I have lived in Charlotte Amalie the last several years. I used to live in Seattle but have found island life to be more relaxing. St Thomas is the most populated of all the 4 US Virgin Islands. There is also St Croix and St John and now what is referred to as the fourth Virgin Island...Water Island.
St Thomas features DOWNTOWN which is Charlotte Amalie and then a small hamlet in the East called RED HOOK. To the NORTH is lush jungle and tropical vegetation and I recommend if you want to se the local scene, try HULL BAY in addition to the popular tourist beach MEGANS BAY. MEGAN'S was voted one of the most 10 beautiful beaches in the world by National Geographic and I have to say, it is nice, but some of the beaches in St John and especially Coki Beach on the East end of st Thomas, rival it's beauty in my opinion.
Cab drivers are plentiful and sometimes we locals swat them out of the way as we would a mosquito. You really don't have to worry about getting transportation around here, the cabs are everywhere. Duty free shopping is available on "backstreet" (also referred to as "main street") and is just one block up from the downtown waterfront. RED HOOK is home to the major resorts and (in my opinion) where most of the best beaches are located. Downtown is where you find the most expensive shops and the bulk of the tourists. Get over to Northside or East End for the real feel St Thomas.
- Pros:Great place to visit! Come one down!
- In a nutshell:It's prettier then Hawaii in my opinion and more unspoiled then most tropical destinations.
This place was once an old sugar mill up on the hill just minutes away from downtown. It's tough for a person probably... more travel advice
It's a real life submarine where you can go deeper then a diver and see all kinds of fish and marine life. Air... more travel advice
