The British Virgin Islands (BVI), grouped around Sir Francis Drake Channel, are less developed than the US group, and number some 60 islands, islets, rocks, and cays, of which only 16 or so are inhabited. They are all of volcanic origin except one, Anegada, which is coral and limestone. Most of the land was cleared years ago for its timber or to grow crops, and it is now largely covered by secondary forest and scrub. In the areas with greatest rainfall there are mangoes and palm trees, but generally the islands can look brown and parched, or green and lush just after rain. Mangrove and sea grape can be found in some areas along the shore.

While there are some large resorts in the BVI, there are no high-rise hotels, casinos and very few nightclubs, as found in some of the other islands which depend heavily on tourism. In fact, there is very little to do at all on land and nearly everything happens in the beautiful water which surrounds the islands. If you are keen on water sports and sailing and have adequate finance (the Virgin Islands are not cheap), you will enjoy island hopping.

The two major islands, Tortola and Virgin Gorda, along with the groups of Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, contain most of the total population of about 20,000, which is mainly of African descent. The resident population was only 10,985 in 1980 and most of the increase has come from inward migration of workers for the construction and tourist industries. About half the present population is of foreign origin. There has recently been a return flow of people from the Dominican Republic, whose parents and grandparents were originally from Tortola, seeking a higher standard of living. Everyone speaks English.
