St Thomas Travel Tips

Lounge with a Lorikeet at Coral World

Okay, you're probably wondering what exactly is a lorikeet? Well, we'll just tell you that it’s a tiny, friendly tropical bird that you simply cannot afford to miss.


At Coral World, you get to do more than just watch lorikeets inside their cages. Instead, you get a cup of nectar and are actually allowed to walk right into their open-air habitat.


Don't be afraid - the lorikeets are very friendly and will land on your arms and beg for treats! It's a great place for the kids, but even if you don't have kids, you'll still enjoy these cute creatures.

Catch a Wave at Hull Bay

Grab your surf board and head for the waters at Hull Bay. The surf's up here, and you don't want to miss your chance to hang ten!


As you can probably tell already, Hull Bay's a hot spot for surfing. Why? Mostly because the Atlantic Ocean whips up fantastic waves right off the beach, making it one of the best, little-known surfing spots around.


But what's even better about Hull Bay is the fact that it's a secluded beach too.


This off-the-beaten path spot doesn’t attract huge crowds, so you can do plenty of solo snorkeling and beach-hammock swinging too. 

Party with the Locals at Iggies Beach Bar & Grill

Iggies Beach Bar & Grill is where locals and visitors meet to let loose and party hard on the dance floor.


If you’re in the market for a place where you can listen to some great music, sing some karaoke, spend the entire night dancing, or find some great sports TVs, then you can stop looking now.


To put it simply, Iggies is basically an all-out beach party that's happening all the time. If that's your scene, then this 20-year-old island favorite is a must.

Ditch Your Diet at Banana Tree Grille

You’re on vacation, so you ought to indulge a little.


Although this is an award-winning surf-and-turf restaurant, you’ll want to head here for the desserts.


We highly recommend the mouthwatering key lime pie. If you don't really like key lime, then you can't refuse the rich chocolate Godiva brownies, fluffy ice cream crepes, or melt-in-your-mouth tiramisu.


The desserts here are absolutely divine, but the steak and seafood are pretty great too!


The Banana Tree Grille will ease any hunger pangs you may be having during your stay in this island paradise.

Score Duty-Free Smokes and Rum

“In-the-know” tourists and locals like to keep this baby a secret. But, we'll let you in on it: the Pueblo Supermarket is the best place to go to get the best bang for your buck on duty-free cigarettes and rum.


To find it, just head to the intersection where Havensight turns into Yacht Haven Grande.


Once you arrive, you’ll find amazing bargains on cartons of duty-free cigarettes and Virgin Island rum. You won't find a better deal anywhere else on the island.


Just make sure to stock up for your trip home!
