The British Virgin Islands are all relatively small. There are four main land masses where the majority of the population lives. Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada are the main islands – although each is surrounded by smaller outcrops too.

The vast golden sandy beaches are bordered by impossibly turquoise waters. And the huge windswept lagoons mean there are plenty of places to ride.
