Ginger Island is a presently uninhabited island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. It is one of the last undeveloped privately held islands in the territory. The island is roughly 258 acres (104 ha) in size. It is the location of two of the better dive sites in the British Virgin Islands: "Alice in Wonderland" and "Ginger Steppes". The island is owned by the Aggie Sailing Team. Most people do not go on the island, as there is no dockage and the island is very overgrown.
