Famous for the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1493, the US Virgin Islands are without doubt a place of wondrous natural beauty. The islands consist of Saint Crox, Saint John and Saint Thomas along with the much quainter but historically important Water Island. The climate on the Islands is typically tropical which is tempered by predominantly easterly trade winds.
Mountain ranges dominate the interior landscape of the Islands which are densely covered in lush greenery. Beaches here are plentiful and the pristine white sands continue for mile upon mile. If calm and serenity is what you are hankering after then the US Virgin Islands are the perfect location. Yachting here is an absolute dream come true due to the easily navigable waters and picturesque anchorages.
