Water Island, USVI
Tiny Water Island is the newest member of the four US Virgin Islands. Just off the coast of St. Thomas, you’ll love Water Island’s star attraction, Honeymoon Beach. Coconut palm trees line the shore and the water gently rolls onto the white sand beach. Because the island is small and the only way to get there is by boat, the crowds are pretty much non-existent. There are coral reefs, sea turtles and colorful parrotfish everywhere you look, and on the beach, there’s a couple of bar and grills where you can grab a drink or snack. The whole Water Island vibe is one of seclusion–there’s only a few cars on the island and it’s 200 residents keep to themselves. If you want to escape the crowds while staying on the U.S. side of the Virgin Islands (no customs required!), visit Honeymoon Beach on Water Island!
