Just a few comments about our WONDERFUL 7 day trip to St. Thomas. Stayed at Watergate Villas in Bolongo Bay - great place to stay... went to several, several beaches on ST. Thomas and St. John both by boat and by driving... BEST for just relaxing - Megan's Bay (the sand felt like silky cookie dough); BEST for snorkeling and relaxing - Sapphire Beach. Of course some days there were 0 cruise ships in town; other days only 1, so that probably helped..Great food at the restaurants in Red Hook! Great drinks everywhere~ Mastered the driving perfectly!
Con - We found that the local people working in shops, grocery stores, etc. were not nice at all, very bitter and not friendly. Being from Louisiana, we killed them with kindness, and were lucky to get a smile... We were really surprised by that, but oh well... It did not ruin our trip!
