St. Thomas is a part of the U.S. Virgin Islands, an unincorporated territory of the United States. My first time traveling to St. Thomas was during a port of call at the capital of St. Thomas, Charlotte Amalie, while on an Eastern Caribbean Cruise in March of 2013. I was excited about going to St. Thomas since it was my first time; however, I really didn’t have any high expectations. I am a traveler, so I started comparing islands in my head…I wondered how St. Thomas would measure up to some of the other islands that I visited. I really did not expect to see a spectacular island. Oh, I was so wrong! St. Thomas stole my heart.
St. Thomas is beyond beautiful, it is a lovely island. When I try to describe the beauty of St. Thomas, I am basically speechless, because there are no words to express the awesomeness of the island. I am the first to admit, I am not a photographer; however, the pictures that I took of St. Thomas were flawless. An amateur photographer can take the best pictures there, really, the island is so perfect, it’s almost impossible to take a terrible picture.
I love the Caribbean and I have traveled to some locations where I felt the sights were the closest to heaven that I will see here on earth, and St. Thomas fits in that category. St. Thomas is awesome, it is such a lovely island.
St. Thomas is a small, cozy island. It is of 32 square miles of awesomeness. There are so many activities such as duty-free shopping, sailing, snorkeling, sightseeing, diving and superb dining. The island also has a world-renowned golf course, beautiful beaches and a lively nightlife.
St. Thomas offers luxurious resort, bed & breakfast and villa accommodations. With the exception of the cruise ships docking at the port, the island experience is usually secluded beaches, where couples, families and singles can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. There is Magens’ Bay, which is the most popular beach in St. Thomas. Magens’ Bay is a one mile stretch public park, picturesque beach, in a heart-shaped protected bay. It is so calm and relaxing yet the sight is so vivid.
While staying in St. Thomas, you will be able to island hop to the other two islands that make up the U.S. Virgin Islands, which are St. Croix and St. John. St. John is a twenty minute ferry ride; however, you will have to take a local plane to St. Croix in as little as 17 minutes. You may also travel by ferry, which is a 90-minute, comfortable, scenic ride. Many of the major airlines has daily flights to St. Thomas, some of the large cities on the U.S. east coast offer nonstop flights to St. Thomas.
Who is ready to explore St. Thomas? I most definitely have plans to visit the island, the cruise was just a sample, I plan to stay for a couple of days. Contact My Times Travel to custom design your vacation experience. Visit www.mytimestravel.com, email email@example.com or call 1-800-659-8443
