Spending Spring Break in the Virgin Islands
Whether traveling solo or with a group, a week-long itinerary promises endless opportunities for adventure and relaxation. From swimming in crystal clear waters to hiking lush rainforests, the Virgin Islands offer a diverse range of activities that can only be fully experienced by boat.
A boat tour allows you to visit the most secluded and beautiful spots in St Thomas and St John not easily accessible on land like the Water Island and Hull Bay. Plus, you’ll benefit from a knowledgeable boat captain who can provide insider knowledge about the islands’ history, culture, and natural wonders.
So come aboard and set sail for an unforgettable journey through the Virgin Islands!
Get the Best of Happy Hour
Party like a local in Cruz Bay and relish all that happy hour has in store for you. Don’t forget to check out the restaurants nearby with finger-licking foods for every taste or budget. You may be lucky enough to sample the rare yet popular Rhumb Lines coconut shrimp that’ll leave your taste buds wanting more. Seafood lovers can also head over to Banana Deck for a more expansive menu. Most people prefer to keep things simple on Day 1 while preparing for adrenaline-pumping days ahead.
Hit the Nature Trails and Explore the Vast Lands
The Virgin Islands are ideal for outdoor adventure. Day 2 comes with loads of fun stuff, from traversing scenic nature to visiting historical sites. Explore St. John’s natural settings. With the Virgin Islands National Park occupying over half the island, you can bet to find a unique ecosystem. All you have to do is hike the Cinnamon Bay loop trail and take in the breathtaking sites of the park, including the scenic overlooks, the Jurassic-like greenery, and the St. John Bay Rum tree aromas. History lovers will love the 18th-century historic sugar mill ruins and sugar plantations at Reef Bay. At the end of the tiresome day, reward yourself with a relaxing evening on St. John’s white sandy beach where you can enjoy the beach or take on the waves.
Head Over to the British Virgin Islands
Your trip to the Virgin Islands will be incomplete without checking out the BVI. Rent out a boat on day 3 and head to the British Virgin Islands. Remember to carry your passport to explore this beautiful island (the boat captain can help.) Here are some must-visit locations in the BVI:
- Virgin Gorda. If you love nature, Virgin Gorda is your poison. It’s a tropical haven full of natural beauty and adventures to discover. Hike up Gorda Peak and enjoy panoramic views of the nearby islands when you get to the top. The photogenic person will love taking photos at the stunning Spring Bay, Pond Bay, and Savannah Bay beaches. Virgin Gorda also features quiet coves or reefs ideal for snorkeling by the fascinating marine life, including the parrotfish, the trumpet, and the Hawksbill sea turtles.
- Norman Island. You’ll need your boat captain to sail you to this part of the British Virgin Islands with unique caves. Get inside the caves and explore the walls for sponge and coral coverage. Norman Island also offers you a one-of-a-kind snorkeling experience, where you can uncover rich marine life you’ve probably not seen anywhere else.
Check out St Thomas’s Thriving Nightlife
While the week is almost ending, day 4 is the perfect time to have fun. Anyone who loves to have a good time will fall in love with the nightlife at St. Thomas as the people here know how to paint the town red! There’s always something to keep you hooked no matter where you are, whether in Charlotte Amelie or Havensight. Enjoy Caribbean foods and drinks during bar hopping or test your karaoke or dancing skills. And better still, why not do it all?
You Can’t Leave Without Duty-Free Shopping!
The unsaid rule of vacationing states that you should get a souvenir to remind you of the trip. There’s no better way to do that than going shopping as you wind up your spring break trip. And with loads of duty-free shopping stalls in the Virgin Islands, you can get lots of stuff without breaking the bank. Before heading home, visit various stores and shop for items to take with you. From electronics to perfumes to jewelry at discounted prices, and not forgetting a bottle of Cruzan Rum, there’s something to remind you of this trip as you go back to your daily routine.
