Things to do in  US Virgin Islands

Welcome to US Virgin Islands

Known for their snorkeling, hiking, and watersports opportunities, the Caribbean trio of US Virgin Islands serve as an ideal destination for outdoor adventure—choose the island that suits you best or book a private tour to hit them all. Sightseeing tours in St. Thomas give visitors the chance to explore bustling Charlotte Amalie, Coral World Ocean Park, and idyllic Magens Bay. Meanwhile, boat tours allow easy access to St. John, home to the nearly untouched Virgin Islands National Park and an abundance of sea turtles. And just off tiny St. Croix sits Buck Island, where you can kayak through a mangrove lagoon.

For one of the best views on St. Thomas, make the drive to the mountaintop perch at Drake’s Seat. Here you can keep lookout over Magens Bay and the British Virgin Islands, just as Sir Francis Drake was said to do from this very spot in order to catch pirates, privateers and invading naval ships approaching from the north via Drake’s Passage, also bearing his name. Today, this lookout point sports a stone platform with a bench atop it, and it’s a popular top for tour groups. The crowds mostly disperse by evening however, making Drake’s Seat an ideal spot to take in the sunset.More
