VG is one of the world’s top destinations — Forbes Magazine
The British Virgin Islands has yet another reason to be proud of its tourism product as Virgin Gorda was recently named among the top 10 destinations in the world.
The honour was bestowed by the prestigious Forbes Magazine, which placed Virgin Gorda at number eight on the list of top destinations to visit in 2023. Virgin Gorda is the only Caribbean Island to make this prestigious list.
In its article, “Here They Are: The 23 Best Places To Travel In 2023”, Forbes described Virgin Gorda as “a destination of clear calm waters that offers first-class snorkelling”.
Virgin Gorda is a sought-after vacation spot for couples, families, snorkelers, and beach bums. Visitors are also intrigued by The Baths with its huge boulders and pristine turquoise waters.
“The 23 Best Places to Travel In 2023” list is created based on recommendations by top travel advisors. One advisor explains, “The best way to explore has always been by boat, but with the reopening of the fully renovated Rosewood Little Dix Bay, staying on land is just as magical”.
It is no wonder that Virgin Gorda has been crowned the top choice in several publications in recent months.
The BVI’s Director of Tourism, Clive McCoy stated: “Virgin Gorda gaining the eighth spot as the top destination in the world, and the only Caribbean destination of mention, is an accolade we are genuinely proud of. This reflects the hard work of our industry partners, stakeholders, and the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board and Film Commission.”
McCoy said he remains optimistic about the future of travel to the BVI. He highlighted that there are several upcoming press and familiarization trips that are positioned to boost arrivals.
“These immersive experiences will give press, influencers, travel advisors, and trade partners an intimate knowledge of the destination’s offerings.”
