The United States Virgin Islands are a paradise, with three beautiful islands that share the same stunning landscape. But which one is the best to visit? It all depends on what you want to do and who you're going with. If you're traveling with family, St. Thomas is the most famous island and has lots of kid-friendly activities, such as museums, different foods to try, and fun adventures like diving or zip-lining.
It also has a lively nightlife with clubs, sports bars, beach bars, and wine bars. You can stay in luxurious places like the Emerald Beach Resort or more affordable places like The Green Iguana Hotel. For an adventure or to explore beautiful nature, St. John is the island to visit.
Two-thirds of the island is a US national park and you can only get there by taking a ferry from St. Thomas. There are lots of restaurants and food stores in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, as well as luxury accommodations like Gallows Point Resort and Dahlia Villa. You can relax on one of the many lovely beaches, such as Honeymoon Beach or Trunk Bay Beach, or go snorkeling and find beaches known for their abundance of sea turtles.
There are also campsites if you decide to stay overnight. If you're interested in history, St. Croix is the island for you. It's not as commercialized as St.
Thomas and doesn't get as many visitors, but it still has impressive offerings in terms of beaches, wildlife and landscapes to explore. You can reach the island directly using the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport or take a ferry from St. There are food tours that last between 2 and 3 hours if you want to try several local foods.
Popular beaches include Cane Bay Beach and Sandy Point Beach, and there are plenty of places worth visiting such as Fort Christiansvaern, the Hams Bluff lighthouse and St. Martin.
