A full month in the U.S. Virgin Islands might best be enjoyed spending two weeks in St. Croix and another two weeks in St. Thomas/St. John. Here's the best of what to do.
Save Place
Virgin Island National Park, St John 00830, USVI
Hiking to sublime shores is a must during any visit to St. John. Taking a guided trek along the Reef Bay Trail also allows you to enjoy a boat ride. Park Rangers lead groups on the 2.2-mile long Reef Bay Trail on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning...

40 La Grange Rd, Frederiksted, VI 00841
Full moons tend to bring out the wild party side of most islands. In St. Croix, though, you can enjoy a more tranquil experience stand-up paddleboarding in Frederiksted. The fun goes down at the Freedom City Surf Board Shop and Grill, home to...

4020 Estate Saint John, Christiansted, VI 00820, USVI
Experience counts when it comes to fishing. You want to know that your guide/captain really knows the area – where the fish are biting and everything to be weary of to stay safe. In St. Croix, just such a captain is named Ben Garcia. The head guy...

Frederiksted, St Croix 00840, USVI
One of our stops while roaming around St. Croix was the Cruzan Rum Distillery. We got a private tour (because there wasn't anyone else there), sampled and purchased some unique flavors to bring back with us. In the photo you see one of the workers...
Save Place
Trunk Beach, St John 00830, USVI
Take a taxi from the St. John harbor to Trunk Bay in the National Park and then sit down and take it all in. If you want, they've got snorkel equipment to rent - worth it.

Rent a car (while possibly taking your life into your hands) and go to the other side of St John. Worth the drive for hiking, yachts, and Skinny Legs bar and grill.
Save Place
Little Maho Beach, St John 00830, USVI
The most perfect, untouched beach. Absolutely no on around.
Save Place
Honeymoon Beach, St John 00830, USVI
We hopped in a pick-up truck with a bench in the back (aka a Caribbean taxi) & headed toward Honeymoon Beach, St. John. I never would have discovered this hidden beach if it weren’t for the wonders of social media, but thank goodness I...
Save Place
Little Lameshur Bay, St John 00830, USVI
Driving down the bumpy road in a jeep made for a very uncomfortable ride. The road was uneven and in some places steep. The drive was tough! Once again, I was going on an adventure and I wondering if I was being unwise. We were searching for...
Save Place
St John, USVI
Tucked away on the secluded south coast of St. John in the Virgin Islands National Park, is none other than the majestic Lameshur Bay Beach. Surrounded by leafy Acacia trees and fringed with broad sea-grapes shrubs, this is untouched seclusion at...
Save Place
Honeymoon Beach, St Thomas 00802, USVI
Accessible by ferry from Charlotte Amalie, Honeymoon Beach is a 10 minute walk (or a golf cart hire) from the ferry terminal. I arrived with a towel, bathing suit, sunscreen and a book at 10am. There was virtually no-one on the beach and even when...
