Tortola is the largest and most populated of the British Virgin Islands. It is a mountainous island which was formed by volcanic activity. Its highest peak is Mount Sage. Tortola lies near an earthquake fault, and minor earthquakes are common.

The Northern coast has the best beaches on the island, including Smuggler’s Cove, Long Bay, Cane Garden Bay, Brewer’s Bay, Josiah’s Bay, and Lambert beach.

Several of the surrounding islands are also featured on this chart. They include: Jost Van Dyke, Guana Island, Great Camanoe, Scrub Island, Cooper Island, Salt Island, Peter Island and the north-west of St John Island. To the east of Tortola is Beef Island which is connected to the mainland by a bridge. Beef Island is home to the area’s international airport.
