Tropical Luxury In The US Virgin Islands
In the US Virgin Islands (USVI), St Thomas is the most cosmopolitan, yet every bit as much a Caribbean tropical paradise as its neighbouring islands. For families, couples or on holiday with friends, this diverse island of luxury, relaxation, shopping and nightlife has something for everyone.
On a yacht charter, St Thomas unveils world-class beaches, coves and diving locations. The shores looking back at you from the deck are lush green, interspersed with 5-star resorts, quaint towns and picturesque secluded beaches. Golfers can enjoy a game at the island’s world-renowned golf green, and those unafraid of heights can jump on board the Skyride and travel 700 feet above the city.
Culture and history enthusiasts are also delighted on a private yacht charter of St Thomas. On the island, they can find the Western Hemisphere’s second-oldest synagogue, St Thomas Synagogue, built back in 1833, and Fort Christian, dating back to 1680
Must-do Activities While Yacht Chartering In St Thomas
On your St Thomas yacht charter, we recommend making the most of your waterborne transport to travel the island and some of its surrounds.
Cultural, Culinary And Historical Stops
Dating back to 1680, Fort Christian is a sight you can’t really miss. On the waterfront by Charlotte Amalie Pier, this imposing structure is an early settlement on the island. Its red facade contrasts beautifully with the deep green shrubs and trees surrounding it.
A few streets back from Fort Christian is another iconic structure, the St. Thomas Synagogue, the second oldest in the Western Hemisphere. The childhood home of one of the best-known French Impressionists, Camille Pissarro, is also in this area.
Over now, to the east, is the Caribbean Fish Market overlooking Cowpet Bay and St James Marine Reserve. Sample a fine dining feast of seafood fresh from the water. Sip cocktails and take in the tranquil view.
Iggies Beach Bar and Grill in the south is a venue with an upbeat atmosphere for delicious bites, live entertainment and parties that go on into the evening.
Must Visit Neighbours
A yacht charter to St Thomas has to include a stopover at the neighbouring island, St John. Peaceful white-sand beaches cover the coastline, and the interior is made up of national parks and stunning native flora and fauna.
One of the fun highlights of St John is a stop at the floating taco bar, Lime Out, for a novel experience rewarded with mouthwatering morsels.
When you go to visit the Synagogue, Fort Christian and the old home of Camille Pissarro, be sure to stop at the harbour and browse the many high-end and artisan boutiques for tax-free shopping heaven
Unique Nature Experiences
The SkyRide to Paradise Point is one of the most popular bucket items for those taking a yacht charter to St Thomas.
Riding up 700 feet high, this gondola ride takes you from the port of St Thomas to Paradise Point, where you can look out at the island’s best view of the harbour. Up here, there is an observation deck where you can enjoy a cocktail and soak up the scenery.
Over on the east side, the Coral World Ocean Park is an incredible day, whether you’re a couple or a family. Watch dolphins play nearby, check out the underwater observatory and get up close with aquatic life in the touch pool.
