid, stingrays and turtles!  Snorkeling the Indians is truly a great adventure!
Lovers Tip ♥ get there early enough before the cruise ships dock in so you can get the total experience without too many humans in the water. We suggest 11:00 am as the ideal time to snorkel this beauty.

We have personally been to Buck island and enjoyed everything about it as described in our St. Croix article! You definitely want to do a snorkeling tour and follow the unique signs underwater that show you where all the neat stuff is 🙂

Here you can find all the sea critters that are expected in beautiful tropical waters! We even saw a shark! After your snorkeling fill, explore Buck Island! There is a nature trail that takes you to the top where you can see the beautiful panoramic view of the island. Its gorgeous.

Lovers Tip♥ Wear water shoes! The island is full of sand spurs and they can be painful!
