Overview

St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix and Water Island (new a few years ago) are the four main islands that make up the United States Virgin Islands. There a also many other smaller islands and a lot of cays dotting the ocean. We are situated mostly in the Caribbean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean to the north. St. Thomas is 32 square miles with approximately 55,000 people and is the busiest and liveliest of the islands. Although, when compared to life in the states the lifestyle is very slow-paced and layed back. It is also very beautiful with the crystal aqua ocean and incredible views of other islands in the distance. If you love the beach and ocean and want to relax...Come to St. Thomas!!! Qui...Read More

Restaurant

Quote:
Duffy's is defiantly fun and worth a visit, although it is a little bit cheesy. I suppose that's what make it fun, though. Food is fairly cheap and actually really good. I usually get the Polynesian Pu-Pu platter that comes flaming with an assortment of meats and fruits on skewers. The wings are yummy too. Although just about everything on the menu is great, the main attraction is the tropical and party atmosphere and the crazy drinks and glasses. There is actually a menu of frozen drinks that come in all sorts of cheesy ceramic and plastic mugs that you get to keep...some even light up and they taste pretty good. If you are really daring order the mother of all drinks...The Volcano which you s...Read More

Attraction | "Nauti Nymph Power Boat Rentals"

Whenever a visitor is in town, I make a power boat rental a priority during their stay! It is by far one of the best and one of my favorite activities to do here. You can pick the boat up in the morning at 8:00 and explore most of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands along with all of the numerous cays until 5:00 in the evening. You can design your own personal itinerary for the day or just wing-it along the way! I have done this about 10 times now and I always like going to Jost Van Dyke first to visit either Foxy's Bar or Ivan's Stress-Free Bar in Great Bay or the Soggy Dollar Bar in White Bay. Then, I usually go over to uninhabited Sandy Cay for the beach and snorkeling before heading to The In...Read More

Linquist Beach

Attraction

Linquist Beach Photo, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
Quote:
This is by far my favorite beach on the island. It is one of the last few remaining deserted sandy beaches and is serene and beautiful. All beaches are public to anyone by law, but quite a few are built up with resorts and frequented by the tourists staying there. Linquist is a local beach off the beaten path where it is rare you will find any tourists. The sandy beach is curved in a large c-shape that is lined by coconut palms and forms a large bay in the middle. There is an excellent view of Thatch Cay followed by all of the other cays (Grass, Mingo, Lovango...)and St. John in the distance. There is good shallow water snorkeling on the left side of the beach as well as the righ...Read More

If you SCUBA dive, this is BY FAR the best dive operator on St. Thomas (and St. John). They offer half-day two tank dives and afternoon one and two-tank dives. They also offer weekly night dives with a full moon dive once a month and a weekly full day trip to the RMS Rhone (the best wreck dive around). There are a whole range of dive sites. My favorites are definitely "Arches and Tunnels" and the RMS Rhone. The Rhone is a world class dive of a Royal Mail Steamer that was taken down by a hurricane in 1867 while transporting cargo and passengers back to Britian. It is not worth missing if you are an avid diver. The boat "Fool's Gold" is in excellent condition, the group sizes are ke...Read More

Warehouse Bar

Attraction | "The Warehouse - Poor Man's Bar"

Warehouse Bar Photo, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
Quote:
Very casual and laid back island bar although it is rarely ever boring there. It always seems like there is some sort of action going on or maybe it's just the drinks....All liquor drinks are pour-your-own! So if you order a drink the bartender gives you a cup with ice and puts a big bottle of your liquor(s) preference on the bar along with whatever mixer you chose. You then can pour-your-own glass. It's interesting to watch some of the regulars. Anything is a straight $3.50 unless you order a Cruzian Rum drink which is $2.50 since it is brewed on St. Croix and therefore extremely cheap. Unfortunately I don't ever take advantage of this great deal because I am more a beer drinker, but beers are ...Read More
