Hi everyone,

We will be taking a ferry to Tortola from St. Thomas for a day and was wondering if we should get off @ the West End or head towards Road Town? Are there any must see sights on Tortola?

Thanks,

If you get off at West End, it is a decent cab ride into Road Town. It depends on what you want to do/see. There are some good beaches on the north side of the West End and you will be close to them if you get off there. You may want to see some things in town though, like the Botanical Gardens, etc. We have a page of some things to do here <a href="http://www.caribbean-on-line.com/bv/bve.shtml">http://www.caribbean-on-line.com/bv/bve.shtml</a>

Then there is the shell "Museum" - more of a folk museum, but pretty cool.

The "Bomba Shack" <a href="http://www.virgin-islands-on-line.com/coconut-telegraph/archives/000575.shtml">http://www.virgin-islands-on-line.com/coconut-telegraph/archives/000575.shtml</a>

And Long Bay <a href="http://www.virgin-islands-on-line.com/coconut-telegraph/archives/000595.shtml">http://www.virgin-islands-on-line.com/coconut-telegraph/archives/000595.shtml</a> which are all closer to the West End. So unless you really want to see town (which is actually pretty small) staying on that end for the day would probably be fine.

Thanks
