British Virgin Islands

 

Horseshoe reef is approximately 17 miles long and is the third largest reef in the world. Located around Anegada Island the reef is a divers and snorkelers dream. The reefs found all over the BVI have fascinating formations and as you float peacefully over them, you will be dazzled by the bright kaleidoscope of colours.  Weaving in and out of the corals you will see parrot fish, trumpet fish, groupers, angelfish and many more. Hawks bill turtles and rays gracefully swim in these waters and lobsters can be found hiding amongst the coral rock. If you are a diver then you will love the spectacular site of the R.M.S. Rhone, shipwrecked off Black Rock Point by a hurricane on 29th October 1867. Claiming 124 lives the ship exploded into two and now rests on the sea bed in two locations, one at 30feet and the other at 90feet.  The RMS Rhone wreck is known for being the best dive site in the Caribbean.

The British Virgin Islands are enchanted by simple pleasures, stunningly beautiful islands and endless coral reefs. The local people are very friendly, laid back and always willing to share a story and a drink with you.  Beach bars are a great place to sit in the shade and sip a refreshing drink while you listen to the Caribbean rhythms of a steel band. At sunset take a stroll down the powdery white beach and let the gentle waves carry your normal hectic lifestyle and worries far out to sea.
