From the moment you enter the beachfront Elysian Beach Resort on Cowpet Bay Beach you will begin to relax as you discover that most all of your Virgin Islands vacation needs can be satisfied just minutes from the door of your St Thomas Vacation Rental, many right on the premises of the Elysian Beach Resort.
On Cowpet Bay Beach you will find the Elysian Beach Resort excursion and water sports concession stand which offers a variety of water toys for rent. Toys such as paddle boats, single and double kayaks, windsurfers, float-mats, and snorkeling gear are generally available. Virgin Island excursions include scuba diving, island hopping, dolphin tours, para-sailing, and much more.
Cowpet Bay is also home to the St Thomas Yacht Club from which you can sail to any of the other Virgin Islands. The proximity to the Yacht Club will allow you to enjoy the weekend sailboat races as you sit on the beach and soak up the sun.
On a clear day you can see St Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, which lies 30-miles due South of St Thomas.
Two restaurants are located on the beach; Sangrias, which is a fabulous lunch spot (the fish tacos are awesome), and the upscale Caribbean Fish Market where you can enjoy a relaxing and elegant dinner. Both beach restaurants have great food and great views!
From the beach you have easy access to the Pool Bar.
For my guests at Nancy’s St Thomas Vacation Rentals, beach towels are complimentary and available daily at the front desk of the Elysian Beach Resort. You can drop off your used towels in the hotel lobby and pick up fresh towels each day.
If you are lucky, you may also get to enjoy some of our local iguanas enjoying the pool! They love maraschino cherries but if you get too close, they will whip-snap their tail at you!
