Snorkeling in the USVI

U.S. Virgin Islands

The idea of a honeymoon with pristine beaches, world-class diving, sailing, shopping, hiking, local artwork and nightlife is what attracts newlyweds to the U.S. Virgin Islands. St. Thomas, St. John, and the larger St. Croix make up this Caribbean paradise. Each island is unique and has its own beauty. St. Croix has interesting architecture and rain forests. St. John is the smallest and is almost entirely covered by a national park. St. Thomas has one of the finest beaches in the Caribbean and all the activities to go with it.

There are many reasons to choose the U.S. Virgin Islands as your honeymoon destination but one of the biggest reasons, especially for honeymoon couples who don't travel out of the country, is that one doesn't need a passport. Of course, a U.S. Virgin Islands honeymoon is just the catalyst to unleash the wanderlust in everyone...and a passport will be on the top of your priority list.
