Port Description

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands

Despite its pirate filled past, Charlotte Amalie has become an excellent vacation spot for travelers. Spend the day relaxing on the beaches, or head into the water for Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Visitors can also see the view of St. Thomas Harbor from the Skyline Drive before traveling to Mountain Top for a beautiful look at Magens Bay. For more spectacular island views, head 700 feet up to The Paradise Point via the skyride. Other activities include a brief harbor cruise, a ferry ride to Virgin Island National Park, sailing to Buck Island, snorkeling at Turtle Cove, and a trip to Coral World Marine Park. The main attraction in Charlotte Amalie, however, is shopping. This area is known as the ���duty-free shopping capital of the world,��� and visitors can find bargains on nearly anything they could want from designers like C2K, John Hardy, White Diamonds, Gucci, Maurice Lacroix, and many more. There are also deals on items such as clothing, electronics, and spirits.��
