Tortola is one of the British Virgin Islands’ best kept secrets. As the largest island in the British Virgin Island chain, Tortola is often overlooked by tourists who instead travel to other parts of the Caribbean such as Puerto Rico or Antigua and Barbados. They end up missing out on the true island charm, however, as Tortola is home to a wide range of true island attractions. For vacationers that want to immerse themselves in the island life, consider a villa rental in Tortola. These luxurious accommodations are much more relaxing than the larger and more commercialized hotels, and offer visitors a chance to have some privacy for spending their honeymoons or anniversaries together.
Sample Island Cuisine
Throughout the Caribbean, visitors can find a huge range of cuisine that spans from traditional island flavors to Italian, Mexican, Chinese and everything in between! If you really want to get a feel for the island life, it’s recommended that you give some local dishes a try. Most of these dishes are created with locally grown and collected spices and herbs, giving you the freshest and most vibrant flavors possible. Seafood is highly popular, but so is chicken and many pastries. Marinades are sweet and tangy and really make you feel at home on this island paradise. Enjoy your meal as a gentle ocean breeze blows past your table, and listen to the many tropical birds and frogs singing in the distance.
Land a Trophy Sport Fish
For those who love the adventure of sport fishing, the Caribbean offers anglers a wide range of some of the most highly sought after marine fish. Charter a boat from one of the many docks and harbors around the island and set out after your next trophy. Whether you want to remember your fish in photographs only, or would like to arrange to have it shipped home, there are many options for keeping the one that didn’t get away. Wahoo, marlin, swordfish, mahi-mahi and other sport fish can be found in the waters throughout the British Virgin Islands.
