Embark on a four-hour island outing that will have you hiking across the forested hillsides of Sage Mountain National Park before relaxing at Mountain View Restaurant and unwinding along the beach of Cane Garden Bay. Follow a nature guide on a 90-minute, on-foot trek across the rugged trails of Sage Mountain, the first national park opened in the British Virgin Islands. Traipse under old growth forest canopy, exploring an 86-acre wilderness filled with white cedar and West Indian mahogany trees - Sage Mountain is also the highest elevation among all the Caribbean's Virgin Islands. You'll venture to nearby Mountain View Restaurant, a hilltop eatery that lives up to its name, with its breathtaking views of the verdant valleys, bougainvillea blooms, banana palms and boat-filled harbor that expand below its lofty perch. Then on the crescent-shaped shores of Cane Garden Bay, you'll rest your feet on a lounge chair situated at the edge of calm, shallow waters where bobbing sailboats, swaying coconut palms and the soothing sounds of the ocean only add to the serenity you'll find along the coast of Tortola.
