U.S. Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands comprise a group of three islands boasting some of the best beaches in the Caribbean and one of the prettiest ports at Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the largest island, St. Thomas. With its dramatic waterfront framed by green mountains, scores of sailing boats and houses perched on hills, Charlotte Amalie seems straight from a picture story book. It also offers great nightlife, restaurants and some of the best duty-free shopping in the West Indies.

St. Croix is bigger than St. Thomas, but not as populated and therefore much more peaceful. It is regularly visited by cruise ships taking advantage of tranquil anchorages and excellent shopping.

St. John is smaller with even less people and is perfect for those seeking peace and a relaxing atmosphere. More than half of the island is taken up by national park, and Trunk Bay is one of the group's most idyllic beaches. With unexpected treasures, solitary sand swept beaches, dive sites teeming with gorgeous fish and corals, centuries-old plantation ruins and stone sugar mills, the USVIs will intrigue even the most world weary traveller.
