Road Town, on Tortola's southern shore, is the capital of the British Virgin Islands and the site of the Government House and other administrative buildings. Wickham's Cay, a 28-hectare (69-acre) town center project, has brought in a large yacht-chartering business and has transformed the sleepy village capital into more of a bustling center.
The entire southern coast of this 62-sq.-km (24-sq.-mile) island, including Road Town, is characterized by rugged mountain peaks. On the northern coast are white-sand beaches, banana and mango trees, and clusters of palms. To the northeast lie Beef Island and the airport.more local info
