Lying to the northern tip of the Leeward Islands and closely located to Puerto Rico, the three islands within this quaint archipelago are known as St Croix, St Thomas, and St John. Although each is unique in its own right, the trio encompasses a myriad of first-class facilities, premier seaside resorts and picture-perfect anchorages. Cruising along the translucent waters of the Caribbean, a yacht charter to the US Virgin Islands exudes the epitome of relaxation.

St Croix
Relatively rugged and somewhat off the beaten-track, St Croix is the largest of the three islands and lies 40 miles south of its sibling island St Thomas. Brimmed with lush rainforests, sugar plantations and rum distilleries, St Croix is the less visited of the three islands giving it an air of exclusivity. This refreshingly slow paced island boasts some of the finest cuisine in the area and is renowned for two main towns, Christiansted and Frederiksted. For shopping lovers, the restored Danish port of Christiansted offers boutique shopping in addition to remnants of Danish culture whereas the Victorian-looking Frederiksted is often explored for its tropical rainforest and exciting pirate ruins.

St Thomas
The busiest of the islands, St Thomas is teeming with opulent hotels and inviting restaurants and bars. Often the most popular of the three, St Thomas is no stranger to the tourist crowds, though shopping lovers will enjoy elegant boutique shopping with sublime beaches waiting to catch the spenders who shop ‘til they drop. Home to the bustling capital of Charlotte Amalie, visitors looking for a thrill will love the 700ft skylift which provides excellent views from the top of the town. With many opportunities for surfing, kayaking, hiking and snorkelling St Thomas offers a plethora of adrenaline fuelled activities in addition to an exuberant nightlife, with casinos and bars aplenty.

St John
Although just a mere 3 miles away from the neighbouring island of St Thomas, St John could be a world away. Largely protected as national parkland, St John is laced with secluded bays and pirate ruins and has earned a reputation as the region’s most lovely island. With tropical hills and beautiful arced sandy beaches at Trunk Bay, St John is romantic, remote and perfect for lovers of the outdoors. With opportunities to snorkel and hike or simply wind down in the sun, this island offers sumptuous relaxation of the highest calibre.
