We’re heading into Fall + for some of you, those cold winter months. Days are getting shorter and it’s about that time we all start dreaming of tropical vacations. Am I right?! We just got back from a dreamy vacay in St. Thomas and I’m so excited to share it with you! Here are 5 reasons why St. Thomas needs to be on your bucket list ASAP!
1// Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham (Wyndham St. Thomas)
This resort is incredible! It’s located on Water Bay in the cutest little cove! It’s the perfect escape for anyone who wants adventure OR if you prefer the more laid-back experience. We did a little bit of both here and loved every second!
Our favorite things to do at the resort were swim at the mountain top infinity pool, hang at the Margaritaville Restaurant, play pool games at the other pool + the spa!
St. Thomas is amazing because it’s the US, but it really feels like you are in an extremely exotic country. There are mountains and hills, the greenery is lush, and the weather is amazing. Unlike Florida, the temperatures rarely vary from the 80s in the day and 70s at night! + it’s always breezy!
We highly recommend staying at this resort when you visit! It’s the perfect location!
2// Underwater adventures
Just down the road from the Wyndham St. Thomas is an amazing place called Coral World Ocean Park. They have SO many exhibits and activities here, including sea lion encounters, a touch pool, turtle pool and more. We had the amazing opportunity to do SNUBA! SNUBA was amazing because you get the feeling and view of a scuba diver but you don’t have the cumbersome diving gear. A certified guide leads you on an adventure through the protected waters around Coral World.
We had SO much fun! This is definitely something I would do again!
If you aren’t in the mood for a guided adventure like SNUBA, you can always rent scuba gear at one of the local beaches!
3// Beautiful Beaches
Speaking of beautiful beaches, holy cowwwww – St. Thomas is full of them! One of St. Thomas’ beaches, Magens Bay was actually voted as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches by both Conde Nast + National Geographic.
All over the island there are tons of other beautiful beaches like Brewer’s Bay, Bologna Bay, Hull Bay, Secret Harbor, Sapphire Beach, and Coki Bay. They are all stunning!
4// The VIEWS!
Everywhere you look, there is an amazing view. I was BLOWN AWAY by the hills and mountains. We took a tour around the whole island and got to see some of the most famous views of St. Thomas – it was awesome! My favorite place for a stunning view was Mountain Top.
5// No passport or jet lag!
St. Thomas is a US Territory, so you don’t need a passport! All you need is your Driver’s License and Birth Certificate. The time in St. Thomas is only one hour ahead of Eastern time, so there is no jet lag!
St. Thomas is a really cool place to add to your bucket list because it’s familiar yet EXOTIC. People in the USVI speak English and use the dollar. There’s WIFI everywhere and even a Kmart!
I highly recommend adding St. Thomas to your bucket list. When you come here, definitely stay at the Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham! It’s the place to be!
