Virgin Islands with a difference
The U.S. Virgin Islands are among the top tourist destinations in the Caribbean. Located in the Lesser Antilles, between the North Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, this American territory includes about 50 islands and cays, the largest of which are St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John. After a turbulent history with many occupations, the islands reflect their Danish influence most prominently with some beautiful examples of neoclassical Danish architecture. Natural beauty is another asset. Lush mountains, tropical forests, curving beaches, and rocky coves are sprinkled throughout all the islands; yet each exudes its own unique character.St Thomas, the most visited of the islands, is the gateway to the archipelago.
