 Date of review: Mar 15, 2011

Took a local cab ride to the top for $8 per person. Our cab guy was so nice he said go have a drink and I will wait for you. We spent about 1/2 hour there. Shopping is the best wish I had known and wouldnt have bought the $10 tshirts at the flea market in town. Really good prices for quality items. Lots of local type souvenirs for good prices. Daquiri was $5 for a dixie cup and had good amount of Cruzer's Rum. The view is to die for. You can see the whole bay and a good view of Magens Bay. It is cooler up there. This was a to do for our day at St Thomas. Then we took the cab to Magens Beach for another $8 per person.

We took our Garmin GPS to the USVI since we rented a car and it fit perfectly in my purse for the plane ride over! We saw so many great things using our GPs and one of those is the world famous mountain top! It was quite an adventure getting up there in our little 4 cylinder rental car :o) The banana daiquiri is quite good and don't be shocked by the price, I promise one of those suckers is enough! lol We loved reading the informative sign and pointing out all the different islands visible from this location as well as Magen's Bay. I've attached a couple of pictures, but since it's so high and it was a cloudy day, it's hard to really understand how amazing it is to be up there. I recommend it to anyone especially if you have a rental car and don't have to pay for the sky ride!!

99 Steps

Step streets used by the residents of Charlotte Amalie, these historical 99 steps (the actual count is 103) were built from the ballast bricks of the tall ships coming from the old world, which would then return to Europe loaded with products from the islands.

Top 10 Beaches:

Magens Beach:  Number One Beach in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands 5 Minutes Away from Our Vacation Villas

Hailed as one of the world's most beautiful, this breathtaking bay along St. Thomas' rugged north coast is ideal for swimming and snorkeling with all the conveniences of parking, lifeguards, equipment rental, freshwater showers, restaurants and bars.

Coki Point Beach:
Nice Beach with good snokeling and see and observe alot of fishing.  Great all in one beach. If your looking for a great all in 1 beach this is it! Was very easy to get to and parking was a breeze. Locals were very friendly and helpful. This beach is gorgeous! The locals have music in the background and will get you anything you need as far as drinks, seats, umbrellas. Snorkeling is unbelievable!  Coral World is located there to observe Marine Life in the Caribbean Seas.
Coral World Park

The Coral World park itself was small but nice to visit but the swimming experience with the Sea Lions is incredible and we had so much fun. The staff were very knowledgeable and it is evident that all the animals are well cared for.

Date of review: Nov 7, 2010

We booked a Snuba tour with our CruiseShip. Included in the tour was access to Coral World. It's a great place. Lots to see (turtles, stingrays, sharks). Note that this isn't an aquarium. There's not that many fish on display, but what's there is interesting and a great way to see in a more intimate setting. While we were their, we could feed the stingrays, saw the feeding of the turtles and people playing in the shark pool. There was also the opportunity to do Snuba or a helmet dive in Coki Bay (beautiful place). Snuba (scuba diving without the tank. The tank floats above you so you only have the airhose) is terrific. We have no interest in becoming certified for scuba diving since we won't do it very often, so this is a great way to get that experience without all of the hassle. We thought it was absolutely amazing. Great coral, some big fishes that follow you around, etc. While we were there, other people were doing the helmet dive and I wouldn't recommend it. They basically walked on the sea floor in a circle and didn't get to see very much.

Ocean Park was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation to St. Thomas! Specifically the ocean trek activity is a must-do...no swimming or diving experience necessary! There are just a handful of places in the world that let you walk on the natural ocean floor, all under the watchful eyes of experts who let you make the most of the experience however you want! The price is more than fair, even when you include pictures and video. This staff is friendly and accomodating...just like the rest of the island.
Did I mention the water is always a balmy 80 some degrees?
