BVI Maps
British Virgin Islands Map
The archipelago of the British Virgin Islands, also known as the BVI, consists of 60 islands of all shapes, sizes and terrain. Mostly mountainous, and volcanic in origin with Tortola having the highest peak at 1750 feet above sea level and the "drowned island" of Anegada barely breaking the seas surface with its highest point of only 28 feet. All of the islands are surrounded by some of the most beautiful waters to be found, with stunning beaches, excellent diving, great sailing and every other water sports activity imaginable. The BVI is a sailing paradise with a host of excellent anchorages and out of the way coves with stunning sunrise and sunsets to start and end each day in paradise.

Tortola Map
Tortola, the largest and most mountainous of all the islands also has the most inhabitants at around twenty thousand people. Driving the roads can be challenging at times as the narrow roads are cut into the mountainous hillsides, winding with hairpin turns and steep inclines. Most of the beautiful beaches are spread all along the North shore and offer spectacular views and water sports activities. Coves and anchorages also abound as you travel on or around Tortola. Formed by volcanic activity its highest peak is Mount Sage at 1750 feet. Tortola is located at north 18.25 and west 64.3612 and is 12 miles (19 km) long and 3 miles (5 km) wide.

Virgin Gorda Map
Virgin Gorda is the third largest (after Tortola and Anegada) and the second most populous island of the British Virgin Islands. A very different terrain from most of the other islands, having huge boulders strewn about the island, balanced precariously on the shores and hillsides. Rainfall on Virgin Gorda tends to be less than the other islands in the chain. Reef fringed coves and white sand beaches are found on the North shore and in beautiful Gorda Sound at the eastern end of the island. Located at approximately 18 degrees, 48 minutes North, and 64 degrees, 30 minutes West, it covers an area of about 8 square miles (21 sq. km). Population is around 2,000.

Jost Van Dyke Map
At roughly 8 square kilometers, Jost Van Dyke is the smallest of the four main islands. Like many of the neighboring islands, it is volcanic in origin and mountainous. The highest point on the island is Roach Hill at 321 meters (1054 feet), with new roads being carved into the hillsides to access more areas with vehicles. Jost, (pronounced 'Yost') is a sleepy, laid back island with a few villages that house approximately two hundred inhabitants. Several stunning beaches line the shores of Jost Van Dyke, with beautiful nearby islands at the eastern end of Jost Van Dyke. Located approximately at 18.26 north and 64.45 west. Population of 250.

Anegada Map
Anegada is the northernmost of the British Virgin Islands and lies approximately 15 miles north of Virgin Gorda. The island is unlike the other islands in the chain as it is uniquely surrounded by Horseshoe Reef, one of the world's longest at 18 miles along with a steep history of shipwrecks. Inside the reef system lies mile after mile of beautiful mostly desolated beaches. Anegada is also the most sparsely populated of the main islands (population roughly 250), most of which live in an area called the Settlement. The interior of Anegada is also covered by two-thirds water that makes up numerous salt ponds, which are home to the Caribbean Pink Flamingo. Measuring 11 miles by three, its highest point is just 28 feet above sea level and is located 18.42 north and 64.23 west.
