The British Virgin Islands (BVI), officially the Virgin Islands, is a British overseas territory located on the Francis Drake Channel, east of Puerto Rico, in the waters of the Caribbean Sea. The islands are part of the archipelago of the Virgin Islands, the other islands being part of the United States Virgin Islands, while the Spanish Virgin Islands belong to Puerto Rico.
The archipelago is made up of about forty islands, of which eleven are inhabited. The largest are Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke. They have a population of 27,800 inhabitants, 23,000 of which live on the island of Tortola, where the capital Road Town is located.
