Virgin Islands Attractions, What to See. US - BVI Travel Guide and Online Tourist Information

The US Virgin Islands are filled with attractions. Buck Island usually is number one for snorkeler’s and scuba divers, because the island is surrounded by a coral reef. Christiansted on St Croix is a beautiful town with a perfect harbor. The old fort was built in 1774 to protect the town from pirates. The original Dutch architecture, streets and pastel warehouses make the town a big tourist stop. Charlotte Amalie on St.Thomas is another site worth visiting. The harbor, houses, streets and Danish merchant warehouses bring a colonial island charm to the city that’s unforgettable. Blackbeard’s Castle, on Government Hill, is a perfect place to view the harbor and the duty-free shopping offers visitors some great bargains.
