Clockwise Tortola, BVI Counter-clockwise

Tortola is the main island of the British Virgin Islands. The airport lies at the northern end near the anchorage of Trellis Bay. The capitol, Road Town lies roughly in the middle on the eastern side on the Drake's Channel and is home to the main Moorings base. There are major yachting centers further south at Nanny Cay and at Soper's Hole on the west end. Full moon parties of legendary proportions are held at Bomba shack above Cane Garden Bay on the western side.
