About Tortola

Tortola is 60 mi (96 km) east of Puerto Rico and 22 mi (35 km) east of Saint Thomas. The island is about 10 mi (16 km) long and 3 mi (4.8 km) wide.

English is universally spoken throughout the British Virgin Islands. Those who work with tourists will speak quite clearly, but older natives have a thick and distinctive West Indian accent that, when spoken quickly, can be very difficult to understand. Because of the influence of British culture, a stronger emphasis is placed on politeness and decorum. It is generally expected to begin any conversation with a "Good morning," or whatever time of day is applicable; the common American English habit of simply beginning a conversation without salutation is considered aggressive and even rude.
