United States Virgin Islands Department of Tourism announced an amazing promotion for visitors of the Islands. This year is about celebration there with several programs and free souvenirs for the visitors.

Where is this group of islands located?

The United States Virgin Islands is part of the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean. The three principal islands are St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John, each distinguished by its own personality. The most populated is St. Croix with 56,200 inhabitants. There are 54,000 people living on St. Thomas and 4,400 on St. John. The Water Island has a population around 200.

It is very easy to communicate with the local people because English is the primary spoken language, but Spanish and Creole are also heard throughout the three islands. The weather is simply wonderful: year-round warm temperatures with averages of 25°C (77°F) in winter and 28°C (82°F) in summer.

St. Croix

St. Croix is characterized by its cultural diversity and is the largest of the three islands, lying entirely in the Caribbean Sea.

The sea offers a perfect environment for scuba diving or snorkeling as well.

Pastel buildings and charming shops can be seen in the historic towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted, while the island’s emerald waters, powdery sands and rolling green hillside remain just as Columbus first found them in 1493. 

 

St. John

Around 2/3 of the area of St. John, the smallest of the three islands, is a protected national park with 9500 acres of hilly green land and an underwater reserve.

There are plenty of lookout points around so the atmosphere is more than romantic.

We like to buy some handmade artcrafts fromo the locals. You can also suppert to keep their lifestyle and tradition their.

At this former sugar plantation called Annaberg Sugar Mill, travelers can revisit the remnants of plantation life and the occupation of slaves during the 18th century.

Maho Bay Camps offers a secluded white sandy beach and a wide variety of water sports.

In downtown Cruz Bay, visitors can enjoy St. John’s premier collection of shops and restaurants. The view of the floating boats and yachts is just miraculous!

 

St. Thomas

The cosmopolitan St. Thomas offers sophisticated dining and duty-free shopping and top luxury in accomodating the travelers.

The flora and fauna invites you to stay longer than 3 days and go out for a long walking between the sunbathing and the swimming.

Charlotte Amalie, the capital city of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is a bustling harbor town full of character, fine restaurants, warehouse shops and historic monuments. Located just a half-mile off the coast of St. Thomas, Water Island provides visitors with the opportunity to escape the bustling shops of St. Thomas, and enjoy quiet relaxation.

Here you can get the cultural history in form of wonderful architecture with colorful buildings.
