If you want to kick back and relax, the white sand beaches and cobalt blue waters are just perfect. The best-known beaches are found on St Thomas - Coki and Sapphire beaches are well worth a visit. Trunk Bay and Magens Bay, both on St Johns, are spectacular, but the gold is to be found beyond the three main islands.
Anchor in your own little corner of paradise off one of the thousands of islets and cays, with white sand beaches bordered by lush forest and crystalline waters. The variety of wildlife here is stunning, with more than 144 species of birds, butterflies and mongooses, iguanas and bats.
Whether you are a beginner or seasoned diver, there is something for everyone. Start with the Butler Bay wrecks then move onto Salt River Canyon, Frederiksted Pier, and Cane Bay. These last two often feature in the top 10 dive sites in the world. A must-see for divers is the wreck of the RMS Rhone, which went down in a hurricane in 1867. The well-preserved, 310-foot wreck lies in 85 feet of water and is home to a huge array of sea life – angelfish, black triggerfish and parrotfish, as well as providing a home for lobsters, eel and octopus.
