This can help ensure you stay safe and do not get into any trouble while on vacation. Here are a few of the British Virgin Islands warnings and dangers you should know when visiting.

Dangerous Drivers

If you plan on visiting the British Virgin Islands, you likely do not need a car. Most resorts are all-inclusive and included everything you need. But if you decide to rent a car, be aware of dangerous drivers. Locals speed around curves and on blind parts of the road, which can create a dangerous situation.

Illegal Fishing

There are many rules and laws pertaining to where you can fish on the island and what type of fishing can be done if you can fish in the area. If you love to fish, make sure you know the rules and laws pertaining to fishing to ensure you are not issued a citation. They do take illegal fishing seriously.


Scorpions are found in many places on the island. Check your shoes before you put them on and never stick your hand in holes or dark spaces you cannot see into.

Carry Cash

Many of the smaller eateries and shops do not have credit card machines and ATM machines availability can be spotty. Always carry some cash with you if you are venturing away from your resort to ensure you can buy what you need.
