Activities the Whole Family Can Agree On!
Tired of the habitual fighting over family vacation activities, year after year? There’s plenty of opportunity for fun for the whole family in the Virgin Islands. Check out this list of things to do in the Virgin Islands that’s sure to earn you the title of Parent of the Year.
If you have older kids, night kayaking at the Marriott is a truly unique adventure. Everything you’ve seen in the daytime changes at night, as revealed by LED lights shining into the water. Kayak into dark coves, gaze through your glass bottom boat, and hear a fun pirate joke or two.
Pizza Pi, the floating pizza restaurant, is an iconic Virgin Islands favorite with kids and adults alike. They’ll make your pie plain and simple for the kids, while the adults can order something a little more creative from the seasonal menu. Plus, this food boat serves up locally made homemade ice cream for the sweet palate, and ice cream rum floats for the adults.
Visit a Marine Park
Explore colorful marine life at Coral World. This marine park is a fascinating visit that ranks high with a wide range of ages, from little ones to school-age kids. For extra fun, learn about your choice of animals up close and personal: Try the sea lion encounter, shark encounter, or seal encounter. Afterward, take the family to the next door Coki Beach.
Dining Options for Everyone
Mim’s Seasidie Bistro of St. Thomas is your chance to get away for a romantic lobster dinner…with the kids in tow! Enjoy delightful food with breathtaking, romantic ocean views. Experience the open air atmosphere while the kids dine from the kid’s menu.
High Tide of Cruz Bay is another restaurant that’s both kid- and adult-friendly. The adults can take their time enjoying breakfast, lunch, or dinner, while the kids play and run on the beach. (Talk about stress-free eating!)
Family Water Play
Take everyone out for full family snorkeling at Trunk Bay. Get both adult and kid-sized snorkeling gear from your Sonic Charters captain, so everyone can snorkel together.
Check out the infamous Trunk Bay, which is a VI must-see. Or take the family to the kid-friendly Cinnamon Bay, Maho Bay, and Francis Bay of St. John, whose wide sandy shores are typically popular with the kiddos. Secret Harbour of St. Thomas is another family favorite. The calm waters make for stress-free beach play for the whole family. Or, rent water toys at the food stand on Honeymoon Beach and spend the day enjoying the sun.
