The team at Bonita has rounded up their seven favourite bars in the British Virgin Islands across Tortola, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. Some you may be familiar with but hopefully we can excite you with some lesser known gems and places that you can enjoy a cool drink or a great meal as you island hop.

#1 Botella

The small, intimate and sophisticated bar sits in Tortola's Pier Park offering a relaxed setting for you to enjoy.
