St. Thomas Vacations
The beaches of St. Thomas offer a wonderful combination of white sand and clear turquoise waters. Magens Bay is one of the most beautiful destinations, and Honeymoon Bay is known for its calm waters and excellent snorkeling. For a more secluded experience, consider Lindquist Beach.
Many of those with St. Thomas vacation packages include sport fishing in their experience. Arrange for a deep sea charter, and there's good chance that you'll battle tuna, mahi mahi, barracuda, or even a marlin during the day. Consider an ecotour that includes kayaking in a mangrove lagoon. Guides help those new to snorkeling until they are comfortable enough to gaze upon the endless species of fish swimming about in the clear waters.
Book a St Thomas car rental, and visit great examples of the history and culture of the island, like Fort Christian, the oldest structure and home of the Virgin Islands Museum. Government Hill overlooks the capital of Charlotte Amalie, and it features a dramatic 17th century fortified tower known as Blackbeard's Castle.
Recurring Festivals and Events
The largest event on the island is VI Carnival, a three-week extravaganza staged every April. Each year, the carnival committee selects a different theme for the event. The grand finale features a children's parade and an adult parade. The colorful, beaded costumes that dazzle visitors reflect the enormous effort that everyone puts into this dynamic festival.
