The delightful beaches in the US Virgin Islands are touted by locals as some of the most anticipated tourist sites that the islands have to offer.

If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, Buccaneer has what you need. This lodging is situated right on the water, so guests can spend as much time as they like soaking up the sun if that is what they want to do. This location is not located within the more congested parts of the Virgin Islands, meaning guests here will oftentimes find themselves alone on the beach, giving them the opportunity to listen to the waves coming in, rather than the crowds of people going by.
