Representing the largest and smallest of the United States Virgin Islands, respectively, St Croix and Water Island are the lesser known and lesser visited islands of our territory but hold lovely surprises for those who choose to venture off the beaten path.
St. Croix, USVI
Located 40 miles south of St. Thomas, St. Croix is the largest of the four main islands. To get there from St. Thomas is an open water sail and few charter boats want to take the time (one day over, one day back) to go there. However, if you have time, you can take a ferry or seaplane over and rent a car to explore this relatively unspoiled and less touristy island. The island is surrounded by the largest island barrier reef in the Caribbean and thus is the destination for world class scuba diving. The Wall is a mere quarter of a mile offshore gently sloping at first to drop to thousands of feet.
Water Island, USVI
Water Island, located just across from St. Thomas, is almost entirely residential and one of the most peaceful and relaxing spots in the Virgins. The sand is white and soft under the feet, the waters are warm and gin-clear and, when the visibility is good, you can see Puerto Rico’s El Yunque mountain to the west.
If you meet your crewed yacht charter at Crown Bay Marina, near the airport, this idyllic anchorage might well be your first or last night on your one week, USVI/BVI luxury yacht charter.
On the beach, there are two excellent beach bars, Heidi’s Honeymoon Grill and Dinghy’s Beach Bar and Grill. Heidi serves up lunches every day and truly gourmet meals each Saturday night during season for fine dining with your toes in the sand. Dinghy’s has great music, cold beverages and blender drinks to chill you out as well as delicious food. There are walking trails and golf cart rentals to explore this intriguing island.
