The US Virgin Islands
The US Virgin Islands is one of the most stunningly beautiful destinations in the Caribbean. From its sun-kissed beaches and calm turquoise waters and the secluded ‘feel away from civilization” experience, to Cruz bay on St. John there is something to suit everyone. The USVI consists of three islands; St Thomas, St John and St Croix. There is also the small and historically fascinating Water Island. Although each is unique, the trio encompasses picture-perfect anchorages.
Cruising along the translucent waters of the Caribbean, a yacht charter to the US Virgin Islands renders the true meaning of relaxation. In contrast to the British Virgin Islands, the distances between islands are notably shorter, catering perfectly to those who prefer briefer sailing durations.
Explore bustling Charlotte Amalie on St Thomas or head to the island’s highest point, Mountain Top, to sip a banana daiquiri made with local rum as you gaze across beautiful Magens Bay, one of the top 10 beaches in the world.
St John is two-thirds national park, with hiking trails and snorkel safaris. St Croix is home to Buck Island where you can dive, snorkel, go bird watching or hike across the island. Celebrate nature at Sandy Point, a protected beach where green, Hawksbill and leatherback turtles lay their eggs each year. With 500 fish species, 40 corals, abundant wildlife in verdant interiors and stunning beaches, the US Virgin Islands have it all.
