The climate of British Virgin Islands (United Kingdom)
The British Virgin Islands are situated in the Caribbean Sea east of Puerto Rico and are part of the Virgin Islands Archipelago. The American Virgin islands are also part of this archipelago. The British Virgin Islands consist of about 50 islands. Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost van Dyke are the largest and most important islands. The islands have a total population of about 30,000, most of which live on the island of Tortola. The capital of Road Town is also located on this island. Other important places on the British Virgin Islands are: The Settlement on Anegada and Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda. Several smaller islands are private property and are consequently not open to the public. Just like several other islands in the Caribbean Sea the British Virgin Islands are known as a tax haven. However, tourism is the main source of income by far. Every year hundreds of thousands of tourists travel here to enjoy the snow white palm tree beaches and the azure blue sea. Snorkeling and diving are popular activities here. The British Virgin Islands have a tropical maritime climate strongly influenced by the Caribbean Sea. Temperatures are constant all year round, precipitation figures are always high. During the second part of the year there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. During this period humidity figures may rise causing a muggy feel. During the first few months of the year precipitation figures are slightly lower. However, precipitation figures are still fairly high. The temperature of the sea is pleasant all year round. Precipitation mostly falls during the early morning.

More climate information
Climate tables are useful but they dont give an overall picture of the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time. How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate information per month. The figures below are for the British Virgin Islands. Please, note that local deviations may occur.
