    We hopped on the ferry from Crown Bay and rented a golf cart to explore the island from Rachael's Rentals. Heidi's Hilltop Hideaway was perfect for lunch, the best taco's. Spent your day relaxing on Honeymoon Beach enjoying drinks from Dinghy's Beach Bar. Bring cash for ferry and lunch. ATM available Dinghy's Beach Bar.

    This was one of the best experiences on St. Thomas. Our guide Agi was knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming and very personable. She was patient in her explanations and very good story teller. Make sure you pick up something at the gift shop.

    My spouse and I have been to most the beaches on St Thomas. This is our second favorite beach (nothing beats Magen's Bay Beach), and our favorite for snorkeling. From the cruise port, a safari bus cost $10 a person one-way, September 2022 prices. (Be aware that there are not as many buses/taxis returning as there are for Magen's Bay. You may have to call, so get a card when you are dropped off and plan your time accordingly.) Snorkeling is good in this location, particularly on the shallower left hand side of the bay. There is a nice floating dock to sit on or jump off. The open-air bar/restaurant is right on the beach. It has beautiful views, and it serves reasonably priced drinks ($5 beers and $10 frozen drinks). This is a local's hang-out beach, and they are usually happy to provide you information about the island.

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

    Great quiet beach to relax, snorkel, swim. No food or drink vendors, so make sure to bring drinks or snacks.

    My wife and I stopped by the brewery yesterday to check this place out, and boy was I impressed! The brewery is very small and a bit hard to find (I asked for directions at a bar directly below - the brewery was upstairs). Anyway, Terri (one of the owners) treated us to a private tasting of the 4 beers they had on tap. All 4 were very good, but I LOVED their new hazy pale ale that they had made using a different yeast than what they use for their normal pale ale (the supply shortage is making it harder for them to get all of the ingredients they need). Anyway, I am so glad that they brewed this “experimental “ hazy pale ale beer. I hope that they make it a permanent addition to their brews! At least I was able to buy a 32-oz. crowler of this to take back to my hotel to enjoy during the rest of my stay. Well done, Frenchtown Brewing Co.!

    The grounds are beautiful with breathtaking views all the way to the ocean and the sea. We really enjoyed the many tropical flowers and the birds as well as the many photo opportunities.

    Visit Lanai restaurant while you are there! I absolutely LOVE the food there. Amazing sunset pictures! I make it a point to go there at least 1 x each visit!

    First off, let me say that we did not see any sand on this beach. I am not sure if this was due to high tide or if storms have washed away the beach. Either way, it is very rocky. We saw a few surfers getting beat up in the waves, and three friendly local ladies enjoying the view. If you can make your way down here, it is possible you will have the whole place to yourself. It is not an easy trip, and not for everyone. Please see my review of Mermaids Chair for all the details. The best advice I can give you: do NOT miss the final 4 pm shuttle pickup at Sandy Bay Beach unless you really want to test your physical fitness. There are far more beautiful and convenient beaches on St. Thomas, but if you have a sense of adventure, this one is for you.

    Everyone at House of Rajah was SO nice! 🥰
    Harry, Vinnie & Jose never pressured any of us for a sale, which made us want to do business with them! (You should too!) We will be back!

    We had an excellent time on our 6 hour private tour, 2 people. Our captain, Jordan, was friendly,knowledgeable , entertaining, and took safety very seriously. The charter company was easy to work with. Because of an approaching tropical storm, they contacted us to move up the excursion by a day. We were very pleased with our experience and would use over the Line Boat Charters again, and we would request Captain Jordan.

    Captain Owen is fantastic - great to learn the fun facts but also to have loads of laughs. We felt like he was one of us immediately. Ran a tight shop but was also very easy going. Our trip to St John’s was even better with that boat trip included!

    Everything was awesome. The staff are very friendly and hospitable. The property is well cared for. There are clean bathrooms onsite and the gear looks well cared for. They guide you every step of the way. There’s lots of beautiful scenery throughout the canopy trail. A total of 6 lines and 2 bridges. The views are amazing. The staff make sure you are safe every step of the way. The adventure comes with some anxiety but the guides are so reassuring and encouraging that you just go for it. My husband and I are over 50 and we both did everything the younger people did and we had a lot of fun. You won’t regret this experience. Sharon and Rich were our guides. Great team work and super nice people clearly invested in their guests having a fun and safe time. Grateful to both of them for looking out for us and making it one of the best experiences we’ve had oj this trip.

    I booked a snorkel adventure as a gift to my husband on our honeymoon and this was my first experience snorkeling. Our guide Perry was very patient with me and was an amazing teacher! He made my experience very comfortable and I can now say I cannot wait to do it again! The reefs and beaches he took us to were so beautiful and he always pointed out sea life to us that we may have otherwise missed! Not only that, but he took some really amazing underwater pictures of my husband and I together while snorkeling and the sea life itself such as turtles, an octopus, starfish, etc. When the tour was over he had a lot of good recommendations for good restaurants, beaches, and other things to do while on the island. He helped to make our honeymoon memorable and we'll never forget the hospitality he gave us! Highly recommended experience!
