The largest of the British Virgin Islands, Tortola was named by Christopher Columbus in 1493. A mountainous island with beautiful white sandy beaches, it's a delightful destination - and there's much to see and do too. Keen hikers can climb Mount Sage which reaches 1,780 feet above the sea -the most amazing views can be had from here. For a taste of Tortola's history, pay ‘Callwood Rum Distillery' and ‘Mount Healthy Windmill' a visit. From ‘Cane Garden Bay' ‘Smugglers Cove' to ‘Little Bay' and ‘Lambert', Tortola has the most breath taking beaches too just in case you wanted to spend a few hours relaxing under the warm sunshine.
