Bluebeard still has a beach named after him, and Blackbeard has a tower. If there's any treasure still hidden on the island the chances are it won't ever be found, but you never know! It may still be worth having a look whilst you're here. There are numerous wrecks and reefs in the clear tropical waters around the island, so diving is one way to delve into the island's fascinating history. The United States bought the island, and indeed all of the US Virgin Islands to make sure they could secure a strategic advantage in the area ready for the completion of the Panama Canal.
Like the pirates who came before them, many of those servicemen who first glimpsed this beautiful island fell completely in love and have made their homes here.
