British Virgin Islands consist of around sixty islands and cays located between The North Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea, close to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Even though it has been always called The Territory of the Virgin Islands, in the most recent years, the legislation has decided to call it the British Virgin Islands.
Tortola, which is the largest island at 20 km long by 5 km wide, contains the capital of all islands, Road Town. This island has approximately 82% of the population, totaling around 27,800 persons. Almost all islands are volcanic in origin and have a hilly, rugged terrain. Anegada is geologically distinct from the rest of the group and is a flat island composed of limestone and coral.
In terms of economics, The British Virgin Island is an offshore financial center and has one of the best economies of the whole Caribbean region.
