Atmosphere

Water Island is the newest and 4th US Virgin Island, I think it was purchased from the Dutch in the early 20's, it's only about a half mile wide and about 2 and a half miles long, no stores or anything, there is a post office though, bring water and food.

General

really fun getaway from the crowd's of St.Thomas, also Sprat Bay is very Beautiful even if there is no surf, it's a great place to swim, snorkel, fish, or just lime (realax,chill).
