Welcome to our pages on the US Virgin Islands. It would take a lifetime to complete everything here, but we feel we’ve touched on the major beaches and pastimes so you can relax and sight-see and not feel that you’ve gone to the Islands and didn’t get to see some of the better things they have to offer. It would take many trips to see it all, and granted, people move here and spend a lifetime and never see the half of the beauty bestowed on the USVI.
It’s not hard to see why the U.S. Virgin Islands are known best for the sugar-white beaches. They are absolutely World Class. But the U.S. Virgin Islands are also know for shopping! Some visitors come from far away just for the great bargains at the most developed island of the chain, St. Thomas.
This means that on St. Thomas, you’re not going to have the beaches to yourself. What you will have are many bars and restaurants, hotels of all prices, and tour operators.
Bigger than St. Thomas is St. Croix, more laid back, but many cruise ships stop here as well. There are great beaches here, but the gem is Buck Island, an offshore U.S. National Park. St. Croix is a retirement haven with hundreds of condos dotting the island.
Finally, St. John is the smallest of the three, and we think the more beautiful. Less development has gone on here, so there is more of the natural feel of the island to enjoy. Almost two-thirds of the island has been set aside as a U.S. National Park. The gem here is world famous Trunk Bay. The beach is wonderful.
If you’re looking for year-round great weather, look no further. The U.S. Virgin Islands lie right in the subtropical, easterly trade winds, bringing near perfect weather!
USVI is about 60 miles south of Puerto Rico and some 1,100 miles south of Florida.Laid Back, Best Beaches, Beaches, Atlantic Ocean, Water St, Mecca
