The British Virgin Islands have been recognized as the ‘Best Caribbean Islands destination’ in the prestigious Travel + Leisure Annual World’s Best Awards readers’ survey. Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards highlight the results of an annual, impartial survey that allows Travel + Leisure readers to share their opinions of their favorite travel experiences. In the annual survey, islands are rated independently by Travel + Leisure readers in several categories, including: natural attractions, activities/sights, restaurants/food, people, and value.

As reported by Travel Daily News, ‘On behalf of the many talented professionals throughout the British Virgin Islands who strive to provide our visitors with exquisite and unforgettable holiday experiences, we are privileged to be named the best destination in the Caribbean by Travel + Leisure’s readers,’ said Ms. Hadassah Ward, Acting Director, British Virgin Islands Tourist Board. ‘This recognition is especially meaningful to us because it comes directly from the readers of a widely esteemed travel publication. Though the BVI is no stranger to this award, we are always pleased to be ranked at the highest echelon of excellence.’

‘Set against a backdrop of unspoiled natural beauty, the British Virgin Islands allow visitors to explore and discover world-class sailing, diving, shopping, dining, and hospitality. Whether you’re throwing out your jib sail and crisscrossing the Sir Francis Drake Channel, descending the depths to explore a century-old shipwreck, hooking into a top-notch marlin or simply soaking in the radiant sun and wide skies, the BVI exudes peaceful, relaxed, luxurious style. From the white sand beaches and welcoming turquoise waters to the friendly, warm-hearted people throughout 60 idyllic islands, the British Virgin Islands delivers one unforgettable experience.’
