Families seeking a quiet refuge from their busy lives find just that with a vacation to the British Virgin Islands. The lush vegetation on these volcanic isles pairs perfectly with the pristine, relatively untouched beaches. And the BVI are still extremely kid-friendly with plenty to do. Board a wooden schooner and play pirate for the day, just as Captain Cook did here many years ago. Splash in tidal pools near the Baths, formed by large, hardened lumps of lava. For families with older children, the many shipwrecks have created ideal scuba diving conditions.
Be sure to ask about the view before you book a kid-friendly hotel room here: Those situated on the cliffs are breathtaking and will set a calming tone for the entire trip. If your family would rather get off the grid entirely, consider some of the more remote locales within the British Virgin Islands for your stay.
