7 Seaside Villas in the US Virgin Islands for Your Next Squad Getaway
Though the US Virgin Islands are always popular in the colder months, it’s a well-kept secret among locals that the best time to visit the islands is after the onslaught of tourists has departed in March. The trade winds keep the islands much cooler than the sweaty streets of New York City, and the rates drop considerably. Mid-December to mid-April is the high season in the Virgin Islands of St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John, although it seems to extend longer every year as people catch onto the fact that winter is not the only time to visit America’s Caribbean paradise. Nowadays, the islands remain busy through July.
