One of the most common questions we receive is, “What is your favorite Island?”  It’s a toss up for me and is usually situational. Here are our Top Five Islands to Visit in the Virgin Islands:

  1. Anegada- Known as the sunken island, Anegada is our only Coral Atoll and boasts miles of white sand beaches, pink flamingos, and if you’re lucky enough to spot them, Rock iguanas. The reefs around Anegada are as famous for shipwrecks as they are for their incredible diving and snorkeling. Loblolly Beach is a favorite among everyone who visits because of its beauty, delicious lobster lunches, and great cold drinks. Anegada is one of the harder islands to access because it’s a pretty far distance and over a large section of open ocean, but absolutely worth it if the weather is cooperating. Anegada BVI
  2. Saba Rock- This island is our favorite for an over night trip to get away from Saint John for a little bit! It’s both a restaurant and bar that is self contained.  We love Saba, this tiny little rock has multiple hotel rooms and a fantastic lunch. They also have the coolest salt water tank with giant Moray Eels inside, thats always fun to check out! A great happy hour and their close location to Bitter End Yacht Club makes for a really perfect spot for a quick getaway. Happy hour at Saba Rock Saba Rock
  3. Cooper Island– Another fun location that is both a hotel and restaurant on a very small island. Eco-Friendly and serving a delicious lunch, Cooper Island is a sure bet for one of the Top Five Islands to Visit in the Virgin Islands.  They also have a great happy hour complete with a Rum Bar, Darts, and great specials.  The food is great for lunch but even better for cocktail hour and dinner.  Highly recommend for an overnight trip!
  4. Jost Van Dyke– We have to include Jost in our Top Five Islands to Visit post for obvious reasons.  Beyond the joy of relaxing and spending the day at White Bay enjoying drinks at Soggy Dollar Bar and Hendos Hidout, it’s a legitimate gem of an island.  Super quaint with roughly 300 inhabitants and copious amounts of bars and restaurants, it’s also home to one of the most famous New Year’s Eve Parties in the world.  One of our favorite lunch time restaurants is Foxy’s Taboo, located on the Far East End of Jost Van Dyke. Jost van Dyke
  5. Virgin Gorda– There is so much more to Virgin Gorda than just The Baths.  We recommend so many times for people to really spend time exploring this beautiful island, we haven’t even come close to exploring it enough! We love visiting The Bitter End and spending time up there.  Virgin Gorda is small but a wonderful place to stay with so many great restaurants and the proximity to Saba Rock and Anegada makes it ideal for anyone wanting a little bit more adventure on their vacation! Virgin Gorda, BVI
