Krum Bay

Krum Bay, on St. Thomas, USVI, is an archeological site that has been studied for years. It has been found to have harbored occupants between 1000 and 200 BC, making it some of the earliest occupied lands in the Caribbean.

Through many years of study, archeologists have learned that ancient Krum Bay residents relied on marine resources for food and materials, including tools and jewelry.

Even if you aren't staying very close, you should consider stopping by to check it out.
