St. Thomas is the most visited USVI with the largest airport, busiest cruise port and largest resident population that loves to island hop. This island loves to party and its Carnival is epic. That said, you can still find quiet hotels and villas with a view.

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 wall, wreck, pier 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.

Travel Tips
You should drink bottled water when available. Bring sunglasses, a hat and biodegradable sunscreen.
