The fiance and I are looking into a honeymoon to the Virgin Islands, but don’t know which one to pick. We are looking for romance, a little privacy (not to populated). What to pick… St. Thomas, St. John or St. Croix.

Great choice! I love the Virgin Islands. I think St. Croix may be your best bet on privacy. Have you considered talking to a travel agent? You don’t have to pay a travel agent, and ours was an invaluable resource when planning our honeymoon. They know all of the charactertistics of the islands and could probably help you choose the most honeymoon-friendly. 🙂

Thank you Gemstone! I was not aware that we wouldn’t have to pay a travel agent, I was trying to stay clear of them because I thought that would be extra money! After learning this though we will have to go to our local one this coming week!

You absolutely can’t go wrong on these three. My vote is for St. John’s because if I recall correctly it’s a little smaller and I thought a little more private. Agree that you should consider talking to a travel agent though. Good luck, sounds like an awesome honeymoon.

I am absolutely in love with the USVI!! I have been my whole life and I finally went this past summer. We stayed on St. Thomas and made a day trip to St. John. My vote is absolutely for St. John!! It is much more private than St. Thomas and the beaches are breath taking. Trunk Bay was amazing but pretty crowded and Cinnamon Bay was even better (IMO) and almost no one was there.
I would suggest spending a day or so on St. Thomas. It is also absolutely beautiful and has alot to offer. They have more touristy things to do and I loved Magens Bay.

I’ve been to St. Thomas twice (honeymoon included) and if you want privacy, St. John would be a fantastic choice! St. Thomas is more populated, but has so many fun things to do. There is a ferry at Red Hook that you can take back and forth between the two islands! I love the Virgin Islands!!

I voted St. Thomas, but I am biased because I am getting married there. Its gorgeous! 🙂

I’ve been to St. Thomas and St. John. St. Thomas is definitely more touristy, with St. John being quieter, but also more expensive!

I looked at getting married on all 3 islands. St. Thomas is definitely the more populated of the 3 but the other two are very expensive. We chose to stay in St. Thomas and do day trips to the other islands. You can’t go wrong with any of the options they are all beautiful places.

A group of us and our friends went on a 7 day cruise of the islands: St. Thomas, St. Luica, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, Dominica and Barbados and it was amazing (an really cheap – each person paid $680 total for round trip airfare to Puerto Rico and the 7 night cruise). The best islands we visited were by far Barbados, St. Kitts and St. Maarteen. St. Thomas was also nice – especially Magen’s Bay beach.

@carrot12: I’m originally from St. Croix, so I think I can help you out a bit here. St. Thomas is the most populated of the three islands, so I don’t think it may be what you’re looking for. St. John has the best beaches of the three with Trunk Bay being a personal favorite. It’s also the least populated of the islands and has great resorts. If you’re into hiking, scuba diving, and a more historical adventure, St. Croix would be the best island for this. Feel free to PM me for more information 🙂

Ah, VI. My father is from St. Croix, so we have been there, and as PP said – it’s less romantic/beachy, still wonderful though. I’d say the other two are a bit more typical tourist destination. From my understanding (and what my father has said), a lot of the beaches and beauty of the St. Croix landscape have been a bit destroyed over the past 40 years of hurricanes. STILL great, just not as pristine.
