The Welcome Guide is a great resource for phone numbers, websites, schedules and more, there will be one at our villa. The Limin Times offers a weekly update on what's happening....where the live music is playing, the best BBQ and the where to find the happiest happy hours.....
But having local knowledge is the only way to discover the best of the best. Here are our personal recommendations to really make things easy on yourself! Some are obvious choices shared b everyone, some not to much....
The most important words of advice we can offer are to remember that things do run on "island time" down here! While we personally try to make things run as smoothly as possible, timetables and schedules should be followed loosely. Cars will stop in the middle of the highway and on the roundabout just to pick up a friend or chat. Signposts are few and far between and maps are a rough guide. The good thing is that Tortola is just 12 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest....how lost can you get? The island is still very safe, people are generally very friendly and helpful as long as you are polite and at least semi-clothed......wearing your bathing suit into shops and on the street will not earn you brownie points! As long as you have a good 4WD vehicle you should head out and explore without fear of getting into any trouble. There are numerous stunning beaches off the Ridge Road that runs along the North Shore of the island, all of them un-sign-posted.
