The Virgin Islands encapsulate everything the Caribbean has to offer: turquoise seas, dazzling white sands, warm sun, and gentle trade winds. With so many islands and islets to explore in the archipelago, it’s easy to see why the area is so popular for sailing, snorkelling, or just chilling out. St John, St Thomas, and St Croix are the three main US Virgin Islands (USVI), while Tortola and Virgin Gorda are the two main British Virgin Islands (BVI) in the chain; in between there are dozens of smaller islands and islets to discover, if time permits. St Croix, the biggest of the islands in USVI, is a holiday hotspot with restaurants, shopping, casinos, and historical sights. On Tortola, you can enjoy typical West Indian cuisine, or fish and chips Caribbean style. Cane Garden Bay on the island is picture postcard perfect and a popular anchorage for yachts and cruise ships alike.
