3 Reasons to Book a Solo Travel Getaway to the Virgin Islands

Feeling overwhelmed by the daily grind? Hour after hour of demands and deadlines, interrupted only by the buzz of technology notifications…. Sound familiar? How about….the Virgin Islands?

Beautiful Virgin Islands

It’s time to schedule a trip – with yourself.

Whether you’re approaching burnout or taking preventive measures to stave it off, it’s time to unplug from the rest of the world and re-learn how to enjoy your own company. And there’s no better place than the Virgin Islands, a treasure trove of sandy beaches and turquoise waters, where you can reap these healthful benefits:

  • Find out who you are

Make some time to figure out who you are and what you’ve become. Discover new interests, acquire new tastes, and log exciting new memories.

Travel Log:

-Explore new things to love: From exciting adventures like zip lining, kiteboarding, and night kayaking, to sampling local delicacies like callaloo, conch, and pates.

-Treat yourself to the ultimate journey of self-discovery – a custom, multi-island tour led by a local boat captain. Here’s your chance to uncover the best snorkeling spots, find the hottest island drink (ahem, Painkillers), and go on a quest to find the most tranquil, unspoiled island.

  • Time to unwind

Time alone gives you the chance to clear your mind, focus, recharge. The benefits? Increased productivity and creativity when you return home. Pulitzer prize–winning writer John Updike observes: “It is often in idle moments that real inspiration comes.”

Travel Log:

Relax in St. John’s Cinnamon Bay, a pristine island oasis.

-Virgin Gorda, BVI is the ideal spot to get some refresh time.

Find time for YOU!

  • Freedom to be flexible

Maybe you’re at everyone else’s mercy when you’re back home, but on this trip, you can do whatever you want. No schedule, no expectations. The choice is yours.

Travel Log:

-Head over to Maho Bay in St. John for superb snorkeling without the crowds. Turtle spottings are pretty much instantaneous in this locale!

And in your quest for bliss, take the words of Roy M. Goodman to heart: Remember that happiness is a way of travel—not a destination.”
