St. John travel guide

4.8
Beaches · Kayaking & Canoeing · Bodies of Water
With two thirds of St. John designated as a national park, the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands is also the least developed, lacking an airport and cruise ship docks. Although well connected to its more commercialized neighbor, St. Thomas, St. John makes it easy to get away from crowds and enjoy pristine white-sand beaches. On a trip to St. John you can spend your days snorkeling or kayaking, explore the verdant hills of the national park, or head to Cruz Bay, the islands largest town, for excellent dining and shopping.

Geologic Formations · Bodies of Water · Beaches
Escape from civilization and take a trip to British Virgin Islands, a collection of 60 small islands and cays in the Virgin Islands archipelago. Although British territory, the island is not noticeably British, offering a quiet and serene vibe that lives on despite a major tourism boom. With most of its islets uninhabited, British Virgin Islands remain a paradise for sailing, snorkeling, lazing on a deserted beach, and exploring sleepy seaside villages.

Tortola travel guide

4.2
Bodies of Water · Water Sports · Marinas
The largest and most populated of the islands in the archipelago, Tortola offers its own entertainment, as well as providing a comfortable and convenient base from which to explore the rest of the islands. Head to the island's beaches during your holiday in Tortola, with each sandy stretch of coastline having its own character, and offering experiences both restful and active. The lush green mountains of the interior deserve exploration, along with a number of historic sites dotted across the island, including local folk museums and colonial architecture.
