- Charlotte Amalie: St. Thomas, just 40 miles from Puerto Rico, is a popular cruise ship destination, so it’s naturally the most developed of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Charlotte Amalie, the principal city of St. Thomas, offers a variety of Indian and Danish influences, and is rich in pirate lore. The tropical climate makes Charlotte Amalie a prefect destination for relaxing on the beach and enjoying cool ocean breezes.
- Christiansted: This town, located on St. Croix, can be a fantastic cultural stop along your bareboat Virgin Islands adventure. The islanders have preserved the 18th century Danish buildings, which were built by African slaves. Mingle with the locals as you stroll along the cobblestone streets, or take a walking tour on the waterfront. You’ll also find several scuba shops in Christiansted, which is perfect for your diving adventure off the coast of this island paradise. Another wonderful experience is the Cruzan rum factory, which is a short drive from Christiansted.
- St. John: Although there are a few cities on this island, over 60 percent of its land area is covered by a national forest. St. John is an ideal choice for your bareboat Virgin Islands vacation is you want to get away from the tourists and the busy activity of the other islands.
