Unspoiled beaches and more in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Covered in lush tropical greenery, leading to sandy beaches and clear blue seas, the U.S. Virgin Islands are the perfect escape from the modern world. Many U.S. Virgin Islands vacation rentals are close to the sea, so you can simply spend your days soaking up the sunshine or spotting exotic fish in the warm seas. The capital, Charlotte Amalie, is a lively city full of historic colonial architecture, with cozy local restaurants serving saltfish and thick stews. Anna's Retreat, on St. Thomas, is a shopping haven, with a mixture of modern malls, duty-free stores, and shops selling local crafts.

Dive around the U.S. Virgin Islands

There are endless scuba diving opportunities around the U.S. Virgin Islands, with lots of small boats taking divers out into the warm clear waters. If you've always wanted to explore a shipwreck, then take a boat to the Butler Bay Wrecks, a site with 5 wrecks of different sizes. The rusted Rosa Maria is 177-feet long, and you can dive through the crews' cabins, spotting artifacts that have been left behind. Congo Cay is a great dive for beginners, with a colorful coral reef, and friendly stingrays and dolphins greeting divers, just under the surface.

Discover the U.S Virgin Islands' plantation history

At the Annaberg Plantation on St. John, you can learn about the island's history as a sugar producer, and the slavery and colonialism that came with it. Set on a hill overlooking the sea, the plantation ruins include remains of the old mill, slave quarters and factory, with a guided tour explaining how sugar production used to be undertaken. Reef Bay Trail also has the remnants of an old sugar factory, which can be spotted scattered along this shady woodland trail. Stay in a U.S. Virgin Islands vacation rental, and you can explore the tropical woodlands.

Tropical sunshine all-year in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Visitors to the U.S. Virgin Islands will enjoy high temperatures all year round, often reaching the 90s and with plenty of sunshine. However, with a tropical climate, the islands feel hotter between May and December, when humidity is high, and the rainy season is in full force. Luckily, most showers and thunderstorms pass quickly. December to April are peak times for booking U.S. Virgin Islands vacation rentals, as the weather is drier, and the heat is more comfortable. Hurricanes can sometimes hit the island, so pay attention to the news before you travel.

Sandy beaches and hilly hikes in the U.S Virgin Islands

With lightly-colored sandy beaches and long coral reefs, the U.S. Virgin Islands are famous for their unspoiled coastline. Rare birds such as the brown pelican nest on the shores, while, in the island's reefs, eagle rays, nurse sharks and many other exotic fish live amongst the coral. A lot of the U.S. Virgin Islands is made up of tropical rainforest, with St. John the least developed of the main islands. Here you hike the 2-mile Bordeaux Mountain trail, through thick forest to the summit, where you'll enjoy views across the group of islands.
