About the U.S. Virgin Islands

There are 3 US Virgin Islands, St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John.  St. Croix is the largest of the 3 islands and is located 45 miles south of the other two islands.  The busy St. Thomas is a frequent destination for cruise ships each year.  Charlotte Amalie, the capitol of the US Virgin Islands, is located on the busy island of St. Thomas.  Approximately 60% of St. John, the smallest of the US Virgin Islands, is protected as the Virgin Islands National Park.
