A traditional Tortola festival
Tortola is no stranger to festivals and extravagant events with celebrations happening year-round. Plan your next world cruise so you arrive on the island as one of these explosive and colourful festivals is taking place. March and April see the Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival, one of the premier racing events in the Caribbean. 7 full days of sun, sea, sand and sailing, the perfect combination for locals and cruiser alike.
White, sandy beaches of outstanding beauty
The beaches in Tortola are unlike any other in the world. Powdery, hot sands sit underfoot as crystal clear waters lap on the shores. The beaches of the island are perfect for those looking to relax and unwind, go snorkelling or enjoy an early morning stroll. Water sports and fishing are also immensely popular on the island and guided tours and experiences can be found around the island for those looking to get stuck into some adrenalin activities.
Delicious dining options
Like many other Caribbean islands, Tortola is famous for the food it offers. From deliciously fresh seafood to classic bar and grill offerings. Enjoy an evening at one of the locally run restaurants and immerse yourself in the experience. Restaurants, cafes and bars can be found across the island, but Great Harbour and Carrot Bay are full of fantastic offerings.
Hit the waters
There is no better way to see the island than by hopping on board a boat and heading out to sea. Tortola is the perfect location for a day at sea, bob along on your very own catamaran and soak up the sun and stunning views on offer to you. Book with a local guide or pre-book to avoid disappointment.
