Your US Virgin Islands vacation

A U.S. Virgin Islands vacation offers the full gamut of Caribbean experiences. The three principal islands - St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas - are magnificent tropical environments, each distinguished by its own personality.

St. Croix's Danish influence is perfect for a laid-back experience, complete with charming historic towns (Frederiksted and Christiansted), 18th-century sugar mills and scenic golf courses. Energetic St. Thomas boasts natural splendors, dining and nightlife -- especially in Charlotte Amalie. Two-thirds of St. John is a national park, where you'll find famed beaches like Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay and Salt Pond Bay.

Let Orbitz help you plan your U.S. Virgin Islands vacation. Our insiders profile the best time to go, top 10 highlights and insider gems.

Best time to take a trip to U.S. Virgin Islands

Blessed with year-round temperatures between the high-70s and low-80s, planning U.S. Virgin Islands travel can be relatively easy. The most popular time to vacation in U.S. Virgin Islands is mid-December through April, so plan your vacation well in advance. But if discount hotel rates and an island-to-yourself feeling are top priority, plan your trip between late spring and early December. Hurricane season officially runs from June through November, peaking in AugU.S.t and September.

The holidays are the same as celebrated in the U.S., but to join local festivities, January 6th (Three Kings Day) and March 31st (Transfer Day) come alive with parades, parties and more.

Things to do in U.S. Virgin Islands

Cruzan Rum Distillery (St. Croix)

Come for tastings and tours at this local rum distillery. See how rum is made, including historic old windmills and barrels.

Buck Island Reef National Park

The Buck Island Reef National Park is about as secluded as it gets. Accessible only by boat, bring an underwater camera to see tropical fish darting around the coral reef. Then relax on Turtle Beach's soft, white sands. Hike trails from Diedrichs Point or the West Beach to view frangipani trees, cactU.S., sandpiper trees and more.

Charlotte Amalie (St. Thomas)

There's more to Charlotte Amalie than souvenir shops and bars. Visit Fort Christian, St. Thomas's oldest structure, take the Skyride up to Paradise Point for stunning views and cocktails, and check out the French Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro gallery.

Coral World Ocean Park (St. Thomas)

Get up-close with iguanas and sea lions, and pet baby sharks. Feed turtles and string-rays, then check out the moray eels and tarpon in the massive Deep Reef Tank. Explore Marine Gardens teeming with scorpion fish, seahorses and more.

Virgin Islands National Park (St. John)

This stretch of preserved wilderness offers a crisscross of hiking trails across St. John. See historic sites like the plantation ruins of Annaberg, swim or snorkel along Trunk Bay or any of the beaches along the coast.

Mangrove Lagoon and Cas Cay Wildlife Sanctuary (St. Thomas)

Kayak through tiny red mangrove islands and see herons, egrets and pelicans. Arrive at Cas Cay island, a 15-acre wildlife preserve where you can hike and snorkel among tropical fish, rays and eels.

St. John

Grab your swimsuit and snorkels for some of the area's best beaches (Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay and Salt Pond Bay) located in the Virgin Islands National Park. But if shopping tops your itinerary, find plenty ashore in Cruz Bay's upscale Mongoose Junction.

St. Thomas

Experience Caribbean culture mixed with American familiarity. Sail to offshore cays, soak up the sun on postcard-perfect beaches and tour Magen's Bay where pirates once lurked. Explore the lU.S.h, mountainoU.S. interior, and enjoy dining, nightlife and duty-free shopping in Charlotte Amalie.

Blackbeard's Castle (St. Thomas)

Check out the Skytsborg, a 17th-century tower where the Danish (and some say infamoU.S. pirate Blackbeard) kept watch for enemy ships. Stop by the Inn at Blackbeard's Castle to enjoy a swimming pool and snack bar.
