Spring Break Guide: 5 Days of Fun in the Virgin Islands

Heading to the Virgin Islands for Spring Break? The Caribbean is a popular tropical getaway destination among “grownup kids” taking a week off from the daily grind. Whether you’re traveling with friends or solo, here’s your week planned out for you in advance, with the best the islands have to offer!

Day 1: Get in on the Best Happy Hour Out There

Party it up in Cruz Bay for a Happy Hour that’s worth writing home about. Then dine the superb restaurants of Cruz Bay. Choose among good eats for every palate and budget, including: Rhumb Lines coconut shrimp (when available) and Banana Deck’s seafood Alfredo.

Day 2: Nature Trailing It

Get away for some rejuvenating time in St. John’s natural settings. Hike the Cinnamon Bay Loop Trail and soak up the lushness of the National Parks. From Jurassic-like greenery to scenic overlooks, intoxicating St. John Bay Rum tree aromas, and historic sugar mill ruins, this trail has it all. When you’re done, savor the reward of sun, sand, and surf on St. John’s longest white sandy beach.

Day 3: Get Away from it All in the BVI

Rent a boat and head to the BVI. Although no passport is required for the U.S. Virgin Islands, you’ll need to bring one along to explore the beautiful British Virgin Islands. Your boat captain can help manage this seamlessly.

  • Virgin Gorda. Get the feel of a natural getaway: Explore Virgin Gorda, for all its natural beauty and adventure. Rest on the picturesque beaches of Savannah Bay, Spring Bay, and Pond Bay. Soak in nature while hiking up to Gorda Peak, and take in rewarding panoramic views of nearby islands. Snorkel the quiet coves to discover Hawksbill sea turtles, parrotfish, trumpet, and other reef fish in abundance.
  • Norman Island. Swim The Caves of Norman Island, accessible only by boat. It’s a truly unique snorkeling experience, exploring the cool, clear water and uncovering rich marine life. Be sure to go into the cave and check out the walls for incredible coral and sponge coverage.

Day 4: Best Nightlife of the Islands on St. Thomas

Explore thriving nightlife in St. Thomas, whether you’re in Charlotte Amalie or Havensight. Go bar hopping and take your pick of dancing, karaoke, or Caribbean food and drinks. Or choose them all!

Day 5: Last Stop, Duty Free!
Before heading home, hit the stores and spend a day shopping. Duty-free shopping makes it worth loading up suitcases with perfume, jewelry, and electronics at deeply discounted prices. And don’t forget to take a bottle of Cruzan Rum back home as a souvenir or gift.
