I’m dying for another vacation to St. Thomas! And who could blame me? The island is absolutely gorgeous! If you are planning a trip to St.Thomas (I am insanely jealous, if so…) here are 8 of my favorite St. Thomas things to do! If you’ve been to St.Thomas, comment below and tell me how your trip was!
One of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, Magens Bay is open all year round. The bay isn’t great for snorkeling, but the calm waters make it the perfect place for swimming. There are beach chairs and umbrellas available for rent from the souvineers stand!
Take the kids here for a history lesson, and well, because the name is cool! Known as the “Williamsburg of the Caribbean” guests are able to “time travel” back to the 1600s when visiting. Guests can tour the sprawling grounds on their own, or receive a guided tour. Either way, you’re sure to come away learning a history fact or two!
Coral World Ocean Park
Spread out over 5 acres of wildlife, guests can immerse themselves in the ocean habitat. There’s an undersea observatory, tons of hiking trails, marine pools, and even a butterfly garden! Guests can even feed stingrays or pet a shark!
Built in the 1600s, Fort Christian was built to be the defense fort in the area. Now, it doesn’t function so much as a fort, but boasts one of the islands largest museums! Find pieces of art, and historical local artifacts. You’d be surprised to learn what a rich history St. Thomas has!
Head to Lindquist beach for one of the most picturesque picnics that you’ll ever experience. Known for it’s crystal clear waters and clean sandy beaches, families of all sizes will find something fun to do here. Don’t forget to check out the nearby coconut groves. Seeing a real coconut tree was one of my favorite parts about my trip!
Aqua Marine Dive Center
One of the only SSI certified dive centers in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Aqua Marine Dive Center comes highly regarded by locals AND by Trip Advisor. You’ll feel safe and taken care of when diving with this underwater adventure group. Go snorkeling, or scuba diving!
Bluebird’s Bay is located in an isolated bay, making it kind of a drive to get here, but so worth it once you do! Because the beach is so isolated, you probably aren’t going to see many other beach goers. However, it isn’t THAT isolated. Tourists can enjoy a small section of shops and restaurants behind the beach, parallel to the water. This is the place to go if you love to go kiteboarding!
Once connected to the main island via penninsula, Hassel Island was separated from the main island to improve water circulation. The small island is only 135 acres of land, but is full of rich and vibrant history. Take a look at the historical Crepe Marine railway and the Garrison House!
