Skyride for a view of Charlotte Amalie

We were not told that the last tram down was at 4pm, so felt a bit rushed. Would have like to stay longer on top

We arrived by cruise ship and easily completed the short walk from the pier to the Sky Ride. We were a little taken aback by the $21 PP US fee as we thought that was a bit steep but we were already here. There was another couple in line that we struck up a conversation with. When she saw all... More

The view was spectacular from the restaurant, the beer was cold and I probably had the best tasting order of nachos. Great value for the money.

I don't think you can find a place on the island with a better sunset. We drove to the top, had excellent service and good food. check the times they are open, they have specific nights.

The view from Paradise Point was one of our absolute highlights in Charlotte Amalie. The view is totally stunning. The cruise ships, the yacht harbor, the city itself and the BLUE turqoiuse water is something to behold. Go all the way down the stairs, there are 3 viewing platforms and the restaurant is on the lowest level. Cold beer and... More

This is the best view of the islands. The people are so friendly. Great shopping and food. We really enjoyed the fish bites and fries. The bucket of beer wasn't bad either.

There are steps involved to get to the ride. Our car was full which hindered good views on the ascent. Once at the top, taking the time to walk around afforded beautiful views of St. Thomas. There are lots of local craft stores to walk through and be sure to take time to look at the silver and other artifacts... More

What a delightful little excursion! It was inexpensive, east to get to by taxi, and held the most bezutiful views of the bay you could ever imagine. We had lunch in their restaurant and were just as impressed by the local home cooking. The little shops were a hoot, too. We did this excursion, and a beach afterwards, and still... More

A little pricey, but worth the ride and the view. They don't call it Paradise for nothing. Take your time and enjoy the view with a drink from the bar. The bushwhacker was really good.

It's a truly beautiful view with food and shops. We didn't eat and only paid the over priced fee to ride to top for photos and jewelry from Mel Fisher's treasure. As a Floridian from birth it was important to get there to see the coins made from silver brought up by Mel from the Atocha shipwreck. I would not... More
