How to get to Virgin Gorda: Flying to San Juan, Tortola, or Virgin Gorda

“I couldn’t have asked for a better beginning to our Virgin Gorda vacation than cruising into the remote island destination on, not above, the clear blue waters. After flying into San Juan it was just one short plane ride and a majestic inter-island cruise away from the beautiful island of Virgin Gorda.”  Jan and Kevin Traurig, Centuria WI
