    We always make the trip to Anegada when we charter in BVI. It's one of the places that truly reminds us of the BVI of yesteryear. Such a charming place that stands the test of time (and hurricanes!) Enjoy the pristine beaches and delicious lobster!

    Dove the RMS Rhone while sailing in the BVI. Was recently certified and the Rhone was an incredible experience for one of my first open water dives

    We shopped at the lovely docking area for our cruise. The shopping was abundant and we had a lovely visit and would go back to stay longer. The view of the hills with the pastel colored housed was breathtaking.

    We arrived in Roadtown on a Saturday and walked to the Pier park where the cruise ships dock. Unfortunately, all the shops and restaurants were closed because there was no cruise ship scheduled till Tuesday. We did enjoy the view of the Roadtown harbor from the dock and I'm sure it would be lots of fun when the shops and restaurants are open.

    I enjoyed a pleasant but short stop at these botanical gardens during a cruise stop to Tortola in December 2021. The admission cost was a modest $3 and was worth that sum, although many of the plants were clearly not at their best. I was the only visitor during the time I was there and you can't help worry how financially sustainable places like this are.

    The staff member on reception was friendly, and it was a pleasant place to wander around, although it isn't a very large plot of land, and 20-30 minutes were ample to see everything and take a few photos before moving on.

    I was pleased I stopped there and hope it can get some investment to keep it going.

    Received a warm welcome! Very much enjoyed the enthusiastic music and excellent homily on the Sunday before Christmas.

    The Ferries from St. John to Tortola are not running due to customs need to rebuild their facility. With that said, you will need to go to St. Thomas to then catch the ferry to Tortola. There is no financial break as you will pay for both trips.
    Getting direct answers was difficult and the phones are not always manned during business hours.
    Do your homework in advance and give yourself time for travel.

    Large selection of touristy stuff, positioned for the cruise ship folks. Staff is nice, and prices OK.

    The lady that greeted us when we entered was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She told us what to expect throughout the museum. This tiny gem of a place is a wealth of information on the island.

    First visit there was at the original location but now they have moved to be more on a major road. Lots and lots of shells. Great for the shell lover

    Enjoyed the setting as I imagined myself living in that setting with its view of Matn Street and the harbor. Information presented and there is an attendant to help or answer questions.

    We drove to Road Town on a day that there was no cruise ship to avoid crowds... and that probably wasn't the best idea while looking for souvenirs... as without the cruisers basically none of the vendors in the Village were open... something for something I guess.

    From the ones that were open maybe one had pretty unique hand made items if you are looking for that but otherwise it's sadly t-shirts, hats and made in C type of goods... if you are looking for something more local I encourage you to visit Nutmeg & Co on the opposite site of the Road Town Ferry Terminal - everything here is in a walking distance once you park next to the terminal or if you ended up coming on a boat.

    At least we got the Flag Magnet we collect from each Caribbean Country :) $5 everywhere

    TIP: all places we stopped at were cash only

    The BVI's are in "OK" condition, even after almost two years since storms. This property is making some progress but there is much damage and wear noted. They seem interested in getting back to a 4 star status but it's taking way too long.I'm not sure if capital is needed or competent services to accomplish restoration.

    A relatively short walk from the cruise terminal, this colourful building has a wonderful internal structure. It’s an architectural wonder given the surrounding and worth the effort to check out. Tranquil, atmospheric and charming.
