The liveliest and most popular of the US Virgin Islands, St. Thomas has become known for its white-sand beaches (particularly Magen’s Bay), fine dining, and duty-free shopping. The capital of the Virgin Islands, Charlotte Amalie, is one of the most beautiful towns in the Caribbean, and it’s filled with historical sites. And though its Main Street is a bit crowded, it’s a “must” for serious shoppers. Unwinding is possible at the island’s beaches, restaurants, and villas, which are, for the most part, removed from the cruise-ship chaos of the capital. Guests who want action will appreciate all that St. Thomas has to offer.
