US Virgin Islands
For travelers booking from the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands are a popular choice for a private yacht charter, as travel there is still exotic and there are plenty of airline options. While these islands belong within the United States territories, the predominant culture there is West Indian. This ethnic flavor is present everywhere from the music that plays from open doorways to the enticing aromas of the local cuisine.
Golf fans are never at a loss for things to do on St. Croix, with three golf courses available throughout the island. These courses include a 9-hole option for a leisurely morning strolling through beachside greenery, or two full-sized courses for those seeking a more intense world-class game. Nicholson Charters gets you access to these fabulous amenities in the U.S. Virgin Island area by providing you with a luxurious yacht charter to arrive at your chosen destination.
If you are looking for more in the way of stunning beaches, St. Thomas is an excellent choice for a stop over on your yacht charter vacation. Over 40 major beaches ring its shores, with perpetual sunlight helping you work on your holiday tan. Enjoy the local scenery of pristine blue water and exotic greenery. Your Virgin Islands yacht charter gives you access to plenty of fun beachside activities as well, from snorkeling or scuba to paddle boarding. It is the perfect blend of activity and leisure, good for both families needing a getaway that will keep the kids active and for couples who want to find a secluded spot to enjoy some romance.
Nature lovers can enjoy a day full of activity by sailing to St. John, where the local beaches fall under the protection of the National Park Service. Many people enjoy the eco-tours, taking the opportunity their Virgin Island yacht charter provides to take an adventure on a guided kayak tour or to hike through the Virgin Islands National Park. Glide over the lovely reefs on display through the clear, sparkling water, or enjoy a trek through the Reef Bay Trail.
A more tucked-away and secluded area of the U.S. Virgin Islands is Water Island. Just over 490 acres large, it joined the United States in 1996 and is occupied by fewer than 200 people. This hidden gem provides a few leisurely activities. You can take advantage of the less crowded beaches and enjoy soaking up the sun, the anchorages are very good. Plenty of hiking is available, and there are also historical sites where military fortifications used to stand. The local culture is very friendly, with community movie nights taking place on the beach. For the more active and ambitious, try a bike tour or just enjoy the sights from your yacht charter and breathe in the healthy sea air.
Plenty of culture, relaxation, and fun activities await in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in other destinations offered by Nicholson Charters, including the Grenadines. These popular destinations in the Caribbean make for the perfect getaway in a gorgeous tropical setting.
