Where to see sunset in st . Thomas? Near red hook...
How far is paradise point from red hook? And is there a nice beach to watch sunset in st thomas?
Paradise Point is in Havensight, opposite the WICO cruise ship dock, about a 20 minute drive from Red Hook. Can't think of a beach where you can actually see the sun sink over the horizon as it'll be obscured by the bay formations. Maybe someone else can help with that. As I said, the higher you are the better the (unobstructed) view. And, again, dusk is very short and if you blink you can miss the sun's final descent.
The sunsets in STT are on speed compared to our long and beautiful NE sunsets.
This may sound funny but I LOVE watching sunsets from the top floor balcony of the condo at Sapphire. It is odd in that Sapphire faces the east and the sun sets in the west but the reflection of the clouds and the kaleidoscope of colors is beautiful.
If you are lucky and are down there when there is a full moon and the stars align it is also a treat to watch the full moon clear Tortolla and emit a highway of light across the water to your doorstep.
Finally sun rise on the east end is special if you are up that early.
Is it showing that it doesn't take much to amuse me and I am a nature kind of guy!Edited: 27 July 2012, 17:23
I agree, Bill. Where I live now I only have a very small slivered glimpse of the Atlantic but the sky as the sun sets is simply glorious and is a never-ending delight of colors reflecting off the clouds as the birds flock to nest for the night and the night denizens start chirruping away, ready to go full throttle once the sun is finally down! Ahhhhh ....
