Destination: U.S. Virgin Islands
Maybe it’s the inaccessibility (it can only be reached by boat) or maybe it’s the unspoiled natural beauty (more than half of the island is protected National Park), but St. John has a barefoot chic that’s all its own. The smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, it is ringed by exquisite white sand beaches and coral reefs. But for those who like the good life, there are also great restaurants and a world-class resort. Read about where to shop and what to do on St. John.
Reports on St. Croix and St. Thomas will be posted soon.
