On the surface, choosing a Caribbean island for your vacation sounds easy. No matter which island you choose, you’re sure to find warm weather, beautiful beaches, and fresh seafood – all the makings of a perfect tropical vacation. But upon closer inspection, you’ll quickly realize that while the islands of the Caribbean have a lot in common, they are all unique. The islands that make up the Virgin Islands are no exception.
Each of the Virgin Islands has it’s own culture and appeal. While some offer a luxurious experience, others are more laid back. And while some are ideal for those who want an empty beach, others are best for those who prefer more infrastructure on their island escape. Figuring out which island best fits your needs can be tricky, so we’ve but together a guide that tells you how to choose a Virgin Islands vacation. Check it out to learn more about each island and what it offers to travelers in terms of accommodation, dining, and activities.
In addition to figuring out which island is the best match for your travel style, there are a few other factors to consider when choosing a Virgin Island. Start by searching for airfare to the British Virgin Islands and the US Virgin Islands and see which islands are the easiest to get to from your home airport. Some islands are only accessible via boat, which will add time to your travels; if you only have a few days, you may want to choose an island that is easier to reach. Next, take a look at which Virgin Island hotels fit your budget; some islands are known for having more inexpensive options while others cater to the jet set. Luckily, there’s enough variety that you’ll be able to find an island that fits both your travel style and your budget.
