Review:

"Pamela Acheson shares her intimate knowledge of hotels, inns, bars, restaurants, shops, and attractions." -- Virgin Island Weekly Journal, 1997

"The Best of the British Virgin Islands is aptly named, and in the hands of a traveler bound for these islands is a near-guarantee of a great trip." -- Independent Publisher, March 1998

"The Best of the British Virgin Islands is essential to getting the most out of any trip to the British Virgin Islands." -- Midwest Book Review, January 1998

"Unquestionably the best guidebook ever written on the BVI." -- Caribbean Dream Travel, January 1998

From the opening chapter, all the way through the index, it's obvious that this is a travel book written by a local, and not a visiting travel writer; found here are inside secrets, tips and just plain chatter no short-term visitor could hope to learn. If you want to see the real Virgin Islands, and not just the picture postcard, this book is for you. However, it does not contain photographs or detailed maps, so might be best used as a companion guide, along with other materials. Author Pamela Acheson shares such quaint insights as why one might encounter goats in boats (their owners frequently move them from island to island), how to maneuver through a roundabout (slowly and carefully, despite what other drivers are doing) and where to get the best cinnamon rolls (Christine's on Jost Van Dyke). A "Best of" list at the end of the book is quite valuable, as are the author's insights into each of the listed resorts, cabins, campgrounds and rental houses. The "Great Things to Do" sections, however, frequently state the obvious: "Float - just lie on one of those floats on the warm Carribean and do nothing." The Best of the British Virgin Islands is aptly named, and in the hands of a traveler bound for these islands offers a near-guarantee of a great trip. -- From Independent Publisher
