Beaches

The location of the US Virgin Islands allows access to the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Caribbean Sea to the south. The water is calm, turquoise and the sand is soft and white. If you’re ready for surfing, check out Hull Bay Beach on the north side of St Thomas, where the Atlantic Ocean offers better waves, or Sapphire Beach on the quieter south coast. In St John, head to Cinnamon Bay or Caneel Bay if you’re more into water sports and if you’re looking for a more private day at the beach, visit Salt Pond Bay and spend a day with wild donkeys. Cane Bay Beach is a favorite on St. Croix.

Annaberg sugar plantation

The original inhabitants of the Virgin Islands were the Ciboney, the Arawaks and the Caribs, but then Christopher Columbus visited in 1493 and eventually these people were used as slaves to first clean up the foliage to build the sugar plantations and then to plant, harvest and work sugar cane. After the abolition of slavery, the 518 acres were divided into smaller farms. Annaberg is the remains of one of these sugar plantations in St John. You can visit the site where there are remains of the factory, the windmill and the slave cabins. The US National Park Service has put up signs to provide information on your self-guided tour.

Salt River Bay National Historical Park

Founded by the United States Congress in 1992 and also managed by the United States National Parks Service, Salt River Bay National Park and Ecological Preserve provides a safe environment for many endangered and endangered species and offers visitors the opportunity to learn about these and other marine animals. History buffs love to visit this national park as the site of Columbus’ landing in 1493.
