U.S. Virgin Islands Travel Guide
Beautiful beaches, stunning waters, incredible people, hiking trails and even an iceberg. The U.S. Virgin Islands is packed with romantic hotels, affordable resorts and family-friendly hotels, making it an ideal Caribbean destination for anyone and everyone. The best resorts offer access to the best beaches, where first-time visitors and returning guests will have access to amazing snorkeling and a bevy of adventurous and entertaining things to do.
The reason people always rave about St. Thomas is because this island is always so much fun—there is always something going on, for guests of all ages. From relaxing in the calm waters of Magens Bay to thrilling, colorful street parties, St. Thomas is a vivid playground for people of all ages. And no trip is complete without a visit to Coral World, where children can get up close and personal with sharks, turtles and sea lions, as well the vibrant marine life that calls the local reefs home.
Adventure awaits visitors to St. John, where two-thirds of the land is a protected national park that boasts 34 hiking trails. Adults and children will enjoy easy strolls on these paths, with some even leading to incredible snorkel spots. Or, for a laidback experience, find peace and plenty of sunshine on the beaches of Leinster Bay and Waterlemon Cay.
Packed with beaches that look like they belong on magazine covers and postcards, St. Croix isn’t as busy as St. Thomas, but it is definitely as beautiful (some might even say it’s the most beautiful of this trio of islands). Snorkeling and diving enthusiasts will want to spend plenty of time at the reefs near Cane Bay Beach, while visitors can visit both Frederiksted and Christiansted to admire the rich architectural history. And at night everyone can hit the streets to experience the lively celebrations, featuring regional food and music visitors won’t soon forget.
