The center of all transportation in the US Virgin Islands, almost everyone who visits these isles will spend at least a short amount of time on St. Thomas.  Whether you'll be there for a few hours or you have the good fortune to enjoy an extended stay, there are ways to make the most of your time.  Tour the Charlotte Amalie waterfront where the Danish colonial buildings are a great introduction into island history, and Fort Christian stands at the ready though it has not been used in many, many years.  Meanwhile, Red Hook is a bustling ferry port which is known for its red-tiled roofs and endless shopping and dining opportunities.  Amidst it all there are beaches, museums, historic landmarks, and natural sites all waiting to be explored.


Honeymoon Beach

There are several beaches to consider visiting on the island. Regardless of whether you're looking forward to people watching, or you prefer a more secluded spot, you should be able to find just the right beach.

A beach where you can go snorkeling is Honeymoon Beach. Located on Water Island off the coast of St. Thomas, Honeymoon Beach is an excellent spot for guests of all ages, whether they prefer swimming or simply sunbathing on the shore. Dramatically improved in the 1950s by the leaseholder, the area is decorated with palm trees and immaculate sand.

Another top pick for those who enjoy snorkeling is Morning Star Beach. Morningstar Beach lures guests to its shores with pretty white beaches and exciting entertainment. You'll find plenty of development along these shores, as resorts are a beachfront mainstay.

Hull Bay: Access to the beach is limited to vehicles and pedestrians. Cars can utilize a informal car park area directly before the beachfront off of a local road which connects to Route 37.
