Book Description

"One of the highly portable and information packed titles in the outstanding 'Pocket Adventure' travel guide series from Hunter Publishing, "Virgin Islands" by Lynn M. Sullivan covers the island destinations of St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, and the smaller islets. All of the usual guidebook information is compacted into a pocket size, user friendly reference including places to go, what to see, what to do, and where to stay. Enhanced with historical 'infobits', maps, information and advice, "Virgin Islands" is the ideal and recommended trip planner whether traveling on a budget or in luxury, on a day-trip or an extended vacation." -- Midwest Book Review

"Recommended for visitors who want to research a trip ahead of time and take the book along for repeated reference. Covers the beautiful islands in the chain, from reefs, wrecks and eco-adventures to town attractions and places to stay. An excellent guide." -- The Bookwatch

As Sullivan demonstrates, the main islands have all the amenities and indulgences one would expect in a tropical paradise, plus a breathtaking Caribbean setting and just enough foreign quirks to be intriguing." --Ingram Advance Magazine

The 60 or so islands in the US Virgin Islands offer something for every type of vacationer. As Sullivan demonstrates, the main islands have all the amenities and indulgences one would expect in a tropical paradise, plus a breathtaking Caribbean setting and just enough foreign quirks to be intriguing. --Ingram Advance Magazine

As portable as they are helpful, and heavily illustrated as well, the volumes in this series remain very reliable in making certain that adventure is a major ingredient of your visit. --Booklist

1.0 out of 5 stars Out of Date September 12, 2009
By Mary
Format:Paperback
Out of date. Not a lot of information on each of the islands. It is also a pretty bulky book for having such little info.

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened to the first four editions April 16, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I've been using Harry S. Pariser's Adventure Guide to the Virgin Islands in its previous editions, but this is not it. This is a completely new book, but one which is skimpy on background information and other features which made his such a joy to use. This book is just not the same."
