On the British Virgin Islands — just east of Puerto Rico — the world happens in technicolor. Bright-green mountains fall into cerulean waves, white-sand beaches edging the horizon. When you’re here, you’ll never want to be indoors.

White Bay on Jost Van Dyke island and Smugglers Cove on Tortola, the main island, are two of BVI’s most popular, but you’ll surely want more off-grid experiences, too. You’ll definitely want to spend a day at the Baths of Virgin Gorda, traipse through national parks, go snorkeling in crystal-clear water, and maybe stroll up to a swim-up bar or two. Pack the sunscreen and the sunglasses, and get ready for some serious Vitamin D.
