Unlike their nearby American cousins, these Virgin Islands are not a shopper’s paradise, but one for nature lovers looking for quiet getaways, empty beaches, and a maritime atmosphere. Families will find that kids can romp and enjoy local life on some of the safest islands in the Caribbean.

Although there are over 50 islands in the chain, only a handful have facilities for travelers. Tortola, named for the turtle doves found here, is the largest island with only 21 square miles. Don’t let distance fool you, however. Because of steep hills, a car trip around or across the island is a slow undertaking.

Virgin Gorda (the fat virgin), the second largest island in the BVI. The Baths, Virgin Gorda’s most photographed attraction, can be reached by land or sea. Left by volcanic upheaval, The Baths are formed by giant boulders that provide a picturesque contrast to the white beach. Duck between boulders to enter the sea cave where your family can wade in the cool, shady baths.
