Tortola Hub of British Virgin Islands - Charlotte Amalie
Tortola Hub of British Virgin Islands Tortola is the hub of the British Virgin Islands. People come for its top notch beaches, banks, customs and the best range of hotels, restaurants and nightclubs. The capital, Road Town, really is more picturesque than its dull name suggests. Main St is a pretty stretch of bright wooden and brick buildings to mosey along, as is the peaceful JR O'Neal Botanic Gardens. The curios in the small BVI Folk Museum are fun to check out too, but what really makes Tortola special is its sensational bays and beaches.

The Baths A surreal collection of gigantic granite boulders and one of the Caribbean's most amazing sights This half-mountainous, half-flat 'Fat Virgin' with a scrawny neck lies a few miles northeast of Tortola. Home to just 2500 people, Virgin Gorda is proud home to The Baths - a surreal collection of gigantic granite boulders and one of the Caribbean's most amazing sights. They're strewn across blindingly white palm-lined beaches at the southwestern end of the island. Tide and wave action turns caves into baths and back again, eroding a snorkeller's playground of crevices and pools. It's on the south side of Devil's Bay and is well worth scuba diving in calm waters.

What to Eat and Drink in Virgin Islands - Charlotte Amalie
What to Eat and Drink in Virgin Islands Eat Inevitably, seafood is the dish of choice for most people. Lobster and various fish are available from the small restaurants. There are many restaurants throughout the islands varying from rotis and curries from Guyana and Trinidad to Italian, French and Asian. Drink Rum, not surprisingly, is the drink of choice in the islands. Rum punch and other concoctions can be found at bars on the main beaches and roads. Most beaches do not have any refreshment stands so it would be wise to bring at least water. The Pain Killer is highly recommended. As is the Bushwacker. However, each bar has its own speciality drinks and rum punch in one bar may not be like rum punch in any other one. One drink to be careful with is ...

Music of the Virgin Islands - Charlotte Amalie
Music of the Virgin Islands The music of the Virgin Islands reflects long-standing cultural ties to the island nations to the south as well as to various European colonialists. Though the United States Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands are politically separate, they maintain close cultural ties. From its neighbors, the Virgin Islands has imported various pan-Caribbean genres of music, including calypso from Trinidad and reggae from Jamaica.

A Virgin Island folk song called cariso is also popular, as well as St. Thomas' bamboula. The quadrille is the traditiona...
