Airport and Airline Options in the British Virgin Islands

Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS) is the country's main international airport. The airport is located on Beef Island and is also known as Beef Island Airport. Beef Island is not one of the country's main islands but it is connected to Tortola by a 70 m bridge.

Nine airlines currently serve EIS, including Cape Air, LIAT, and Winair. Air Sunshine, InterCaribbean Airways, and Sky High Aviation Services currently offer the most flight destinations. Most flight destinations are within the Carribean, with San Juan, Puerto Rico being the most popular destination. BVI Airways will begin flying between Miami and Beef Island in late 2017.

Virgin Gorda Airport (VIJ) is the country's other international airport option. Air Sunshine and Cape Air fly between VIJ and destinations like San Juan and Sint Maarten.

Arriving at the Airport

Both of the country's international airports are small but nice. Taxis are available at each airport though taxi rides in the British Virgin Islands can be expensive. Car rental is also available for travel around the larger islands. The smaller islands, like Beef Island, are largely walkable. By far the most popular transportation options on the islands are sailboats, ferries, or motorboats.

What to See and Do in the British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands' incredible natural beauty is the main reason for visiting. Whole days can be spent just enjoying the white sandy beaches and the crisp, cool water of the Atlantic Ocean or of the Caribbean Sea. Sailing tours are a very popular way to see the sights. You can choose from sailing and fishing tours or glass bottom boat tours which allow you to see animals like turtles and sting rays. Scuba diving to see the gorgeous underwater coral reefs is another key tourist activity.
