Indulge Yourself With A Taste Of Paradise

byAlma Abell

Many people, when they are feeling stressed by their busy lives or the frenetic pace of their jobs, sometimes close their eyes and dream of being far away in some exotic and tranquil location. The type of place that these people usually conjure up is an idyllic island retreat with azure blue skies, and a sea so similar in color that it’s hard to see where it joins the sky on the horizon. Powder white beaches come into this fantasy, along with the image of blissful days with no agenda, spent lazing in the sunshine or just gazing across the landscape and drinking in the beauty of a tropical location. There are few places that epitomize this idea of paradise more that the British Virgin Isles (BVI). The beauty of this destination is that, while it has all the splendor of the Caribbean, it isn’t as over-run by tourists as are other islands. As a result, it’s possible to have a vacation where you can experience privacy and a lifestyle where you can believe that you actually belong on the island along with the locals. More importantly, you can also probably find villas for rent in Tortola that won’t break the bank.

Tortola Activities

If you are one of those people that truly want to get away from it all, Tortola could be the perfect place for you. Many tourists complain when they visit certain very popular places that they are mixing almost entirely with other foreigners and it’s impossible to get a feel for the ‘real’ place. Tortola could be described as an underdeveloped island, so you’ll be able to get a distinct feel for the rhythm of island life. You will almost always be able to find a seat in a restaurant, which will probably be populated mostly by local island people. The chances are very good that you will be able to find a beach where you can be relatively private, without the endless rows of deck-chairs and vendors selling you myriad items you don’t need.

Visiting a Caribbean island is usually about finding a beautiful beach, and Tortola has many of these – with exotic sounding names, such as Long Bay, Sandy Cay, or Smuggler’s Cove. The waters are crystal clear and offer amazing visibility for snorkeling or scuba diving. Tortola has many boats for hire, and you might be tempted to set sail on the translucent waters beneath you. Also, there are numerous hiking trails on these hilly islands, and a wide range of cultural activities that you would be able to enjoy.
