Mountain Top Tours

Mountain Top
Perched on a set of cliffs overlooking Caribbean waters, Mountain Top is considered the oldest and tallest attraction on the island. With an elevation of 2,100 feet above sea level, it provides visitors with some of the best views on St Thomas. More than 20 neighboring islands can be seen from the top.

The views from Mountain Top are so renowned that National Geographic Magazine hails the spot as one of the Top 10 Scenic Views in the world. The site wasn't always accessible, however; it was occupied by the United States during the 1940s as a strategic communications location called Signal Hill.

Today, the site is also considered a shopping mecca and known as the birthplace of the banana daiquiri. 

Even so, it's a toss-up as to whether visitors like the site's views or shopping better. A shopping mecca, this is where people come to check out a range of unique souvenirs and handicrafts. Shops selling everything from T-shirts to Cruzan Rum are at Mountain Top, along with international brands like Tommy Bahama, Reef, Guy Harveyand Panama Jack. 

If you are a fan of banana daiquiris, Mountain Top is the place to be. As the self-proclaimed birthplace of the beloved tropical drink, Mountain Top legend has it that in 1953, a British sea captain by the name of George Coule was sailing from his native Barbados in search of the perfect Caribbean cocktail. He tried Guava Gimlets in Guadeloupe, Soursop Sodas in Saba and Mango Margaritas in Martinique, but when he arrived on the highest mountain in St Thomas, he found the banana daiquiri.

Practical Info

Mountain Top is one of the prime duty-free shopping areas in St Thomas. It can be found near another of the island's best attractions, the St Peter Greathouse and Botanical Gardens.
