Dive Into St. Thomas

In St. Thomas, you'll find the very best in shopping, beaches, watersports and even a world-renowned golf course. Plus, there’s a host of delicious restaurants and lively nightlife options for every different price range. If you want to slow down a bit, head further inland, away from the busy cruise-ship docks and bustling activity. There you’ll find quaint historical sites rich with pirate history as well as nature parks and opportunities to sail, snorkel, hike and more. St. Thomas makes for a great all-in-one vacation destination. It’s all here – you just have to get here!

St. Thomas Overview

    Arrr, Matey at Blackbeard's Castle

    If you find yourself occasionally talking in pirate-speak, it’s time to head to Blackbeard's Castle. Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by life-sized statues of pirates located around the garden area. Head up the tower located at the top of Government Hill, and from there you can see some pretty amazing views of the harbor at Charlotte Amalie. This is the only unmodified 17th century fortified tower in the entire Caribbean, so you know you're getting the real deal here! Make sure to bring a camera along so you don't miss a thing.

    Stroll Through Charlotte Amalie

    Take a walk through the vendor-lined streets of capital city Charlotte Amalie, and you’ll see exactly why some people call St. Thomas the duty-free shopping capital of the world. Browse through over 400 shops along the main street filled with trinkets, jewelry, rum, duty-free smokes and more. You can even find great deals and discounts on leather, electronics and designer clothes. This harbor also has some gorgeous European-style buildings that you can photograph. You'll love this bargain-shoppers’ bazaar and be able to do all your souvenir shopping at once.

    Bright Bugs at the Butterfly Garden

    Enter a lush tropical garden for an unforgettable experience frolicking with exotic butterflies from all over the world. Visit the garden in the morning and you might be lucky enough to see a new butterfly emerge from its cocoon and take its first flight. However, if you’re hoping for some great photos, come later in the day because the butterflies will tend to be less active and better photography subjects. If you decide to go, make sure to wear bright colors and perfumed lotion if you have them because they'll attract these lovely creatures right to you!

    Mountains and More at Magen's Bay

    If you can’t choose between the mountains or the sea, you can have them both at Magen’s Bay. At Magen's Bay, you'll see breathtaking mountains roll right into the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. No wonder National Geographic named this beach one of the world’s 10 most beautiful beaches! The waters here are so clear that we consider this the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming. Watersports like kayaking are available, too. However, if you’d rather just lie in the powdery white-sand and work on your tan all day, we completely understand.

    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.

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!
