A Taste of Paradise at Virgin Gorda Vacation Rentals

Virgin Gorda Travel Tips

Getting to Virgin Gorda takes a bit of time but once you are there, you’ll certainly agree that it’s well worth the effort. The British Virgin Islands do not receive international flights directly from North America or Europe. To get there, you need to route via one of the neighboring islands such as Puerto Rico, Antigua or St. Thomas. The most regular schedules from the U.S. travel via San Juan in Puerto Rico. For travelers from Europe or Canada, you may find better connections via Antigua. Once there, you can get a connecting charter or scheduled flight to the British Virgin Islands. Although Virgin Gorda has an airport, it is not always operational. Your best option therefore is to get a connecting flight to Tortola. From Tortola, you can get a ferry across to Virgin Gorda.

You will need to plan your flight schedule carefully and ensure that you have enough time to get between airports and to the ferry terminals. The ferries only operate during daylight hours so if your flight arrives later than 4 p.m. you may need to stay overnight in Tortola. The easiest way to get from the airport to the ferry is by taxi. Let your taxi driver know which area of Virgin Gorda you will be traveling to so that he can take you to the correct ferry terminal. The taxi drivers generally know the ferry timetables and if there have been any changes in the schedule.
