U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS St. Croix St. Thomas St. John FLY Delta’s new Atlanta-to-St. Croix nonstop flight makes the island more accessible than ever. From here, it’s a quick 25-minute seaplane to St. Thomas.

STAY Split your time between The Buccaneer, a family-owned pink palace on St. Croix, and The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas, where a couple’s massage in the spa gazebo is a breezy treat.

DO Take the ferry from St. Thomas for a day trip of snorkeling and hiking on St. John two-thirds of the island is protected national parkland.


From it a road heads up and over the busy railway line to reach the Bowling road (A814). Across the road there is a bus stop for buses back to Clydebank/Glasgow, a service operating about every quarter of an hour. For trains, a ten-minute walk west along the main road leads to the station. A car park is passed on the way, overlooking the Old Bowling Basin, and visiting cars should be parked here, not down by the travel destination basin. The Companion again: ‘there are few foreign landscapes whose beauties really excel those of the scenes just described. There are few landscapes that unite the cultivated charms, rural scenery, and lofty mountain grandeur, which are so finely blended on the Forth & the Clyde.’ Good manners and friendliness are the basics to ensure safety on travel destination towpaths. Think of other users. Follow the Country Code, and see it as a charter of freedom, not a restriction. Destination byelaws do not allow horse-riding, motorbike or vehicle use of the towpath.
