Great scenery but we were too scared to stop and take pictures! If you up for the adventure and rent a 4x4 you will get great views.

Nature at it's best as there are ancient rainforests and white beaches at Apple Bay and Smugglers Cove. Taken on an escorted Tour of the Island and saw some wonderful sights all the way around the island so it was worth seeing.

Winding high narrow roads through lush vegetation. Great views from bar at high point of road. Most of the Islands few attractions can be seen from road. Our driver pointed them out with interesting historical facts.

The views from Ride Road are spectacular. From the highest peak on Tortola you can look down to the stunning bays with their sailing vessels, amd also spot surfers out ready to ride. The vegetation is lush and the flowers beautiful.

The road is hilly and windy, a little steep in places, but gorgeous views are around every corner. Not much in the way of traffic during the slow season (August and September). Not much open either, but a beautiful drive.

I took taxis for 3 days before deciding to try my hand at driving on the "correct" side of the road over these mountain passes. I am from New Hampshire, so various road conditions are nothing new, but this was a trip! I don't know...More
