Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands: World-Famous Beaches and Duty-Free Shopping District
The most populous of the US Virgin Islands⎯and also the most visited⎯is Saint Thomas, known for offering some of the Caribbean's best water recreation. Scuba divers flock to the island's more than 30 dive sites, where networks of coral tunnels teem with parrotfish and turtles. The pristine waters are also ideal for fishing, boating, and windsurfing, but many visitors who come to Saint Thomas never leave the shore. That's because the island has miles of white-sand beaches, including heart-shaped Magens Bay, which National Geographic hailed as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.
Saint Thomas also has a well-deserved reputation as the duty-free shopping mecca of the Caribbean thanks to its capital city, Charlotte Amalie. Here, centuries-old Danish buildings house more than 400 shops selling tax-free jewelry, clothing, and imported china. You can even haggle with shopkeepers to get a lower price than what's posted. But despite the hustle and bustle, the shopping district maintains a mostly charming atmosphere thanks to its cobblestone pathways and sidewalk cafés. For locally made trinkets and artwork, head to the Native Arts & Crafts Cooperative, where nearly 90 artisans spread out over a single brick building.
Charlotte Amalie also contains many historical landmarks, including a 17th-century Danish fort as well as the Emancipation Garden, where it was announced in 1848 that all the island's slaves would be freed.
