British Virgin Islands

Flag   BritishThe British Virgin Islands (BVI) are territories of Her Majesty's land, but aside from scattered offerings of fish and chips, there's little that's overtly British. Part of a volcanic archipelago in the Caribbean comprising of 4 main English speaking islands plus several smaller ones, it is nicknamed ‘nature’s little secrets’.

These territories of the British Commonwealth are located east of the US Virgin Isles. Its capital is situated on Tortola with an overall population of 28,054 (2010).

HISTORY

Both Arawak and Carib Indians originally inhabited BVI.

They were settled by the Dutch in 1648 then taken over by the British in 1672 and granted autonomy and self-government status in 1967. The economy is tourism driven and tied to the $US, in addition to its offshore financial trade.

Fungi is the local folk music, which evolved from Africa via the slave trade.
