ADD TO LISTThe island of Saint Thomas is the largest in the US Virgin Islands, and also contains its capital Charlotte Amalie. Charlotte Amalie is also the most popular cruise ship destination in the Caribbean. Over a million cruise ship passengers each year visit this town of under 20,000 for tax and duty free shopping. Aside from shopping, Saint Thomas also has the spectacular Magens Bay Beach. Consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, horseshoe-shaped Magens Bay is crowded with people looking to enjoy its sugar white sands and turquoise blue waters.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Saint Thomas
You hav to find Megan's Beach
A most when visiting St. Thomas (especially while on a cruise) is catching a ride on one of the islands bus tours! They are more accurately giant trucks that are converted to to a tram style bus. The tour takes you around the island so you can see the views and bays from beautiful little tucked away spots. It continues on to a little roadside stand where you can get an amazing little banana flavored frozen beverages:) and ends at a beautiful beach with the best snorkeling on the island. The tour leaves you there to have some fun in the sun for about 2 hours and comes back to pick you up and take you back to port. It's worth every penny and is actually cheaper than a taxi fare to Megan's Bay.
A personal favorite is Raymond's bus tours. He is a local firefighter on the island so you can't miss his bus...it's bright red and has a picture of himself fighting fires on the side:) He was friendly funny and full of information and activity ideas for the island.
