I consider a must!
Any recommendations on lodging and/or places to go and things to do in Road Town are much appreciated!
There is a hotel at wickham Cay (personally think its a bit of a dive but probably cheap) and another on the Moorings side (Mariner Inn).
You could try both ... the one at Moorings is nicer but will cost more ... I don't really like the looks of the one at Wickham Cay but they have a bed
, place to eat and close to everything.
Soper's Hole Marina also has a small hotel in a quaint marina as do some other marinas
such as Nanny Cay.
Personally I do not like Tortola as far as a holiday destination
... I prefer the islands of which Peter Island is my favorite! Peter Island also has a ferry
which runs back and forth several times daily, stunning beaches, beach pubs, gorgeous swimming pool and drives over to the opposite side being White Bay (very secluded) etc. etc,
There are many things to do on various islands although the BVI is quiet this time of year ...
Tortola itself may be a disappointment for you !!!
