About Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands and Places to Visit
St. Thomas is one of the most famous and densely populated islands in the US Virgin Islands archipelago, with about 50,000 residents. Its capital is Charlotte Amelie, also the capital of the Lesser Antilles, an amazing city with many shops, where it is pleasant to stroll in the evening when shops close in the narrow streets.
The island is simply stunning, with spectacular views from one hill to another, to the crystal clear sea. Even from a historical and cultural point of view, a visit to the island is exciting, considering that only in the capital’s area visitors can admire: Strasbourg, Blackbeard’s Castle, one of the oldest towers in the Caribbean, which has recently been restored and converted into a hotel; 99 Steps, an amazing staircase that was built at the beginning of the eighteenth century; Hotel 1829, one of the most beautiful old residences in the center of the capital, equipped with an unusual courtyard of the nineteenth century; Fort Christian, the famous fortress, completed in 1678 and now houses a museum; and many other attractions.
After enjoying the main cultural attractions, you can devote yourself entirely to relaxing on the magnificent beaches of St. Thomas. Choosing a place to spend the day in the shade of palm trees and lulled by the gentle sound of the waves can be daunting given the abundance and diversity of the offer. The most famous and most beautiful tourist beaches of Saint Thomas are: Bluebeard Beach, located on the east side and especially popular with windsurfers; Bolongo Bay, where you can admire some of the most beautiful underwater landscapes on the island; Brewer’s Bay, one of the most beautiful stretches of the west coast of St. Thomas; Coki Beach, northeast of the island, whose calm waters invite you to dive and snorkel; Hull Bay, a wild beach frequented by fishermen and surfers; and Sapphire Beach, equipped with all the most important tourist services.
The island is home to the main airport of the Virgin Islands, Cyril E. King, less than 3 km from downtown Charlotte Amalie, to which you can comfortably get to by renting a private jet to St. Thomas.
