St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix – the three islands known to many as the US Virgin Islands, and the reason millions of travellers head to the Caribbean every year. The laid-back lifestyle of the islands and crystal blue waters keep travellers booking flights to the US Virgin Islands every year.

Travellers booking St. Thomas holidays will find it’s not only the most visited island, but also the most overdeveloped of the islands. St. Thomas boasts some of the best beaches, resorts and dining and there is no shortage of things to do in this Caribbean island hotspot. In contrast, St. John is the smallest of the US Virgin Islands and is a protected landmass – more than 60 per cent of the land is controlled by the US National Park Service. St. Croix is the largest of the US Virgin Islands and while it’s not as serene as St. John, it’s more relaxed than St. Thomas. Tourists booking flights to the US Virgin Islands should hop over to St. Croix for its stimulating nightlife – the introduction of gambling to the island has brought more tourists, and more money, to the economy.

U.S. Virgin Islands climate

The US Virgin Islands are hot and humid all year long. Most of the rain falls between August and October. The best time for diving and snorkelling is between April and August, when waters are calm and underwater visibility is best.

What is good to know if travelling to U.S. Virgin Islands?

  • St Croix is the largest island and has two main towns, Christiansted and Frederiksted. Tourist attractions here include Buck Island Reef, which is renowned for its swimming, scuba diving and snorkelling. Estate Mount Washington Plantation, although in ruins, is the best-preserved sugar plantation on the island. Admission is free.
  • Charlotte Amalie, capital of St Thomas, is the Caribbean’s busiest port, welcoming about 1.5 million cruise ship visitors per year. St Thomas has some beautiful beaches to bask on including Bluebeard’s Beach (for windsurfing), Coki Beach (for scuba diving and snorkelling) and Magens Bay, rated one of the world’s most beautiful beaches by National Geographic magazine. Columbus Landing Beach is where Christopher Columbus landed in 1493. The Whim Plantation and museum chronicles what life was like on a sugar plantation. The Cruzan Rum Distillery dates from 1760 and is open daily for tours. Emancipation Gardens is where many official ceremonies take place. The gardens honour the emancipation of slaves in 1848 by Governor Peter von Scholten, 15 years before the US.
  • The 99 Steps (although there are really 103) extend from Government Hill to Lille Tarne Gade (Little Tower Street in Danish). They are one of several step streets that the Danes built to negotiate the town’s terrain. At the top of the steps, are yet more steps that stretch to Blackbeard’s Castle.
  • Blackbeard’s Castle sits on Government Hill, overlooking Charlotte Amelie. It was originally known as Skytsborg and is said to be the Virgin Islands’ oldest structure.
