mainFor those who love a Caribbean escape without the hassle of making sure they have a passport or speak the language, the US Virgin Islands (USVI) are an excellent choice. The three big islands are popular honeymoon and wedding destinations. They fill up with sand and sun lovers all year round. Snorkeling, kayaking and hiking are also popular sports. And you can improve your tennis skills as well.

Here at WhyGo Caribbean we tried to select some of the best places to stay in the USVI for several types of travelers.


For a romantic escape

Nothing spells romance like a tucked away resort, somewhere in the USVI. You’ve got great weather, exotic food and a lot of intimacy. Soak up the sun during the day, walk hand in hand on the soft sand to watch the sun set and then spend a hot night in the room.

If you are looking for an adults-only place, then Gallows Point Resort is a good choice. There are excellent honeymoon packages available and you can even have them organize your wedding.

Generally speaking, the USVI aren’t exactly the cheapest place to spend a Caribbean vacation. However, if you are willing to sacrifice some facilities and stay further from the beaches, you can find some good places at decent prices.

For example, Club Comanche offers a laid back atmosphere complete with affordable prices. There are even romantic suites available, if you plan to spend your honeymoon on a low budget. All rooms have AC, TV and private bathroom.
