Why You Need to Rent a Vehicle in Virgin Gorda

by Ray Larson

Although cabs are available in Virgin Gorda, the best way to get around the second biggest island in the British Virgin Islands is to rent a vehicle. Our beautiful islands consists of two main areas – Spanish Town, which is also known as the valleys to the south, and The North Sound, which consists of several resorts and a small harbor community named Gun Creek. Sunset Watch Villa is located between these two areas. If you rent a vehicle in Virgin Gorda will help you experience everything our island has to offer.

Car Type and Driving Style

Because of the steep climbs and rolling hills throughout Virgin Gorda, jeeps with varying passenger capacities are the most likely vehicles to be available. Virgin Gorda also follows the British style of driving on the left side. United States driver’s licenses are valid for 90 days when you purchase a temporary BVI license for $10.
