British Virgin Islands Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

Tourist season peaks between December and May, although nearly any time of year is perfect for a holiday in the sun-blessed British Virgin Islands. Daily highs reach around 82 F during the summer, with wintertime temperatures only five degrees cooler.

April through August offer the calmest seas, ideal for diving. September to November brings the most rain, which is usually short and sweet. Trade winds keep the region’s humidity low, while Caribbean currents make the surrounding seas delightfully warm.
