Overview

This spectacular archipelago set in the heart of the Caribbean attracts visitors by the boatload (literally and figuratively) with its warm climate and cool breezes. Join this much-admired mother-and-son team of authors as they introduce you to the highlights of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands, and Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Peter Island, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, Mosquito Island and Guana Island in the British Virgin Islands. Suggesting how to enjoy the islands to the fullest, they offer all kinds of entertainment for daytime fun - beaches, scuba diving, wind and body surfing, waterskiing, fishing, golfing, tennis, walking tours, sightseeing, shopping, charter boats. The After Dark section focusses on nightclubs, discos, evening cruises and more, with contact names and numbers given. In addition, the authors provide a thorough rundown of accommodations, from rustic beachside cabins to luxury resorts, with recommendations based on their own visits. Restaurant listings also come from first-hand experience, with ratings for each establishment. Each island has an A-Z section that lists all the basic traveler information - money matters, banking hours, emergency phone numbers, post office locations, etc. Town and regional maps, plus a full index.
