TRAVEL & TRANSPORTATION

BARRIER FREE TRAVEL

Everyone can experience the beauty of our islands.


The U.S. Virgin Islands believes a dream vacation should be within everyone’s reach! Regulations requiring compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) are ensuring that the USVI is leading the way in the Caribbean with accessible options.

Individuals with disabilities will find accessible lodging and attractions, tour operators and rental equipment available to provide a barrier-free travel experience. We’ve provided a list of locations that are completely compliant or have limited mobility. This list will continue to be updated, so visit this page regularly.
