The Virgin Islands!

Idyllic white-sand beaches and crystal clear seas draw many visitors to Virgin Islands National Park each year – and what waits underwater is just as breathtaking. The park includes 5,650 acres of land beneath the ocean, including fragile coral gardens, beautiful seascapes, and resplendent ocean life. Trunk Bay is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and has the only underwater snorkeling trail in the United States.

History

History

In 1493 Christopher Columbus took a little visit to the great Virgin Islands. He had been restlessly scavenging for a route to India, he had consequently called the people living there Indians. Columbus named the beautiful islands 'The Virgins' in reference to the legendary beauty of St. Ursula and her 11,000 virgins. The Danish West India Company first attempted to settle St. Thomas in 1665. They successfully established a settlement on St. Thomas in 1672 consisting of 113 inhabitants.
