Things to do in U.S. Virgin Islands

No matter which island you visit, there are plenty of things to do in the U.S. Virgin Islands. On St. Thomas, check out the stunning beaches such as Coki Beach or Coral World Ocean Park. If you’re adventurous, try out wind surfing or sea kayaking. There are air tours, bicycling, boating, and water excursions all available.

To visit St. John, travelers can easily access the island via boat or ferry, just four miles from Charlotte Amalie. The Virgin Islands National Park is a great natural feature to explore, as well as snorkeling on St. John’s coral reefs. St. Croix is the largest of the islands and the most exclusive. Head out for a round of golf on one of their award-winning courses. Charter a boat and sail around the island itself, or relax in the private luxury of your accommodations.
