Situated at the northwestern end of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea, the British Virgin Islands boast plenty of incredible outdoor activities.
From hiking and bouldering to kayaking and snorkeling, there are plenty of incredible activities to try out.
Among the most popular activities, however, is hiking. With such small distances and such gorgeous scenery, it makes a lot of sense to explore on foot.
Aside from climbing Sage Mountain, half-day hikes to Shark’s Bay, also on Tortola, are quite popular. So too are day-long hikes to “the Baths”, one of the many boulder-strewn beaches of Virgin Gorda.
Finally, hiking the 8-kilometers (5-mile) sunset loop on Peter Island is a great way to get out onto the trails at a different time of day and experience a sublime sunset over the Caribbean Sea.
The climate in the British Virgin Islands is subtropical, with warm weather year round. The average daily temperature is about 30 °C (86 ºF). September to November is the wettest part of the year. From June to November is hurricane season.
Most trips to the British Virgin Islands begin with a flight into Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS). From here, it is easy to transfer by air, ferry or van to the start of the trip.
