BVI LOVE : Re-Opening to Visitors 1 December 2020
Some of our treasures....
Nature's Little Secrete
British Virgin Islanders are proud of the beauty of their islands. The coat of arms that appears on the BVI flag and on many official publications that depict Saint Ursula framed by eleven oil lamps, which represent the eleven thousand virgins after whom the BVI were named.
Many houses constructed in the traditional wooden hip-roofed style can be seen throughout the countryside along with more contemporary concrete homes incorporating wide verandas, hip-roofs and bright colours.
Older traditions are still celebrated. Traditional art of wooden boatbuilding which possibly includes the oldest sloop in the Caribbean. Farming the land with local favorites such as guavas, guavaberries, papaya, sour sop, sugar apples, bananas and more. Some fishermen still use wooden boats and fish traps catching delights from the sea.
The BVI produces a few local spirits which started with the Callwood's Rum Distillery in Cane Garden Bay. A Christmas Tradition combines the fruit of the guavaberry tree with spiced rum for a truly festive drink.
The BVI is home to talented chefs and homestyle cooks that serve nothing but love. Some of the local favorites are johnny-cakes, fungi, goat water stew, jerk BBQ, fish soup, plantain, roti and many more delights.
Family and community is the heart and soul of the British Virgin Islands.
