Salt Island is one British Virgin Islands located approx 8 km (5 ml) southeast of Tortola (Road Town). The island is best known for the packet steamer wreck RMS Rhone (sank here in October 1867). Most of its crew died, and of them were buried in a mass grave (located at short walking distance from the island's main beach). Rhone ship wreck is considered one of the best Caribbean scuba diving and snorkeling sites.
