Your Guide to the Best Beaches in the VI
Beaches are a hot commodity on the US Virgin Islands so there is something for everyone.

There are also beaches with activities like windsurfing and kayaking that will keep you or your children busy the whole day! If you want to get up close and personal with the local sea life you can rent snorkel or scuba diving equipment on many of these beaches. Some of the beaches are rocky and require some work to get to but once there you feel like a castaway while other beaches have restaurants, dive shops, and other amenities.
