The BVI is the ultimate summer destination as it offers experiences for every traveler. Adventure-seekers can enjoy snorkeling at the stunning coral reef at Rosewood Little Dix Bay.

Those who prefer a bit of luxury and relaxation can explore the BVI’s crystal clear blue waters aboard chartered yachts, like Necker Belle.

“The BVI Summer FREEdom Program allows travelers to get the most out of their experience in the BVI,” said Sharon Flax-Mars, Director of the BVI Tourist Board. “The variety of amazing offers from our industry partners gives guests the freedom to explore the BVI in whatever suits them best, whether that’s a chartered yacht for island-hopping or the comfortable luxury of a private villa to accommodate larger groups.”

Traveling to the BVI will be easier than ever with a new Cruise Pier Expansion Project that will expand the existing Cruise Pier in Tortola. Another exciting aspect of this project is the development of Tortola Pier Park, a five-acre commercial and entertainment center.
