Water Island, St. Thomas
Categories: Islands, Nature & Parks
The smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Water Island boasts a rich history and pristine tropical beaches. The Taino first settled the island in the 15th century; later, Denmark had claims on its territory, as did free Afro-Caribbeans, who owned and ran their own cotton plantations. Take a ferry to the tiny island, where you can lounge on the soft white sand under the shade of palm trees. Swim in the calmer waters, or head to rockier, more secluded spots for snorkeling and scuba diving among the wild coral reefs. The diverse marine life here includes vibrantly colored fish and sea turtles. Put Water Island at the forefront of your travel plans using our Charlotte Amalie tour planner.
