The United States Virgin Islands (USVI) in a nutshell
The United States Virgin Islands (USVI) archipelago is located in the eastern Caribbean is located approximately 1,100 miles from Miami, 600 miles from Venezuela, around 40 miles from Puerto Rico, and very near the British Virgin Islands (BVI). There are three main tourism islands – St Croix (approx. 85 square miles), St John (approx. 20 square miles), and hilly St Thomas (approx. 30 square miles). Each of the islands are very different in character and offer a range of adventure activities: St Croix has a Danish feel, a national park covers around two-thirds of the tranquil island of St John, and bustling St Thomas – a busy cruise port-of-call – boasts lively nightlife, the best in duty-free shopping and sophisticated restaurants. Although the islands are part of the USA, driving is on the left hand side of the road. Regular ferry services connect the major US Virgin Islands as well as to the BVI.
