My Favorite Inexpensive Restaurant Is:

Lattitude 18. Really really good food.

My Favorite Pricey Restaurant Is: We really don't do pricey restaurants. If we have a good breakfast and a good lunch, we're usually not that hungry, so we usually just snack.

My Favorite Thing To Do Is: Definetly hang on the beach and snorkel.

The Best View Is: The view from Mountaintop was really amazing. Too bad it's not there anymore. Sunset at Paradise point is just as good. I have gorgeous pictures from there. So cool to sit out there, have a couple drinks, see the sunset, watch the seaplanes land and do a little shopping.

The Best Sunset I Saw Was: Again, Paradise Point.

The Coolest Thing I Saw Underwater Was: Sea Turles, HUGE starfish and a baby squid :o)

My Favorite Place To Snorkel Is: There's quite a few. Honeymoon and Maho on STJ. Coki and Sapphire on STT.

The Best Thing I've Ever Eaten On The Islands Is: Over to the Beach Bar, right off the ferry is the Beach Bar. They have a Tuna Down Now that is incredible. I get it everytime I go to STJ

My Favorite Memory Is: Sitting out on the point at Sapphire Beach with the wind blowing, the stars were shining. We were in our beach chairs, with an Ipod, our drinks and I was with my favorite person in the world. My husband.

My Favorite Island Is...Because: STT.

My Favorite Excursion Was: Captain Kevin with his boat Born to Rhumb. Great guy, great boat. LOTS of fun.

My Favorite Place To Shop Is: Shopping is not for me.

The One Thing I Always Make Sure To Do Is: Relax, kick back and go with the flow of the Island. We also make at least one trip on the car barge over to STJ.

The best excursion for us was on the Nightwind Yacht at Sapphire Bay for sailing and snorkeling. Breakfast,lunch and your drinks are included.Outstanding service. Best pricey restaurant was Le Caribe at the Wyndham hotel Sugar Bay. Best inexpensive restaurant was Latitude 18 in Red Hook. We stayed at the Point Pleasant hotel and had a beautiful cliffside view of the other islands.We were glad that we rented a car as you will end up spending as much on the taxis.
