How do I get to Tortola?

You can fly either into Tortola (Beef Island Airport) or St. Thomas. It is easier from Tortola, but airline fare variations and frequent flyer programs may make St. Thomas a more practical point-of-departure if flying from USA.
If flying into St Thomas you will need to catch the ferry to West End, Tortola.
