This island is sparsely populated, and there are few resorts suitable for swimming. The most visited is Poipu Bay. Tourists are offered a standard set of services: showers, toilets, picnic tables, benches. Recreation is controlled by lifeguard service.

The bottom is strewn with sea urchins, the water is inhabited by poisonous jellyfish. There is no rescue service, so in case of trouble, you must rely on yourself.

2. Oahu

Resorts on the island of Oahu are the most famous and the most crowded. The central beach is located in Honolulu. It is called Waikiki. The ocean here is warm throughout the year, but the strong wave and wind destroy the sand with enviable regularity. Just as regularly it is poured again.

The infrastructure is fairly common. Tourists are offered sun beds, umbrellas to protect from the sun. There are showers, toilets, cabins for changing. On the coast there are many places to eat. You can try the national Hawaiian cuisine. Kuhio Bay is more deserted. It is not far from Waikiki and the topography and infrastructure is quite similar to the first. Here come those guests who are looking for peace and solitude.

This island of the Virginian archipelago once belonged to Denmark and was a favorite of pirates. They used to replenish their fresh water supplies and take refuge from pursuit here. Then it was bought back by the United States. Today, St. Thomas is loved by tourists all over the world.
