British Virgin Islands (BVI)

Offshore Jurisdictions / North and South America / British Virgin Islands (BVI)
The British Virgin Islands is an archipelago of over 40 islands, 16 of which are inhabited. Discovered by Columbus, who is said to have been so impressed by their large number that he named them "Las Virgenes" in honor of St. Ursula and her 11,000 attendant virgins, they lie to the north west of the United States Virgin Islands. The neighbour with the largest land area is Puerto Rico, 96 km to the west. Except for Anegada, which is a flat reef surrounded island of coral limestone, the Islands are hilly and enjoy a subtropical climate. Their greatest tourist attraction is their superb beaches.
