British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. Located 60 miles off the east coast of Puerto Rico in the north-eastern Caribbean, the BVI is made up of four main islands; Virgin Gorda, Jost van Dyke, Anegada and Tortola, which is the main island and where the capital, Road Town, is located. The population of the islands is 22,016 (according to a 2006 census). The islands are multicultural, with many different nationalities from all over the world living and working in the BVI. The key pillars of the BVI’s economy are the Financial Services Sector and the Tourism Industry, both of which make the BVI one of the more flourishing economies within the Caribbean. There is sound healthcare provision in the BVI through government funded and private clinics. One of the many benefits of living in the BVI is a low tax income. The BVI enjoys a sub-tropical climate ranging from 25°C in winter to 29°C in summer. However you choose to relax in the BVI after work, there is something for everyone such as, some of the best ship wreck diving sites on the planet as well as unsurpassed sailing and first rate fishing to name a few of the many pastimes to enjoy. The BVI has a wealth of national parks, with stunning scenery and tranquil beaches all under a beautiful blue sky and surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The unparalleled natural beauty of the islands, the warmth and kindness of the people and the balmy climes, make the British Virgin Islands a highly desirable place to live.
