    St. John is a very easy place to get around without your own car, though you might consider a rental for a day or two to explore on your own. Otherwise, hop one of the many taxis that ply the island, an easy and fun way to get around, not to mention meet some of the locals. There are a few limited bus services, plus plenty of hiking trails through 7,000-acre Virgin Islands National Park (http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_park/vi_virgi.htm), which covers almost half of the island.

    Antigua's Hawksbill Bay includes a stretch that's the island's only nude beach. Public nudity is illegal in the U.S. Virgin Islands, although apparently the beach at Soloman Bay on St. John sees its share of risk-takers (or should that be, risk-taker-off-ers?!). Little Magens on St. Thomas is apparently another little-known local nude spot. Public nudity is a no-no on the Cayman Islands. Generally, when it comes to nudity, you'll see more relaxed attitudes to baring it all on European-influenced islands like those in the French West Indies or Guadeloupe. Other islands including Jamaica and the Dominican Republic have clothing-optional and nudist resorts, where you can wear as little as you want on private property. Obviously, just be respectful of local customs and laws, as some Caribbean countries can be quite conservative towards such things. Be a good ambassador for yours!

    There are a few horseback-riding outfitters who offer trail rides through St. John's mountainous interior and along the beach. Try somewhere like The Carolina Corral (call 340-693-5778). St. Croix also has a well-regarded stable called Paul & Jill's Equestrian Stables.
