About the US Virgin Islands
Consider a beach holiday or romantic getaway in the US Virgin Island and discover the islands' unique blend of Danish heritage, American glitz and friendly relaxed Caribbean attitude.
The US Virgin Islands consist of 60 mainly uninhabited islands and cays – the largest and busiest are St Thomas, St Croix and St John. The nearby British Virgin Islands are just a short plane ride away.
Famous for its unspoiled natural beauty, St John offers some of the best snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming, underwater photography, sailing and hiking in the Caribbean.
St John is the smallest and most pristine of the three main US Virgin Islands. Blessed with lush tree-covered hills and mountains fringed by pristine white-sand beaches . . . Read more about St John . . .
There is more to idyllic St Thomas holidays than sun, sea and the stunning Magens Bay Beach – considered by many to be one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Blessed with great conditions for sailing, scuba diving and game fishing, St Thomas also offers fine dining restaurants, a choice of luxurious 5-star resorts and arguably the best discounted duty-free shopping in the Caribbean.
