What do you love about the BVI?

Aside from having beautiful private islands, I love that the BVI protect their beautiful beaches, corals and marine animals by not allowing jet skis and other motorized water activities. Necker island is very family friendly and have an ample of activities for everyone to do. The destination caters to multi gen families, honeymooners, leisure fit travelers and mice groups. What I love the most are the people, wonderful hospitality and they always have a smile.

I have not explored much of the BVI, but the Baths in Virgin Gorda is on top of my list and Anegada as well and of course Necker Island and Moskito Island.
