Tortola, Virgin Islands, British Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

The British Virgin Islands is made up of 60 islands and (small) islets, but nearly all of the life and tourism is restricted to two – Tortola and Virgin Gorda. It remains a British Overseas Territory so it’s no surprise that English is the main language as well as the dominant culture here.
