The white sand beaches of the virgin islands are world famous for their inherent beauty. AVIA charters can take you to anyone of them. Our captain is often asked which one is the best. His answer... depends on the vibe you are looking for. Some are known for their party atmosphere and others through pop culture. There are some just big enough to fit two butts on and some are over a mile long. Some of the beaches are always populated while others are virtually undiscovered. One thing they all have in common, they make for a perfect day! And it just so happens that there are enough to go around for everyone.

Hiking

There are many hiking options in the virgin islands. Some of the hikes are accessible by land but many are more easily accessed by boat. Besides, what better way to start and end your hike than in the Caribbean Sea?  While checking out any of these hikes, keep your eyes out for mongoose, deer, green parrots, virgin island tree boas and much, much more. Straight from snorkeling, hike up to the The ruins of Annaberg Sugar Mills. Now protected and maintained by the St John National Park, Annaberg is of the oldest and largest sugar plantations that once thrived in the virgin islands. You can also check out the reef bay trail that starts off with the last working sugar mill in St John. Then hike your way up to the petroglyphs. These rock carvings are thought to be the work of the pre-Columbian Tiano people possibly dating back 3000 years!
