As the gateway to the BVI, Tortola’s harbor tends to be bustling, but the general island vibe is one of utter relaxation. With no building taller than a palm tree, Tortola radiates a serene charm that stretches from its white-sand beaches up to its misty rainforest. As the yachting capital of the Caribbean, there are a number of sailing excursions that allow guests to get in on the pristine yachting action.
