Discover how to plan the perfect romantic getaway in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands.
This Valentine’s Day, forget the canned, stale gifts that perish (i.e. flowers, chocolates and teddy bears). Instead, show how much you care by planning an unforgettable romantic getaway for your beloved. It’s a scientific fact that memory-inducing experiences mean more than stuff. Psychology professor Dr. Thomas Gilovich found in a 20-year study that we get more, longer-lasting happiness from experiences than possessions. So spend this Valentine’s Day basking in the romance and beauty of the Caribbean.
Here are our top romantic getaway tips for couples in love:
Discover Private Islands
Go for gorgeous, secluded beaches and bays accessible only by boat and hike, like BVI’s Jost Van Dyke, Anegada, and Norman Island.
Our Top Pick? BVI’s Virgin Gorda. Notorious for its breathtaking views, Virgin Gorda earned its name for resembling a large reclining woman. Snorkel and hike your way to the caves, climbing through rock formations and granite grottoes of The Baths. It’s an invigorating excursion for the young at heart.
Insider Tip: Skip the ferry schedules and get a St Thomas private boat rental to avoid the cruise crowds and gain some solitude!
Our native boat captains know the islands. Rent a boat USVI and let Sonic Charters develop an enchanting custom itinerary for you.
And guys, here’s a tip: Your boat captain can pick up anything your heart desires and simply add it to your tab. At your request, you can have chocolate, strawberries and champagne waiting on board to wow your gal (and make you look great).
Nothing says I love you like dipping into crystalline waters together and exploring nature’s beauty. (Don’t sweat it — We’ll provide the snorkel gear.)
Check out some of our favorite places to scope out:
• Comb over mysterious shipwrecks hand-in-hand with your honey at Manchioneel Bay, Cooper Island.
• Anegada Island: Go with the theme! Spend time together on secluded beaches speckled with pink conch-shells and known for flamingo flock sightings. Then, dine on mouth-watering Anegada lobster for dinner.
• White Bay, Jost Van Dyke: Grab a Painkiller at the Soggy Dollar and spend the day relaxing in hammocks, taking in the dreamy views.
