US Virgin Islands - Travel Guide
St. Croix, is the largest of the four islands that make up this US territory in the Caribbean. A major draw here, besides being able to stand on the eastern most point of the United States of America, is the world renowned Buck Island. This uninhabited offshore island’s clear waters, abundant marine life and spectacular coral formations create an unparalleled snorkeling experience. There is even an underwater marked trail to follow.
A short ferry ride across from the capital is the American answer to St. Bart’s or Mustique. St. John’s exclusive eastern end caters to a luxurious pampered vacation with all the requisite ingredients. Visitors to the rest of the island will still be treated to the same stunning natural beauty and warmth from the year round residents. Arrive early in the day or late in the evening or by boat and avoid paying the entrance fee to Trunk Bay, and be able to say that you visited what is known as ‘one of the top ten most beautiful beaches in the world’. And, if even St. John isn’t quiet enough for you, head to the most recent addition to the US Virgin Islands, Water Island, with private villas for rent.
It is St. Thomas however, that is the heartbeat of these islands. Thousands of tourists descend on Charlotte Amalie everyday and explore the streets of the city. Don’t let this shopping mecca of a city with its white buildings and bright red roofs distract you for too long. The beaches here are well worth seeking out.
