British Virgin Islands is a British overseas territory, located in the Caribbean Sea to the east of Puerto Rico. The British Virgin Islands, or to use it’s popular abbreviation BVI, consist of the main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, along with over fifty other smaller islands and cays. Some significant smaller islands include - Beef Island, Cooper Island, Ginger Island, Great Camanoe, Great Thatch, Guana Island, Mosquito Island, Necker Island, Norman Island, Peter Island, and Salt Island. Most of the islands are of volvanic origin and are suitably rugged, and are covered in tropical trees and vegetation. The islands are relatively prosperous when compared to other Caribbean islands. The two economic drivers are tourism and financial services. Substantial revenues are generated by the registration of offshore companies and companies on the islands. However, tourism is regarded as more important as more local companies are involved and it is the biggest employer. Tourists engage in a number of activites including visiting the numerous white sand beaches, visiting The Baths on Virgin Gorda, snorkeling the coral reefs near Anegada, sampling the well-known bars of Jost Van Dyke, or chartering yachts to explore the less accessible islands. Also, a substantial number of the tourists who visit the BVI are now cruise ship passengers.
