Rhone National Marine Park, Road Town
Categories: Marinas, Nature & Parks
The first and only marine national park in the British Virgin Islands, Rhone National Marine Park represents a major opportunity for scuba divers. The park centers around the wreck of the HMS Rhone, a mail ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1867. Abundant marine life, historical interest, and several intact sections of the ship make diving here a memorable experience.

Add Rhone National Marine Park to your Road Town travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Road Town holiday planner.
