The British Virgin Islands (or B.V.I) consists of more than 60 islands and is one of the safest destinations in the Caribbean. It is so safe that exploring by yourself after nightfall isn’t considered high risk. There are enough national parks, white-sand beaches, rainforests and beautiful, blue waters to please even the pickiest traveler.
