And remember, you must drive on the left side of the track.

Ferries are the most popular mode of transportation between Tortola and the other islands. Ferry service is available from many companies serving the islands and is regular, dependable, and reasonably priced.

Safety

The British Virgin Islands are with a low crime rate and are one of the safest Caribbean islands. Tortola’s police force is efficient, and protection is rarely a concern. Still, you should avoid walking alone in remote locations, particularly after dark; don’t bring large quantities of cash or jewelry; use a hotel safe if possible, and never leave something important unattended on the beach. Since your passport cannot be renewed or replaced in the BVI, take extra caution about it.

You’ll find warm hospitality, delectable Caribbean food, and welcoming beaches, no matter which Tortola resort you pick. So you don’t have to worry; Tortola features everything from family-friendly resorts to pet-friendly resorts and romantic couples’ getaways. You’ll be sure to find your little paradise.
