US Virgin Islands

Virgin Islands of the United States

Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, the Virgin Islands are famed for its white sand beaches, crystal-blue waters and idyllic sailing venues.

The U.S. Virgin Islands which consists of almost 50 cays and islands, includes the islands of St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas.

Tourism is the major business, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are closely associated with the economy and culture of the British Virgin Islands.

During the 17th century, the archipelago was divided into two territorial units, one English and the other Danish. Sugarcane, produced by slave labor, drove the islands' economy during the 18th and early 19th centuries. In 1917, the US purchased the Danish portion, which had been in economic decline since the abolition of slavery in 1848.
