British Virgin Islands Villa Rentals By Owner
First inhabited by Arawak and later by Carib Indians, the Virgin Islands were settled by the Dutch in 1648 and then annexed by the English in 1672. The islands were part of the British colony of the Leeward Islands from 1872-1960 and finally granted autonomy in 1967.
Although the true name of the country is simply, The Virgin Islands, the word ‘British’ is commonly added to distinguish it from neighbouring US Virgin Islands, to which the economy is closely tied, making the US dollar the official currency in the BVI. The economy is driven by both tourism and a thriving offshore financial services industry. There are approximately 15 inhabited islands and cays in the BVI and the capital, Road Town, is located on Tortola which is also the largest island, and is where almost all the 28,000 residents live.
Other popular islands for holiday makers include Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke. With the exception of Anegada which is a coral island, the islands of the BVI are volcanic. They are mountainous and lush with excellent harbours. Because of these harbours, the BVI are especially popular yachting destinations and have excellent boat clubs and resorts. Anegada is especially popular with divers, and Jost Van Dyke, named for a pirate and early settler, will appeal to history buffs.
