The peak tourist season is December to May, but this has more to do with the weather in North America and Europe than it does with the reliably balmy Virgin Islands weather. The calmer weather between April and August tends to keep the waters clearer for diving.
Reliably Caribbean, the weather in the British Virgins is balmy, with daily highs between a cosy 25°C (77°F) in winter and 28°C (82°F) in summer. Perhaps the most pleasant climatic aspect of these islands is the combination of the trade winds that keep humidity low and the Caribbean currents that keep waters warm. The wettest months, September through November, bring powerful but usually short bursts of rain.

There are no direct flights to the BVI from the US mainland, Canada or Europe. Flights usually connect via Puerto Rico, St Thomas or Antigua.
Most flights to the BVI land at Tortola's Terrence B Lettsome Airport on Beef Island, which is connected to the eastern coast of Tortola by a short bridge. It's 15km (9mi) east of Road Town. Plenty of taxis are available for trips into the capital. The tiny airport on Virgin Gorda is near Spanish Town, at the edge of Taylors Bay on the southeastern coast.
