The British Virgin Islands is a dependant Territory of the United Kingdom in the eastern Caribbean. Scattered in an aquamarine sea, the British Virgin Islands flank the broad Sir Francis Drake Channel, which has beguiled sailors for centuries with scalloped coves and good anchorages. There are over 60 islands in all, whose names reflect their colourful past. Among these are Buck Island, Fallen Jerusalem, Ginger Island, Great Camanoe, Round Rock and Scrub Island. Tortola is the largest island in the BVI. The third largest is the dramatically shaped Virgin Gorda which reminded Christopher Columbus so much of a reclining woman that he named it Virgin Gorda, the Fat Virgin! Jost Van Dyke is said to have been named for an early Dutch settler, a former pirate. Although it measures just four miles by three, with the highest point at 1,054 feet, this rugged island has been home to many people, including the Arawak Indians, Caribs, Dutch, Africans, and British. The beaches in the British Virgin Islands have been voted the best beaches by Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine. BVI beaches like Cane Garden Bay Beach on Tortola, Loblolly Bay Beach on Anegada, White Bay Beach on Jost Van Dyke, The Baths on Virgin Gorda, and Deadman's Bay Beach on Peter Island were rated world class.
