Tortola Flights Guide
Tortola is a beautiful Caribbean gem tucked between St. Thomas and Puerto Rico. With Road Town as the main city, Tortola is the capital of the British Virgin Islands. Like many other Caribbean islands, its history is a collage of colonial rule, slave importation and pirate battles.
Most visitors are drawn there by the island’s picturesque Caribbean beaches, located along the northern stretch of coast. Smuggler’s Cove is one such beach, an apt name for a place frequented by pirates like Black Beard. With hidden-away coves such as these, Tortola is an attractive destination for cruising sailboats. Around the island are locations for all sorts of sports as well; windsurfing, sailing, diving, kite surfing and snorkeling are some of the many. The interior of Tortola is a dense and mountainous rainforest national park, and despite its small size of 10 by 3 miles, hiking is a serious activity. For example, there’s a place called Brewer’s Bay that one gets to by hiking through a huge bat cave. In terms of historical architecture, Road Town is constructed of pleasant wooden colonial buildings, and Cockroach Hall is an impressive building constructed atop a rock. And it wouldn’t be a very good Caribbean island if it didn’t have its own Spanish fort, here called the “Donjon”.
Tortola has an airport serviced by BVI Airways, Cape Air, Air Sunshine and Winair. Most visitors must take a transfer flight from St. Thomas.
