Sailing boat rentals in Tortola
Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands located in the Caribbean. Its name comes from the Spanish tórtola which directly translates to ‘turtle dove.’
It is located about 60 miles (100km) east of Puerto Rico, making it the ultimate place to rent a sailing boat. Tortola is composed of a long chain of steep hills uninterrupted by any transverse valley. Sailing boat rentals in Tortola are popular amongst locals as a way to experience the amazing British Virgin Islands.
What to do with your sailing boat rental in Tortola
Sailing boat rentals in Tortola allow sailors to experience the island from a different perspective. Explore secret coves and bays that the average tourist will never see, sink your toes into white sand and absorb the charm of the island from the sea.
Step back on land and check out the cultural side of Tortola. The Wall Mural of Fahie Hill is a local work of art that depicts a variety of cultural scenes. It was painted by a local artist who successfully turned a 10-feet-high, 60-feet-wide wall into a masterpiece showing how the people of the island really live.
We also recommend that you see the city from above by visiting the Sky world, which shows a spectacular panoramic view from one of Tortola's tallest towers.
Lastly, follow the famous trail between Spring Bay and Devil’s Bay. In fact, some may say its more like an obstacle course than a walking trail. Use ropes, ladders, and your own wits as you reach your destination.
Tortola Spots to Eat, Drink, and Hang Out
