St Thomas US Virgin Islands

This laid back island is bigger than St John but has similar beautiful beaches, a dutch history and tropical forests leading to exquisite vistas and calm beaches. The main attractions were: Drake's seat, Maggens Bay, Lyndquist beach and the banana Daiquiries at Mountain Top (Banana Daiquiries were "invented" on st Thomas by pirates/ sea farers it is claimed)

Lindquist Beach

we enjoyed a few hours at Lyndquist beach which is somewhat similar to Trunk Bay but sparsely crowded.

Again characteristic Caribbean white sand and blue beaches; this can never get tiring!

Maggens Bay

The bay itself is very calm and has greenish water unlike the turquoise bright colors of Trunk Bay. The water here is very calm and views stunning with palm trees lines up along the beach. Sand is super fine too.

Towards the lunch time, cruise crowds starting trickling in.

Drakes Seat

Drake's seat was a short ride from our hotel and has expansive vistas of the Maggens Bay. The lush hills dotted with evergreen forests and the greenish blue maggens bay are a joy to watch.

Driving up the mountain we finally reached Mountain Top restaurant and store which served delicious Bana Daiquires(we had the virgin version)

Tropical garden-Phanatasea

Maintained by an enthusiast old couple, it is a good spot to spend a few hours inside a lush jungle with variety of tropical trees from all over the world.

The Mafolie Hotel St Thomas

We stayed at the boutique Mafolie Hotel in a suite with stunning views of the Charlotte Amalie area which is the heart of the island. The Charlotte Amalie area has dutch heritage with classic building lined up along the beach.
