Tourism is the number one industry on the Virgin Islands, which include the islands of St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix, and as a result, vacationers are greeted by friendly faces and choose from numerous relaxing and exciting activities. People visiting the Virgin Islands from the continental United States feel the difference between staying on vacation islands and the mainland right away. Island residents are laid back and seemingly carefree, and their positive attitudes are contagious.

Having Fun on the Virgin Islands

On the Virgin Islands, the predominant business is pleasure. People can sail on the blue Caribbean Sea, board charter fishing boats, rent jet skis, and go water tubing. Couples have plenty of romantic dining options on all three islands, and families can eat at places kids will enjoy. For the ultimate in convenience, travelers can book vacations at all-inclusive resorts, where they enjoy gourmet food and unlimited drinks without opening their wallets.

Because resort companies strive to make their facilities feel like paradise, they constantly add new amenities, like golf courses. To some people, a vacation is hardly an escape without golf. Many resorts have on-premises internet stations for people who want to read the news and email their friends and family back home. Virgin Island hotels often feature health and beauty spas. Few services refresh the body and mind like professional massages.

Some Virgin Island resorts have bars that open as early as 11 AM and don't close until two o'clock in the morning. Many of these bars are situated right on the water, giving people the opportunity to enjoy cold drinks while looking out at the water. At night, vacationers find entertainment at bars and nightclubs that play dance and island music.
