How to get to the British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islandsremains one of the jet-set’s little secrets because it is impossible to fly directly from the U.S., Europe, Canada or South America.  To reach the under-the-radar Terrence B. Lettsome Airport (EIS) on Beef Island, you must connect through another Caribbean airport, take a ferry or charter a private jet.


Should you choose to fly commercial the entire way, you will have to connect via San Juan, St. Thomas, Antigua, St. Kitts or St. Martin. Travelers from the U.S. will find the easiest flight path is through San Juan, Puerto Rico. While travelers from the U.K. should opt to fly through Antigua.


Ferries are a popular and scenic way to cruise between the islands. Most ferries only run during daylight hours, so you may have to spend a night in Tortola or on another island before arriving to your dream destination of Virgin Gorda, Jost van Dyke, Anegada, or Peter Island.


There is certainly no more posh way to arrive on the British Virgin Islands than by private charter. If you can afford the luxury, the following companies operate hassle-free island air services:


Whether you choose to fly or ferry, the clandestine paradise that awaits your travel to British Virgin Islands is well worth the trip!
