Spectacular sunsets captured in the BVI


Virgin Islands Life – BVI’s Magnificent Sunsets

Photography by Rainbow Visions BVI

There is something so tranquil about viewing a beautiful sunset. Vibrant colours of orange, red, yellow, purple, and pink blend together to create awe-inspiring patterns, which naturally magnetise us to witness this idyllic encounter.

Because of our location in the Caribbean, here in the BVI, we are fortunate enough to experience sunsets which are more colourful, bright, and beautiful than seen in other parts of the world. The lack of unnatural structures permit unobstructed views of the horizon, providing the best sights at dusk. The reflection of sunlight on the ocean creates the diversity of colours visible on the electromagnetic spectrum, with the most gorgeous sunsets occurring when there are very light clouds.

Red shades are caused by dust in the atmosphere which scatters red light more easily. Every island in the BVI, with the exception of Anegada, are of volcanic origin, hence, there is more dust in our atmosphere – Island view from Mount Sage
