US Virgin Island Yacht Charter
The U.S. Virgin Islands are located in the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, about 140 kilometres east of Puerto Rico. The territory consists of four main islands: Saint Thomas, Saint John, Saint Croix, and Water Island, as well as several dozen smaller islands. St Thomas has more resorts and water sports than you can shake a beach towel at. St John cloaks two-thirds of its area in parkland and sublime shores, ripe for hiking and snorkeling. The largest Virgin, St Croix, pleases divers and drinkers with extraordinary scuba sites and rum factories.
The U.S. Virgin Islands are known for their white sand beaches, including Magens Bay and Trunk Bay, and strategic harbours, including Charlotte Amalie and Christiansted. Most of the islands, including Saint Thomas, are volcanic in origin and hilly. The highest point is Crown Mountain, Saint Thomas (1,555 ft/474 m). Saint Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, lies to the south and has a flatter terrain.
The National Park Service owns more than half of Saint John, nearly all of Hassel Island, and many acres of coral reef. once upon a time, earned it the nickname ‘Garden of the Antilles’ for its sugarcane-growing prowess. Today the island is known for its scuba diving, rum making, marine sanctuary and 18th century forts.
