    Excellent displays of pirate history and memorabilia. Go to the Paradise Point Sky Gondola place, next-door, first to buy a combo ticket. The museum offers videos and shows the demise of several ships and displays of their artifacts brought up from the sea.

    Such a beautiful historic synagogue. Tons of history both from the island community and generations that settled on St. Thomas. Beautiful sand floors designs and artifacts from settlers from other continents.

    It's worth the trip to the top. In general the island is very hilly with very few areas where the road is level. We rented a 4 cylinder car that struggled up steep hills slowing to just 10 mph. Suggest a 6 cyl. But once there is it fun to enjoy a drink from their bar and look down over 1k feet to Magens Bay. Banana Daiquiri was very good!

    Beautiful hotel with a pretty beach.
    Pros : rooms are absolutely beautiful and modern, spacious, large bathroom, has all kitchen amenities.
    You are steps from the beach, nice pool nearby, food in the restaurant sunset grille was good, easy to get a taxi around St Thomas
    Cons : Lots of mosquitos , especially at night, my Leggs were covered with bites. Be careful to sit in your front balcony. I even had a few mosquitos in the room.
    With the exception of the mosquitos I enjoyed my stay at Secret harbour. It’s on a nice beach, umbrellas and beach chairs are complimentary for all guests. They hand you many beach towels to use.

    Our visit was 1 May 2022. The steps are located in front of Blackbeard’s Castle. So we walked down and back up the steps. I did could 99 but two steps are double so they could be considered two steps. You get to see the homes in the area and all the beautiful flowers along the way.

    This is probably a bucket list item while in St. Thomas. It's an interesting drive up the mountain side to a viewing area overlooking Magens Bay. Good picture point.

    The tropical foliage is amazing. The staff are informative. This is great way to experience the outdoors at your own pace.

    Beautiful beach. No rocks or seaweed and water was very clear. Went early in the morning- hardly anyone there. Heard this was the place to snorkel with sea turtles in St Thomas. It didn’t disappoint. Saw a few turtles not too far from the shore. Really cool. Also has some pretty unique shells. Definitely recommend.

    We had been on this street years ago coming off a cruise ship. The area look much as it did then except that so many shops were closed or non existent. For the ones that were there they are friendly and welcoming. My jewelry stores. Emeralds are the big jewelry besides diamonds. T-shirt shops and other things. Its hard to come back from 2 category 5 Hurricanes in 2017 and Covid stopping the Cruise Ships. These people are resilient and it won't be long before their back. We still had a great day

    One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Go to one of the ends to avoid the crowds. Also, avoid the ship days and have a great day.

    During our trip 28 April - 3 May 2022, this site was where Carnival activities were. Did not get the opportunity to go inside but it is a huge building. Kept up pretty nice compared to some other old sites in the area.

    Our visit was 1 May 2022. The 99 steps are located in front of it. You can not get into it because of the hurricane damage from 2017. So it is closed but you can still see it. You can get some nice views from this point of different areas of island. Not much to say after that.
