Virgin Islands Forum

The Virgin Islands are part of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean Sea where the Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean. The Virgin Islands are divided into two political entities; on the east, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, and over fifty other smaller islands are administered as an overseas territory of the United Kingdom; and in the west, St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas, and Water Island are governed as an unincorporated territory of the United States.

If you are looking to connect with someone in the Virgin Islands, travel there, learn about the location or buy a property it is possible to do so through the forum. Simply do an online search using the words "Virgin Islands Forums" and a list will be presented via a web search.

West of the Virgin Islands lie the islands of Vieques and Culebra, that since a 1990s tourist campaign have re-christened themselves the Spanish Virgin Islands, though they are seldom identified as such on maps and atlases. The "Spanish Virgin Islands", or Passage Islands, are just east of Puerto Rico, and governed as part of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Natives speak Spanish, and the culture is similar to Puerto Rico. Vieques and Culubra belonged to Spain prior to the Spanish-American War in 1898. Though the islands are not labeled part of the Virgin Islands archipelago, some argue that Vieques and Culebra are geographically part of the Virgin Islands chain, and note that Vieques and Culebra are closer to St. Thomas, than St. Thomas is to St. Croix.
