Mount Halsey National Park
British Virgin Islands, Tortola

On the island of Tortola there is a kind of natural reserve - Mount Helsi Nature Reserve. It was founded in 1983 to save and maintain plant and animal populations of the Virgin Islands. At the beginning of the 18th century, almost all territories underwent total use of sugar beets as plantations. Still in the park, especially in its northern part near the port city of Rod Town, reminders of colonial times have been preserved. The most striking are the ruins of a stone windmill, which was used to crush sugarcane. Some of the park is covered with picturesque fields that were once plowed under plantations. Today they give the landscapes of the reserve an unusual zest.
