We fell in LOVE with US Virgin Islands!
St. Thomas and St. John as well as Water Island are amazingly beautiful little islands located in US Virgin Islands!
But, let me tell you how we got up close and personal with these 3 beautiful islands, it was unexpected to say the least!
While we were in Puerto Rico we caught a Carnival Cruise out of San Juan which was suppose to take us to 6 Southern Caribbean Islands…..
St. Thomas, St. Martin, Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua and St. Kitts!
Well, we made it as far as St. Thomas then the ship caught fire! If you haven’t heard about this you can check out the story here: http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/09/travel/carnival-cruise-liberty-fire-st-thomas-feat/index.html
While thousands of people were flown home, we decided to stay in St. Thomas and make the best of the situation by not only exploring one island but island hopping some other USVI islands such as, St. John and Water Island! “All 3 beauties but for different reasons, read on for our personal recommendations, insights and photos.”
Starting with breathtaking St. Thomas, with her beautiful white sand beaches, nice boutique resorts, great shops, world winning restaurants, fun pubs, stunning views from the lush hilltops to world class water sports in the crystal clear blue water, there is something for everyone on this jewel of a island, no passport needed!
St. Thomas is home to famous Megan’s Bay, which is a must see when on the island, beautiful soft white sand beach with turquoise water, great for snorkeling or just beaching, you can see some other virgin islands from there in the distance!
St. John was next on our list to explore!
Its easy to get to from St. Thomas, just hop on a ferry for less than 30 minutes and arrive at St. John’s quaint Harbor.
St. John is my personal favorite of the US Virgin Islands, its the smallest, most quaint, friendliest with beautiful white sand beaches, crystal clear water, fun shops, great restaurants, very nice boutique resorts, friendly locals and more than half the island is a protected pristine national park, just waiting to be explored…..they even had my personal daily need, smoothie shops with freshly picked coconut water!!!!!
Next, we found a hidden isle in USVI, the locals told us about, Water Island!
This was one of our favorite beaches, mainly because its called Honeymoon Beach and for good reason, one of the nicest beaches with velvet white sand, pretty remote, as you have to sail in to find it, had a fun food/drink shack, if you ferry in which is about 15 minutes from St. Thomas, Honeymoon Beach will pick you up in a open air truck or golf cart and drop you off at this remote beach, you can also rent a golf cart to explore water island! Love Love Love that island!
