St. Thomas is the most visited USVI with the largest airport, busiest cruise port, and the largest Caribbean resident population that loves to island hop. This island loves to party and Carnival is epic.
By the 1600s, Native populations plummeted, mostly due to a lack of defense against European disease.
The many beaches feature a range of crystalline white sand, palm tree shading, and rocky outcrop settings.
The island is one of the only dive destinations where you can dive a wreck and reef in one day.
Explore historical attractions, a butterfly farm, shops, and restaurants near the cruise port.
Carnival is the sound of steel drums, Johnny Cakes frying, colorful costumes, and non-stop dancing.
You should drink bottled water when available. Bring sunglasses, a hat, and biodegradable sunscreen.
