We ran across a great web site with an article titled, “The Complete Guide To: The Virgin islands” which we wanted to share.

An overview:

“The dozens of Virgin Islands comprise part of the Leeward Islands, and are scattered across an arc of the Caribbean east of Puerto Rico and north-west of Antigua. To the north, they face out to the Atlantic; to the south, the warmer waters of the Caribbean. They offer the purest essence of yo-ho-ho Treasure Island Caribbean: in just half a day’s sailing you can drop anchor and swim to white-sand beaches free from sunloungers and ‘cocktail time!’ service flags. No resorts can claim ownership of their beaches, so even the inhabited ones are yours for the taking.”

The article discusses accommodations, travel, prices, destinations, things to do, places to go, diving, and more. An example of a St. Croix description: “Carringtons Inn (001 340 713 0508); on St Croix is one of the most utterly charming guest houses in the Caribbean. There’s a cute private pool and four poster beds in the brightly coloured rooms. Resident hosts Roger and Claudia can point you in all the right directions for the best fortnight’s stay possible. Doubles start at £87 per night room only, but including an energy surcharge.
