Yacht rentals in Tortola
Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands located in the Caribbean. It’s name originates from the Spanish tórtola directly translating to ‘turtle dove.’
It is located about 60 miles (100km) east of Puerto Rico. Tortola is composed of a long chain of steep hills uninterrupted by any transverse valley. Yacht rentals in Tortola are popular amongst locals and tourists as they sail the many islands of the Caribbean.
The island is about 3 miles (5 km) wide, and the highest peak is Mount Sage, which reaches 1,781 feet (543 metres). There is a fragment of an unusual xerophytic (drought-tolerant) forest, with flora like that of the Greater Antilles, which contains species not found elsewhere on Tortola.

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 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.
