Not your shy and retiring type, the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas is vacation central for cruise passengers, holidaymakers and beach revelers. St. Thomas is all about diving and snorkeling, perfect beaches and colonial-era sightseeing in the capital, Charlotte Amalie.

Day 1: Island Meander
Get your bearings from the heights of Mountain Top, for views over beautiful Magens Bay. Or ride the aerial tramway to the top of Paradise Point for a bird’s-eye view of Charlotte Amalie and its harbor. Head into Charlotte Amalie for some duty-free shopping, and do some sightseeing at the town’s Fort Christian, churches, museums, galleries and pirates’ lookout at Blackbeard’s Tower.

Day 2: Marine World
For a packed day of marine world fun, spend some time at Coral World Ocean Park – in fact there’s so much to do at Coral World, you’ll probably need to visit twice. For the kids there’s a touch pool and different marine garden aquariums, underwater views of sharks and a stingray pool. The brave can encounter sharks and everyone will want to meet the sea lions and lorikeets.

Day 3: Beach Day
On St. Thomas you can choose the beach that suits your mood for the day. Will it be windsurfing and kayaking at Magens Bay, followed by a walk through the mangroves on the nature trail? Feel like joining in a game of beach volleyball? Head to the beach party scene of Coki Beach. If it’s a more laid-back vibe you’re seeking, spread your beach towel on the white sand of Hull Bay. Or why not add a ferry ride to the mix and sail over to perfect Honeymoon Beach on Water Island for a day of secluded beachcombing.
