Accommodations are located by island in the British Virgin Islands, from the main islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda, to lesser outlying islands like Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, Cooper Island, Peter Island, and Guana Island, to small locales like Necker Island and Marina Cay.

Intimate low-rise structures prevail in the BVI due to its policy of having no building taller than a palm tree. Hence, we focus here on the resulting small resorts, inns and guesthouses of the BVI, with the emphasis on the natural beauty of the island environment.

In addition, there are many fantastic villas in the islands which we have described separately for the main islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda, under Tortola Villas and Villas of Virgin Gorda. Look under Outlying Islands for villas there. Also, note that in the BVI, a resort may consist partly or wholly of villas.

Villa generally refers to a detached family home, but may describe a guesthouse or separate level accommodation (a source of great bargains for singles or couples!) as part of a family compound, or even occasionally a duplex or other multiple unit dwelling.

The British Virgin Islands offer a great variety of accommodations in all price ranges. From luxury resorts in the outlying islands to the intriguing, economy-minded oasis (with kitchenette), the BVIs have it all.

Quaint villas, each individually designed, big enough for an extended family, are tucked into emerald hillsides overlooking sparkling seas (see Tortola Villas). Resort marinas, focused around water activities, are popular, each one unique in character.

You can be amid the bustle of island activities or alone with a secluded beach to yourself. There are so many choices in the British Virgin Islands.
