CHARLOTTE AMALIE — The U.S. Virgin Islands made USA Today’s list of the “Best Beaches in the Caribbean, 2018 Edition.”

The article in their Travel Section features St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John. It also highlights Puerto Rico, Anguilla and Sint Maarten.

“After months of post-hurricane cleanup, most of the beaches have been cleared on all three of the Virgin Islands,” USA Today wrote. “In St. Thomas, there are 53 beaches, including Magens Bay north of the capital city of Charlotte Amalie. Ideal for families who come for the calm waves and shallow water, the beach gets crowded by noon when the cruise ships are in port.”

USA Today highlighted St. John this way.

“In St. John, Trunk Bay on the northwestern corner of the Virgin Islands National Park is one of the most photographed in the Caribbean,” the online newspaper said. “The tranquil surf and Underwater Snorkel Trail keep the beach busy with swimmers, divers and sailors who pay a $4 admission fee to hang out all day.”

The nation’s top selling newspaper also featured St. Croix.

“In St. Croix, the beaches are the star attractions with Turtle Beach on the northeast side aces with snorkelers and Chenay Bay popular with families,” USA Today wrote.
