Now, since St. Thomas is an island, there are plenty of places to go snorkeling and what not, but Sapphire Beach is hands down the best spot on the island for underwater sea life. No matter when you go down to the beach, there is always something to see. I have been to Sapphire Beach a lot in my life, but one of my best experiences was one day last year. I swam out and within seconds, came across a herd of turtles. Since the sea floor is covered in grassy fields, this area is a heaven for turtles. These turtles, which are mainly focused on feeding and nothing else, are very willing to allow you to come rather close and touch them.

On St. Thomas, there are m...Read More
