The Virgin Islands are the western island group of the Leeward Islands, which are the northern part of the Lesser Antilles. The eastern islands form the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and the western islands form the United States Virgin Islands (USVI).
The BVIs are an overseas territory of the UK and are comprised of approximately 60 islands and cays, most notably Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, and Anegada. The USVIs comprise a number of islands including St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas and Water Island.
The Virgin Islands is one of the most popular yachting destinations in the Caribbean. An experience here is best characterized by glorious 80°F (27°C) year-round temps, white sands, cerulean waters, reggae rhythms, curried meats and mango-sweetened microbrews.

- Cruise to the mile-long coastline of Cinnamon Bay, considered to be the biggest and arguably the best beach on St. John. Here you can rent sailboats, windsurf boards, stand-up paddleboards, and kayaks. Visit the ruins of an old sugar mill, just a short hike from the beach.
- While on St John, rent a jeep and drive through Virgin Islands National Park which covers two-thirds of the island. The park offers miles of shoreline, pristine reefs for snorkeling, and 20 hiking trails. Green iguanas, geckoes, hawksbill turtles, wild donkeys and an assortment of other feral animals roam the landscape.
- Learn more about the rum-infused culture of the West Indies with a tour of the Cruzan Rum Distillery, located on the west end of St. Croix.
- A trip to The Baths of Virgin Gorda is not to be missed! Here you will find a collection of picturesque volcanic rocks that line the beach. The rocks form a series of grottoes that flood with sea water. This destination makes for a unique swimming and snorkeling experience, but the best part is the trail through the caves to Devil’s Bay.
- Explore one of the many diving sites throughout the islands. Check out Boulder Bay on the north side of Thatch Cay. This site offers excellent opportunities for beginning and experienced divers. There are fields of soft corals, sponge-encrusted canyons, and dramatic drop-offs to explore in 40 to 70 feet of water.
