Wildlife in this locale consists primarily of reptiles, birds, and other small animals. The population includes various lizards, such as iguanas and geckos, as well as tortoise and a variety of tree frogs. Birds of the BVI include hummingbirds, doves, and falcons, along with numerous sea birds such as brown pelicans, flamingos, sea gulls, and more.

The only mammalian wildlife one is likely to see on land here is the mongoose, which was introduced to the islands in the 1800s by the Spaniards. Dolphins are a popular attraction on the Oceanside, with a number of interactive tours offering a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with these friendly creatures.
