Island Resort

The Caribbean paradise of St Thomas offers something for just about everyone. It offers some of the Caribbean’s best beaches and spectacular nightlife activities. St Thomas is a cosmopolitan island yet it still retains the distinctive atmosphere of a secluded Caribbean paradise.

St. Thomas is only 32 square miles in size but has a million miles worth of things to do. Go shopping and sailing, snorkeling and sightseeing, or diving and dining. The Audobon Society-sponsored bird-watching tours are wonderful. St. Thomas is also one of the world’s premier sportfishing destinations. The island has a world-renowned golf course too.

Take the Skyride 700 feet above the city or climb the famous 99 Steps of Charlotte Amalie for an incomparable view of the Caribbean. The St. Thomas Skyride carries 24 passengers every seven minutes along its 8-tower ascent of Flag Hill and some of the most dramatic views of the Caribbean beaches of St. Thomas. Once at the pinnacle, guests can enjoy shopping and dining, watch a bird show, hike a nature trail or hop on the Sky Jump trampoline.

If you’re interested in culture and history, don’t miss seeing the second-oldest synagogue in the Western Hemisphere, the 1680-built Fort Christian or the childhood home of Camille Pissarro, one of the best-known French Impressionists.

Finding delicious food is easy in and around Charlotte Amalie. The capital city of the U.S. Virgin Islands has countless dining options, from chef-prepared haute cuisine to more modest and traditional island fare.

Famous for its lively nightlife, St. Thomas has plenty of popular places for all the singing and dancing you could ever want. Nighttime activities revolve around the major resorts, but you’ll also find many smaller venues with open mic nights and DJs spinning until dawn.

Each year St. Thomas hosts a variety of world-class sporting events, from glamorous regattas to highly competitive tennis, basketball and sport fishing tournaments.

Coral World Ocean Park is one of St. Thomas’ greatest attractions. Park goers can swim with sea lions, sea trek along the ocean floor, encounter turtles, sharks, sting rays, feed the lorikeets, scuba, power snorkel, and more. Other highlights include the Undersea Observatory Tower built 30 feet underwater and the Marine Gardens gallery of 21 aquariums.

The two top sailing catamarans on St Thomas, Daydreamer & Coconut, offer comfort and stability while sailing through pristine waters around the US and British Virgin Islands. Discover the beauty of the waters while being pampered by professional crew members. All trips include snorkel gear and open bar.

Red Hook is a quaint center of activity overlooking Pillsbury Sound and the island of St. John. Located just 2 miles from the Sugar Bay beach resort, Red Hook is more relaxed than other tourist destinations. It’s perfect for a USVI family vacation with the benefit of an array of boating, water sports activities, dining and nightlife.

Kayak, hike and snorkel the picturesque Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary & Marine Preserve. Explore a deserted island, mangrove forests and snorkel clear protected waters along the beautiful beaches.

The St. Thomas Greathouse and Botanical Gardens is nestled high in the volcanic peaks overlooking the beaches of St. Thomas. It was originally part of the 150-acre Plantation St. Peter but now displays examples of West Indian architecture and furniture. The lush Botanical Gardens and nature trail feature streaming waterfalls, tropical bird aviaries, fish ponds and has more than 20 varieties of orchids and 150 species of Caribbean plants and fruits.
