"Hiking and Diving" Virgin Islands National Park by grandmaR
Virgin Islands National Park Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 15 photos
Almost all of St. John in the USVI is a National Park. The park also includes some of the surrounding water, reefs and beaches.
In October of 1995, my husband suddenly said to me - we are going to Bermuda for Thanksgiving and the Virgin Islands for Christmas. I persuaded him that I didn't want to be away for Christmas. We did go to Bermuda. Then finally at the end of January 1997 we went to the Virgin Islands. We stayed in Cruz Bay
We took the Reef-Bay trail and other National Park Service walks, visited Anneberg Sugar mill, snorkeled at Cinnamon Bay and went to a night slide presentation, shopped and visited various restaurants. Then we chartered a sailboat with a crew.
That Thanksgiving we chartered another sailboat with the same crew. At that time my husband also tried scuba diving for the first time and discovered he liked it.

- Cons:Expensive and few options except big hotels, renting a villa, or camping
- In a nutshell:Emerald Jewel with wonderful beaches
