Located 50 miles east of Puerto Rico and west of the British Virgin Islands are the US Virgin Islands. There are four main islands here Saint Croix, Saint John, Saint Thomas and Water Island as well as many surrounding minor islands and cays.
St Croix is 84 square miles with the east of the island being mainly rocky and grassy hillsides while the west of the island is beautiful with fruit trees, mountains, stunning beaches, and rolling pasture lands. Activities here include diving, water sports, golf, forest tours, outdoor concerts, and more. Three National Parks are within the island where you can learn all about marine life, take a peek at Danish colonial ways of life, and see prehistoric ruins.
St Thomas is 40 miles from St Croix and has one long ridge of hills running through the middle from east to west. St Thomas is a beautiful island with a natural harbor and protected bays and is mainly mountainous with terrific panoramic views. If you love the water, you have found the right place with all manner of water sports available. Land activities include island tours, soak up some history in downtown with historic houses, old churches, watch towers, and a fort. Explore a history museum, pirate museum, art galleries, and more or enjoy a shopping trip with a choice of duty-free shops, malls, and even hotels that offer shopping.
St John has hills and valleys and a coastal area with many protected bays. Over two thirds of the island is protected by the National Park Service giving you the opportunity to enjoy the natural resources of the island. Partake in forest hiking tours, see historical sugar plantation ruins, stroll around salt ponds, and over hills and valleys. Opportunities for snorkeling, wind surfing, sailing, island hopping, shopping and dining are plenty.
Water Island is the smallest of all four islands at just 2 and a half miles long by 1 mile wide. Days here are spent relaxing on the beach, strolling the shoreline, or hiking around the island. Enjoy movies on the beach and lunch with drinks at Honeymoon Bay. There are no taxis, public transport, gas stations, or main town here so residents rely on St Thomas for groceries and such like.
Deciding on the right island to set up home is key here, choose from beachfront homes in St Thomas and St John, hillside homes in St Croix, or a low maintenance style of living in condos throughout all the islands. Whatever your choice let the team at Echo Fine Properties help you with you search.
