    • sandy bottom beaches?

      St. Croix Jun 24, 2016 at 12:44 PM

      got 2 kids. one like to snorkel and the other likes to just jump up and down in some surf. most beaches I have read about look very good for snorkeling. calm, somewhat rocky. but I need to have a few "go to" beaches for the little guy. I am not expecting big waves, but are there some beaches that have a little more surf and have sandy bottom? thanks.

We all were going to pack some in the luggage but if we can buy it on St. Thomas then us girls can bring more shoes (insert sarcasm here):) I was reading about Pueblows and by the pictures I can't tell what is sold in the booze section. Any help would be great?

We will spend a couple days in the "city", travel to Blackbeard's Castle, go up the tram, Magen's bay and other snorkeling places. Also, to and from the airport to Frenchman's Reef resort.

      St. Thomas Jan 7, 2015 at 12:08 PM

      I am planning a girls trip for 4, all in our mid 20's. Where should we stay to be close to fun nightlife scenes?

      Is there a big variety of bars/clubs? Would we have to travel by water to get to them? should we consider another USVI,if not?

      Our interest include relaxation, good food, shopping, water excursions, fun nightlife, general site seeing. Actually we are all up for anything!

      last question is all inclusive worth it?

      My Husband and I may be moving to STT in a few months for my husband's work. Just wondering, if anyone from the US who moved to STT, could pass along any info about adjusting from living (recently) in Myrtle Beach SC and Williamsburg VA to STT. I've been reading a lot online and thought it may be nice to start making new friends before we move! :) Thanks! I appreciate all input!

      I read that they charge per person, but here it says the price is for 1 or 2 people. I don't understand that. Are the prices listed here how much it costs for 1 person, or 2? Or is it the same?
      And how much do they charge for waiting?

    • Airfare during holidays

      St. Thomas Jul 12, 2014 at 2:59 PM

      We have a place booked between Xmas and New Years, but I waited to book the flights, because I thought they would get cheaper. They haven't, and now, not only are there less choices, but the ones we wanted are nearly $2000 per ticket from the Midwest. Does anyone know if they add more flights as we get closer to the time (and especially since the other flights have filled up), or did I miss my opportunity?
