Not to be missed!

While staying at Nancy’s St Thomas Vacation Rentals, you will discover that there is more to do than you possibly have time to enjoy.  Although there are plenty of things to do right on the island of St Thomas USVI, the great thing about being on the East End of St Thomas is that you have the ability to easily get off of St Thomas to explore St John and the British Virgin Islands!  Having been to St Thomas many times, the following remain my favorite things to do.  They are not to be missed!

Visit Trunk Bay Beach on St John to relax and/or snorkel.  To get there, take the Red Hook ferry to St John and then grab a cab to Trunk Bay beach.

Take your rental jeep on the car barge (to the left of the ferry terminal) to explore the island of St. John.  Visit the remote beaches on the far east side of the island, such as Lampshur Bay.  Eat at a roadside restaurant such as Shipwreck Landing.

Rent a powerboat with a captain in Red Hook and head out to the British Virgin Island of Jost Van Dyke.  The captain will help you with the best method to clear British customs.  Visit Soggy Dollar Bar and enjoy a Painkiller #5 in White Bay.  While there, also visit Ivan’s Stress Free Bar and play bartender.  Then hop over to Great Harbor to visit the world famous Foxy’s for another Painkiller!  If you have time, get your captain to take you to The Bubbly Pool.  Make a day of Jost Van Dyke.

Back on St Thomas, enjoy an Adult Flavored milkshake at Famous Delight, previously known as Udder Delight.

Take a morning walk into Red Hook for coffee at Latte’s in Paradise

Walking from Nancy’s St Thomas Vacation Rentals into Red Hook makes for a great morning ritual.  The following trail will keep you off the main roads which are not recommended for walking.  If you are a coffee drinker, there is a great little coffee stand on the dock side of American Yacht Harbor Marina called “Lattes in Paradise”.

  • From Nancy’s St Thomas Vacation Rentals, exit the Elysian Beach Resort at the front gate.
  • Turn right and walk up the slight hill and turn right into The Ritz main gate.  Smile, nod, and say “Good Day” to the guard.
  • Walk around the left side of the main building to the back and then walk down the steps to the infinity pool and beach.
  • Take the walkway around the left side of the pool.  Stay on the walkway and it will take you along the water to the far beach.
  • Go to the far end of the beach along the walkway then walk onto the sand to exit The Ritz onto Bay Road.  Turn left on Bay Road and walk about 50-yards and cut over to the beach on the right.
  • Follow the beach until you see the walking path going up the hill between the trees.
  • Follow the walking path to the water sports shack (sailboats and windsurfing).
  • Pass the water sports shack on the beach side and take the short narrow path over to the parking lot of Latitude 18 (great food, bar, music).
  • Take the road that exits the Latitude 18 parking area, walk about 150 yards, and look for a large opening in the fence to the right.
  • Go through the hole in the fence, duck under the massive abandon termite nest, and you will be in the National Park.
  • Turn left on the park road (Vessup Lane) and follow the road until it ends at Smith Bay Road.
  • Turn right on Smith Bay Road and walk 1/4 mile into Red Hook.
  • American Yacht Harbor is on your right.  Enter at the center breezeway, walk straight back and you will find Latte’s in Paradise on the dock-side of the building.
  • Enjoy your morning beverage while sitting on the veranda overlooking the marina.
  • Backtrack to the Elysian with a spring in your step and enjoy the rest of your day.

Shopping on St. Thomas

While staying at Nancy’s St Thomas Vacation Rentals, shopping is a good activity when rain is in the forecast but regardless of when you go, shopping on St Thomas is a must.

Make sure you pause and smile to say ‘Good (Morning, Day, Afternoon)’ to salespeople before starting a conversation.  Locals are very greeting conscious and this small gesture goes a long way.

Keep in mind that there are a large number of the shops that will bargain with you.  In general you will find the bargaining to be in your favor starting a few hours before the cruise ships are scheduled to depart.

Most cruise ships ask their passengers to be back onboard no later than 5pm.  So do your best bargaining after 4pm.

The St. Thomas Market is an area of tents in Charlotte Amalie near the intersection of Fort Pladsen and the waterfront. (18’20’25.09 N – 64’55’49.3 W).  This is a great place for things like T-Shirts and island memorabilia.  The last time I was there I got 3 T-Shirts for $10.

Havensight Mall – http://havensightmall.com/  This is a series of shops near the cruise ship docks.  Just look for the cruise ships and you will find the shops.  This is a good place to shop for jewelry.  You can find the best deals in Havensight just about the time the cruise ships are about to depart.

St. Thomas is a great place to purchase jewelry.  Popular jewelry places are Cardows and Diamonds International.  There are a number of shops a block off the waterfront in the center of downtown Charlotte Amalie.  Very old buildings from back in the days of pirates.

The best place to buy booze is at Plaza Extra in Tutu.  Each person can take 6 bottles back to the states.  Rum is the best deal.
