Escape from civilization and take a trip to British Virgin Islands, a collection of 60 small islands and cays in the Virgin Islands archipelago. Although British territory, the island is not noticeably British, offering a quiet and serene vibe that lives on despite a major tourism boom. With most of its islets uninhabited, British Virgin Islands remain a paradise for sailing, snorkeling, lazing on a deserted beach, and exploring sleepy seaside villages.
