The hills, valleys, and tropical rainforest of Virgin Islands National Park tell only half the story, with just as much (if not more) to be found under the sea.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Coral Bay and Cinnamon Bay Nature Trail. Step out of the city life by going to Trunk Bay and Reef Bay Trail. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Francis Bay, see the interesting displays at Cinnamon Bay Archeology Museum & Lab, steep yourself in history at Annaberg Sugar Plantation, and enjoy the sand and surf at Maho Bay.

To see other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Virgin Islands National Park road trip planning website.

There's lots more to do: stroll around Phantasea Tropical Botanical Garden, examine the collection at Pirates Treasure Museum, stroll through Bluebeard's Beach, and stop by Ballerina Jewelers.

You can plan Charlotte Amalie trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
