10 Best British Virgin Islands Small Ship Cruises & Tours for 2021

British Virgin Islands Travel Guide

Best Time to Visit the British Virgin Islands

The best time to visit the British Virgin Islands is between March and early August. This is because temperatures are extremely comfortable and there's a heavy dip in tourism during this time, usually resulting in less expensive air fare, better hotel deals, and better deals on activities. Do be aware that hurricane season does begin in June, so it's possible that could put a damper on your trip but it's unlikely as hurricane season lasts until November and generally the rains peak between late August and November.

Another good time to visit the British Virgin Islands is between December and February. This is because it's winter in many parts of the world but it's still sunny and warm in the Virgin Islands. With this season there's extremely high tourist traffic and the hotel and activity prices generally go up quite a bit.

Between September and November is an okay time to visit the islands with cheaper prices and warm temperatures, but be aware that it rains quite often during this season and this is the peak of the hurricane season.
