Tortola vacation rentals accommodation Villas & apartments to rent, holiday homes in Tortola, BVI

Tortola is the largest of 60 sun drenched islands that make up the exclusive British Virgin Islands. Surrounded by crystal clear Caribbean waters, Tortola was once a haven for the swashbuckling pirates. These days, their shipwrecks are one of the main attractions for the legions of scuba divers that come to these warm waters to enjoy the diversity of the marine life.

Away from the gorgeous beaches, Tortola has plenty to offer from the lively street markets, shops, bars and restaurants to exploring some of the island's natural wonders such as the Sage Mountain National Park or Cane Garden Bay. A family event not to be missed is the Fireball full moon party held every month at Trellis Bay, Beef Island - live music, skydancers and buffet.
