When you imagine yourself truly relaxing—breathing deeply, soothing your senses, and leaving the weight of your workaday life behind—where are you? If you see yourself surrounded by gentle turquoise tides, miles of golden sand, and the aromatic scent of smoky jerk chicken, then it’s time to bring your daydreams to life on a fabulous vacation in St. Thomas, an island in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Soon, you’ll be soaking up the sun in Magens Bay, windsurfing across the sparking water at Sapphire Beach, or sipping rum as the sun sets over the Caribbean, like rose gold melting into the sea. Book St. Thomas package deals and start your excursion with a flourish of savings.
Take heart, traveler. Your St. Thomas vacation will be exactly what you wish it to be, especially if you’re wish is lying on several brilliant beaches beneath the shade of palm trees and awash in the sweetness of a cold cocktail at a Tiki bar. On the north side of St. Thomas, expansive Magens Bay is not only gorgeous and calm—perfect for swimming—it’s also laden with kid-friendly eateries, open-air shopping, and picnic tables, making it a perfect place to spend a family vacation in St. Thomas. If you’re looking for a splash of seclusion, Honeymoon Beach on tiny Water Island will fit the bill, and you can set your inner adventurer free with snorkeling gear or a windsurfing board at Sapphire Beach on the northeast coast.
When you’re ready to air dry in the warm breeze and explore the local history and culture, make your way to Charlotte Amalie, the capital port, located near the center of the south coast. Visit Skytsborg Tower, known by locals as Blackbeard’s Castle, built of stone in 1679. From the observation deck, look out over this ancient and luxurious city, from the art boutiques and fruit vendors of Main Street to the winged creatures at The Butterfly Garden.
It’s always a perfect time to take a trip to St. Thomas, especially because annual events grace the calendar each month and the temperate weather makes it easy to step out and celebrate. Escape January’s chilly weather to fill your life with island treasures at St. Thomas Synagogue’s Annual Antiques, Art & Collectibles Auction. In April, the streets become even more colorful—if that’s possible—for the celebration of Carnival, a nonstop month of calypso shows, parades, and lots and lots of delicious Caribbean cuisine.
