My first love will always be the island of St.Thomas. It was here at Bolongo Bay that I spent a month on my Honeymoon back in 1980. I return to St.Thomas every year when I can and frequent some of my favorite places. Bolongo Bay is a great place for just about everything, especially with kids! That being said, you never have to leave the resort!!!. If you are like me and like to explore, I would rent a car. Order it a month before you travel! Stay on the left and please be aware of your surroundings at night. You must go to St.John's, Virgin Gorda, Tortola & Jost Van Dyke and see Foxy! Think you can't do all this. You can if you plan ahead. Day 1. Check ferry schedule. when cruise ships are not arriving, go shopping! Head over to Sapphire Beach for a day of swimming or check out Magen's Bay. Have a bite to eat at Iggy's and jump on Heavenly Days for that beautiful sail and zzz. Day 2. Hop on ferry (Red Hook) and go over to St.John's. If you want to be a tourist go to Trunk Bay. If you want to be an explorer go to Salt Pond. Just drive around and take it all in. I have found more places just driving around the island. Colombo's (middle of the jungle) Skinny Legs (great little place to eat)! Shopping I treat myself at INTO THE BLUE. Amazing jewelry. Head back and zzzz. Day 3 & 4. I like to hop back on ferry at RED HOOK and go over to Tortola for the day. I hop in a cab and go over to Cane Garden Bay and stay overnight zzzz. You can easily do this for Virgin Gorda (The Baths!!!) as well. Day 5. Try and get over to the Ritz Carlton if for nothing else, to just see it. Check out Frenchman's Reef and go over to the Aquarium. If you never made it to Magen's Bay, today might be the day. Tonight have dinner in Frenchtown. Craig & Sally's. zzz. Tired yet? LOL. Day 6. Try and get on a boat today (Sapphire Beach) and go snorkeling. I like to get over to Willy Tee's for lunch and just spend the day in the water. Tonight for some fun I would go to Duffy's Love Shack for a little dancing. Keep in mind this is a local spot and not for everyone (Adult oriented) or Latitude 18 (off the beaten path literally). Day 7. You may be heading back today so have a safe flight. I know you will come back again, as I always do. List of places to eat. Cuzzins, Mim's Seaside, Off The Hook, Bella Blu, Oceana, Greenhouse. If you can't stay at Bolongo, consider VRBO.com and looking for condo rentals next door as you can walk right to Bolongo. Good Luck !
