A 15th-century beach retreat without the crowds

You may be fooled when you first arrive at Water Island. Embrace the tranquilityÑit's exactly what you can expect day in and day out on this pleasant island that is home primarily to residents and charming rentals. If you've booked a Water Island vacation rental, don't worry about navigating heavy throngs of people. Without commercial establishments, the island focuses largely on offering visitors the creature comforts of home. Of course, home probably doesn't have the same fascinating historyÑWater Island was first settled in the 15th century!

Things to do

There once was a World War II fortress...

For all its quiet solitude, Water Island is still home to a fascinating attraction. Fort Segarra is a history lover's delight; it was designed to be a United States defense strategy location during World War II. Although the war ended before the fort was used, it is now a popular destination that showcases everything from underground meeting rooms to tunnels. On St. Thomas, don't miss the fascinating Pirates Treasure Museum and St. Thomas Synagogue. Kids in particular will appreciate the interactive exhibits at The Virgin Islands Children's Museum.

Activities

Experience solitude, or ferry your way to resort bliss

Hop on the ferry to St. Thomas if you want to bulk up on your daily activities. Sticking to your Water Island vacation rental is more than welcome, tooÑthere's nothing better than soaking up the sunshine. Otherwise, check out the specialty boutiques on St. Thomas, and get to know the area better by boarding a boat. It's a great way to indulge your inner adventurer with the family. What would an island getaway be without a massage at a luxe spa? And no trip to St. Thomas is complete without sampling the lively nightlife. Pop into a bar to catch a performance.

Weather

Into each day a little rain must fall

The good news is that packing for Water Island is easy. You'll need sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun's powerful rays, and you may want to add a cover-up in the event of a cool breeze. Otherwise, enjoy mostly pleasant weather dailyÑjust be aware that rain is more or less always forecast in the Virgin Islands. If you're traveling in fall, rain is even more likely to, well, fall. Winter is a generally mild affair, with temperatures ranging from around 70 degrees to the mid-80s. How can you go wrong?
