I am taking my first solo trip to St Thomas! I will be staying at the Starz Hotel next week for 7 days, which is about an 8 minute drive from the airport. I have a car rented for the entire duration of my stay which will be my primary transportation. I wanted to run my plans by you all and receive any feedback, recommendations, or advice. Anything helps!
For the 1st Day, the 20th, I am hoping to settle in, then immediately hit a beach. I understand some of the nice ones are Coki, Sapphire, Lindquist, Secret Harbour, Megan's Bay etc. I don't have a specific one determined, but it will likely be one or a combination of those.
Day 2 & 3: Likely explore the afore mentioned beaches. My hope is that I can just drive right to them, park, and then go swim & snorkel.
Day 4: Hopefully a full day at St John. I will drive to Red Hook, leave my rental and ferry over, where I will then walk around by foot, swim at the beaches, and take a taxi/Uber when needed. I hear there is also an option to ferry my rental across. Is that feasible? More expensive? Necessary?
Day 5 & 6: I am looking to find some time for horseback riding at Golden Age Ranch. I also hope to drive/walk around Frenchtown. Any spare time these days will be used to head back to a beach, do some additional snorkeling, or sightsee from some heights.
Day 7: Heading back to the airport and going home.
How does this sound? Thank you all for your help.Edited: May 17, 2021, 8:47 am
