Consider this: You’ve just booked your anniversary getaway or tropical vacation and have chosen to travel to the US Virgin Islands and stay at At Home In The Tropics for the next 5 days. If you’ve never stayed at on St Thomas and are looking for some recommendations for ultimate relaxation, we can help you have the most enjoyable stay and experience.
Our bed and breakfast suggests the following 5 day plan:
Take an island tour. This will give you an overview of the island and introduce you to places for you to explore more on your trip. There are half day and full day tours available to suit every taste. Some of our favorites are Caribbean Historical Tours or St Thomas Food Tours.
Enjoy a guided tour of the water. St Thomas Adventure tours does small group & private customized snorkeling tours. They will take you to off the beaten path locations most visitors otherwise miss. Guides will make sure you don't miss some of the amazing marine life and will tell you about the wonderful animals you do see. Later on, take a stroll along the newly renovated waterfront. It's a beautiful way to leisurely stroll to Yacht Haven for dinner overlooking the water.
St Thomas has plenty of famous beaches to explore. We are minutes away from Magens Bay and Brewer's Bay. A bit farther Secret Harbor and Lindqvist Beach are also great choices. Afterwards, enjoy a sunset sail. Most are 2-3 hours and include snacks and drinks to toast the sunset.
Relax by the pool! Catch up with a good book, surf the web, get a bottle of one of our locally crafted spirits and enjoy some snacks poolside while you relax. Afterwards enjoy the sunset over cocktails and dinner at Oceana or Prime. (Bonus - ride the tram up to Paradise Point if you're going to Prime!)
Take a walk on the wild side. Explore the Phantasea Botanical gardens - there is always something beautiful blooming. Afterwards, spend time shopping for unique handmade items in town. Some of our favorite shops with handmade items are Creative Native, Mystic by the Sea, and Art Exchange.
