Easy Trips to the U.S. Virgin Islands With its main islands of St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John among about 50 total islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands is a popular no-pass-port-required destination for U.S. travelers. Beautiful Trunk Bay with its perfect sand beach is one of the most popular spots in the Caribbean for ISLANDS readers. From the busy Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas to the quiet national park of St. John, the USVI is one of the best destinations in the Caribbean.

ISLANDS features editor Matthew Miller recently visited St. John, where he enjoyed peaceful surroundings everywhere from the Caneel Bay Resort to the Virgin Islands National Park. Paddling with Virgin Islands Ecotours and a walk along Trunk Bay were also part of the itinerary, of course. See Matthew's St. John trip reports.
