The smallest of the Virgin Islands, Water Island is only 491.5 acres! It’s pretty close to living on a private island. Visitors come to Water Island for the off the beaten path quiet charm. There are just a couple businesses on the island, such as beach bars, boat charters and vacation rentals. Residents depend on St. Thomas, which is just a short 7 minute ferry ride away for almost everything. For the most part, Water Island residents work on St. Thomas, and commute either on a small ferry or on their own personal boat.. Residents bring their groceries over from St. Thomas, as is the case with all other needed goods including gas for cars. Main roads are paved and residents drive cars and golf carts. Apartments for rent and real estate availability are limited. Keep in mind, there is no airport, official educational facilities, or medical clinics. However, the ferry makes commuting a breeze.
