The British Virgin Islands celebrate New Year’s Day with a public holiday every 1 January, as does most of the rest of the world. However, the celebrations really begin on New Year’s Eve and reach a high point with the turning of the clock from 11:59pm on 31 December to midnight on 1 January.

New Year’s and Christmas time are a busy time of year for tourists and locals alike in BVI. The last day of the year, 31 December, is among the most boisterous and fun-filled of them all.
There are fireworks exploding over the water in many locations around BVI on New Year’s Eve, while all-night parties go on in private homes, at restaurants, and at night clubs. Foxy’s Old Year’s Night party, a kind of BVI toga party, is especially popular with many.
Some also enjoy the beach and various ocean sports on the New Year’s Day public holiday, if they’re not recovering in bed or relaxing at home with family and friends.
