Iguana Welcome Committee

Just off the ship as you walk towards the ground transportation, there are many, many big iguanas on the rocks of the beach. Very cool!

Magens Bay

When we first got to Magens Bay, we were almost the only ones there. By lunchtime it was like Venice Beach. Get there early! Also, be prepared to pay at least $8-10 per person to get there and then the same amount to get back or to the shopping area. Another $5 back to the ship. Lots of $$$ if you have a large party.

Crowded island

The only areas (Magen's Bay, shopping area) we were able to see in the time that we had were very crowded and did not live up to our expectations of the Virgin Islands. It was nice but maybe better 20 to 30 years ago. Lots of building and construction. Almost like Honolulu. I guess you can say that about most any of these tourist areas but this port felt just way too much like a tourist trap.
