Second only to Tortola among the British Virgin Islands in both size and population, Virgin Gorda BVI and its people embody the laid-back spirit of the Caribbean, with a casual charm that's distinctly British and a friendliness all their own. Snorkeling, hiking, and lolling about on white sand beaches make Virgin Gorda BVI a spectacular place to visit, but don't expect Virgin Gorda BVI to be crowded and touristy; residents of Virgin Gorda BVI and the British Virgin Islands in general have done much to preserve the quiet allure of yesteryear here, refusing to accept direct foreign flights and regulating modern building contracts to suit the quaint architectural nature of Virgin Gorda BVI.
