Guest safety & security
Guests of Virgin Gorda vacation villas will find that the island is relatively safe and secure. Keeping these few health and security concerns in mind will help to ensure that your vacation is enjoyable and hassle-free.
As is true for any vacation destination, we recommend keeping your villa and your rental car locked. Robberies and petty crime do (rarely) occur on Virgin Gorda, so use common sense.
Do not underestimate the power of the Caribbean sun – many a traveler has had his or her vacation spoiled by painful sunburns or sunstroke. Protect yourself with sunscreen and avoid the strong midday rays.
For major medical problems, contact the Virgin Gorda Clinic in Spanish Town, or head over to Tortola’s Peebles Hospital (284-494-3497). For minor medical issues, it’s best to avoid the hospital and the insurance hassles that may evolve. Instead, visit the local pharmacy.
For the police, or in case of fire, call 999.
