Family Resorts In The US Virgin Islands

US Virgin Islands, Elysian Beach ResortThe US Virgin Islands are a beautiful part of the Caribbean and very popular with holiday makers. The islands themselves are in the vicinity of the Lesser Antilles. These islands used to be called the Danish West Indies before they were sold to the U.S. and this means that the culture here is an eclectic mix of Danish and West Indian cultures, which is also reflected in the local cuisine.

The US Virgin Islands are mostly reliant on tourism and no wonder with their beautiful white beaches and turquoise waters. There are many family resorts in the US Virgin Islands here that cater to families as well. For example the Ritz-Carlton resort on the island of St. Thomas is a great choice for people with young children. It has been renovated recently and now even offers snorkeling and scuba diving outings for children. There are also children’s’ programs available for children between the ages of five and twelve. Of course they also have babysitting services so you can enjoy some alone time with your partner in this romantic destination. You will still be able to enjoy your family time together – whether it is enjoying the local cuisine or simply enjoying yourselves on the beach and splashing in that beautiful warm water.

Another family resort to consider is the Buccaneer at St. Croix. Here there are lots of beach activities and also golf. It is only five miles away from the historic and charming town of Christiansted which is a good way to spend of a day simply looking around. The Buccaneer also offers lots of activities for children, including scavenger hunts and pirate storytelling. They have special rates for families so it is definitely worth checking out.

Another great resort is Westin St. John Resort and Villas which is a beautiful resort and the water is warm and so inviting. Here there is not so much commercialism and the beach is private so if you want some rest and relaxation with your family, check this one out.

These islands with their family resorts offer a perfect way for you and your family to enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean.
