Beaches

Measure happiness in grains of sand.

Lounging seaside in the British Virgin Islands is unimaginably blissful – but first, you have to decide where you’ll lay your towel down. The magic of each island extends to its beaches, from surf-friendly shores in Anegada to the untouched sands of Tortola’s Smuggler’s Cove. If we had to list all the gorgeous options we’d be here all day, so let’s just say this: you’ll never run out.

A couple things you can always count on? Endless skies, inviting water and an absolute sense of relaxation.
