Virgin Gorda or Tortola

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be landing in St. Thomas on Dec. 9th(4:30pm) for a week. We are planning on staying on St. Thomas for 1 night and then moving to Tortola or Virgin Gorda. My question is which island do people find more appealing? Here are the list of things we like to do and the places we're looking to stay. We've never been to the BVI'S, so any advice would be great!!!

We're really looking for great beaches. I'll do some swimming she'll relax/read. We definitely like the option of having a cool beach bar/place to have a drink during the day or evening. Also enjoy going out to dinner(nice meal or just a cool bar atmosphere). May take a day sail or two. We're planning to stay 5 or 6 nights depending on what time the last ferry leaves on Sunday(have a 1:30 flight out of St. Thomas). Would be open to split up 3 nights on each island, but not sure if this would be more of a pain. Lastly, a bit concerned about driving around Tortola...heard this is a bit treacherous.?

We've looking at the Sugar Mill and Frenchmans on Tortola...or Mango Bay, Biras Creek(although this is much more expensive...), Nail Bay on VG.

Any advice or comments would be much appreciated. I'm sure we'll love both places, but wanted some opinions prior to booking. TA reviews seem to be pretty good for all of them.

Thanks!

- Pat
