Unique Places to See in the Virgin Islands
If you’re ready to take the “drab” out of vacationing, plan a cruise to the Virgin Islands. It’s the cure for the common vacation, with a unique experience waiting around every corner. Check out our top picks for island hopping in the Virgin Islands, with discussion on hurricane recovery.
- Where to Go: Cruz Bay, St. John
St. John is the nature lover’s paradise, offering the ultimate in exploring.
We recommend: Cruz Bay. The Cruz Bay beach has been officially cleared and the beach is back. Plus, Cruz Bay offers delightful dining and shopping options if you want to grab a breather between excursions.
How to play: Rent a kayak and comb over the shoreline at your own pace. Want something faster? Get a waverunner for more speed, and more thrills.
- Where to Go: Anegada, BVI
Anegada, known as “the drowned island” because of its extremely low elevation, avoided the brunt of the hurricanes.
How to get there: You’ll need to take a charter boat, as you’ll be hard-pressed to catch a ferry there. The reward? Escape the crowds. See flocks of Caribbean flamingos and Anegada Rock Iguanas. And don’t leave the island without sampling some of Anegada’s infamous lobster. Try Lobster Trap or Potter’s by the Sea, both verified to be open after the 2017 storms, and both earning high praise from fellow diners.
How to play: Go snorkeling. Anegada is the third largest barrier reef in the world, making the snorkeling superb. Try Cow Wreck and Loblolly for caverns, coral, and canyons in amazing clarity.
- Where to Go: Climb the Heights of St. Thomas
Get some elevation and take in refreshing scenes:
-Drake’s Seat – Steal breathtaking views and photo ops of the picturesque Magens Bay, along with panoramic views of neighboring islands.
–Mountain Top – Climb 1500 ft. above sea level to see both the USVI and BVI sprawled before you. This spot has been deemed the best view of Magens Bay by National Geographic!
How to play: Go a step further and get some real altitude – Take it all in with an invigorating aerial tour. Want to fly a little lower? Parasailing offers a uniquely fun vantage point.
