Most Relaxing Island? Water Island!


Things to Do

Honeymoon Beach located on Water Island is unlike any other beach I visited while in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  I know, I told you Coki Beach was the best beach in U.S.V.I. and that it was my favorite, but to be honest, they are tied with each other.  The beaches themselves, and the vibes they offer […]
