10 Reasons to Visit the Virgin Islands
The Virgin Islands are full of white sandy beaches that nestle close turquoise waters. These islands are ideal for vacations. Here are ten reasons why most people love to holiday here.

1. The Virgin Islands are very similar to the Caribbean islands in terms of language and culture to an extent. As a result many tourists prefer this less popular destination in comparison to the Caribbean as a holiday spot in order to escape the crowds.

2. Water sports flourish on theses islands. The beaches are sandy heavens, with pure white sands contrasting deliciously with the crystal clear water of the deep blue sea. Many sports and activities are carried out on the shores, with snorkelling among the reefs and scuba diving to see the marine life down below. For those who are not into the wonders of the deep, there is yachting, sailing and surfing to keep them occupied.

3. Travelling to and fro to the Virgin islands is relatively easy, with flights taking off regularly from major airports. The convenience of travel makes this a popular destination as well.

4. These islands offer travellers good opportunities for hiking and trekking. The beaches are surrounded by blue misted peaks, as the mountain ranges tower over the islands. The effort of climbing up to these majestic pinnacles is rewarded by panoramic vistas of the Caribbean, and the exquisite flora and fauna that abound there.

5. The scenic beauty of the island draws many a tourist. In addition to this, there are plenty of places to sight see such as the Danish sugar mills, Drake's Seat, Bluebeard's Castle atop its mountainous peak, and so on.

6. Excellent golf courses, with amenities worthy of a world-class tournament are available for golf enthusiast to make use of, allowing for a golfing holiday.

7. These islands are excellent destinations for those who like travelling by sea and yachting as it is possible to go from one island to the next with ease. Each island has its own charming attractions, and each promises unique, diverse and memorable experiences. A great holiday experience would be charter a boat and sail from one island to the other

8. The Virgin Islands have all styles of accommodation, ranging from budget to ultra luxurious, thereby allowing everyone to experience the beauty that the islands have to offer.

9. The fine cuisine is another reason to visit the islands. Delicious food is available all over the island ranging from local specialties like grilled lobster at a beach barbeque or high end international cuisine atop exquisite restaurants in the mountains.

10. Shopping is a key attraction in the Virgin Islands, where most commodities are less expensive. Sometimes, bargain hunters can save so much money on shopping, that it actually compensates for the cost of the trip altogether.
