Whether you love adventure or solitude, there’s something for everyone in the Virgin Islands. Choose the activity below that you prefer most, and match your personality to the island that best suits you:
Partying with a Bunch of Friends
Love to be where the party is? If every stranger you meet quickly becomes a friend, your ideal island is Jost Van Dyke. Rent a boat and gather where all the boats hang out, at Soggy Dollar Bar. Want to see what it looks like right now? Check out the beach cam.
If you’re a thrill-seeker looking for rough terrain, explore The Baths of Virgin Gorda, BVI. These granite boulders and tidal pools, formed by magma, offer a vigorous experience you won’t soon forget.
If your ideal day is spent doing absolutely nothing, with no distractions except a stack of good books and a cup of coffee, you want a beach experience that’s solitary and quiet, with nothing but the rustling palm trees to lull you from moment to moment. For the traveler who likes to be away from it all, escape the crowds and discover a deserted island. Find your happy place by taking a charter to Cinnamon Cay, just off of Trunk Bay in the Cinnamon Bay. Soak in the natural goodness, and spend some time snorkeling around the islet.
Do you come alive at night? Party it up in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, where the nightlife is always hopping. Start things off with happy hour, then take your pick of karaoke, dancing to Caribbean music, and dining. It’s always hopping in Charlotte Amalie, the capital city and home of the Virgin Islands’ most popular attractions.
Hop over to St. John, where there’s plenty of opportunities to get away from it all. Most of the island is preserved as a nature park, making St. John quiet, scenic, and off the beaten path of the neighboring St. Thomas. Beaches like Newfound Bay, Francis Bay, and the nearby Whistling Cay of St. John are known for their solitary qualities, giving ample opportunity to luxuriate on the open sandy shores.
Food & Drink Connoisseur
If you pride yourself on knowing the best places in town for dinner and drinks, earn that badge in the Virgin Islands at Cooper Island Beach Club, BVI. Sample endless craft cocktails at their rum bar and microbrewery, stocked with 180 different varieties. The restaurant uses pineapple, papaya, lemongrass, sweet potatoes, bananas, and herbs home-grown on the property.
Sonic Charters St. Thomas boat rentals provides an unparalleled experience exploring the gorgeous U.S. and British Virgin Islands. While enjoying islands from the coast is certainly worthwhile, there’s nothing quite like taking a personal boat out onto the crystal clear waters and enjoying the Caribbean beauty from the sea.
