Best of Tortola
Joseph Reynold O’Neal Botanical Gardens: A four-acre oasis in the heart of Road Town, these botanical gardens are a living museum of colorful and unusual tropical plants and animals.
Fahie Hill Mural: An ode to Tortola’s past, this colorful mural painted on a roadside retaining wall depicts islanders’ way of life after emancipation but before widespread development.
Sage Mountain National Park: Cool, moist, and remote, Tortola’s Sage Mountain is the highest point in the Virgin Islands and a hiker’s dream.
Smuggler’s Cove: Is this a perfect beach, or is it just me? Coconut palms, fine white sand, a small reef, protected waters, and an utterly peaceful atmosphere — this is the reason you came to the Caribbean.
Trellis Bay Full Moon Party: This funky full moon celebration on Beef Island features traditional music, arts, and Aragorn Dick-Read’s flaming fireballs.
