Road Town, located on Tortola, is the capital of the British Virgin Islands. Get some historical perspective at St. Williams Roman Catholic Church and Callwood Distillery. 1780 Lower Estate Sugar Works Museum and North Shore Shell Museum will appeal to museum buffs. There's still lots to do: cast your line with Bad Dog Charters, shop like a local with Aragorn's Studio, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and take in the waterfront activity at Tortola Pier Park.

British Virgin Islands travel guide

Geologic Formations · Bodies of Water · Beaches
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.
