The British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean with 40 islands.

Finding the good diving sites around the world can be a challenge, but a sure bet is the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean with 40 islands available. Not every island is a Diver’s paradise, but the best islands there are total approved!
Take a ferry to Virgin Gorda and take the first dive of your diving holiday in the British Virgin Islands. It’s necessary to get around between the different islands by plane or ship. Relax in the hot water of the Baths. Here you will find natural pools and caves that have been formed by large granite stones. Visit the old abandoned sugar factories at Jost Van Dyke and try a cocktail at a beach bar. Take pictures of Caribbean flamingos at Anegada. The trip has just begun.

100 dive sites with corals, canyons, and shipwrecks

If you are ready to dive in the  British Virgin Islands during your holiday, look forward to over 100 dive sites with coral, canyons and shipwrecks waiting to be explored. If you dive from the island of St. John, you might be lucky to see turtles. Also see if you can spot sharks,  seahorses and stingrays near Angelfish Reef. Follow the underwater snorkeling route in Trunk Bay on the island. One of the most popular underwater attractions is the shipwreck of RMS Rhone. The Royal Mail Steamer ship sank in 1867 and is now a national marine reserve.

The islands are located east of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Sea. There is no direct flight from the US or Europe, so many visitors come via San Juan at Puerto Rico. See more suggestions for diving holidays here at traveltalk.dk.
