nice. DO NOT take cab from ports. $40 per couple //PLUS there is a FEE of $10 per person to get on beach they bring you to. We walked 5 min, and jumped in a cab for $5 per person and taken to a free beach.

By far the best of the best! We absolutely loved St Thomas, the people were friendly. We did an excursion through the cruise line Sky Ride to Paradise Point. What a beautiful view of the port on top of the mountain. Our driver then took us to Megan's Bay for a relaxing time at the beach. What miraculous site!! I could live there forever.
Bought an excursion right outside the gate for $25 each that took us around the island for a few hours. One of the stops was at the Mountain Top for banana daiquiris and a great view. A few other stops where at hilltop lookouts that also included a lot of vendors set up to sale you stuff but not bad tho. We got dropped off at Magen’s Bay. I think it was $5 each to get in, and we paid for a taxi back, around $5 each. Don’t really remember. We got lucky and it was pretty empty. I liked it so much I would fly there just to swim. Overall had a great day.
We had 3 families in our group we booked David's Fun Tours for a tour of the island. This tour was the highlight of our vacation for everyone in our group. Dave was amazing. Air conditioned bus for just our group of 12. He tailor the trip to whatever we wanted to do. No shopping to meals that we didn't want to do. He was so informative, pulling over multiple times to pick fruits and leaves and explain different foliage to our group which sounds like it would be boring for a group of teenagers but he was so much fun. He stayed with us while we enjoyed the better part of the day at Megan's Bay Beach. Had a cooler full of water for us. My daughter fed random roadside goats he had bananas for. We of course wanted to hit up a few touristy places for photos and souvenirs. That is where his professionalism really shined. We watched countless drivers struggle with parking and turning around one driver repeatedly hit a planter box trying to turn his van around....Not David. He literally took us everywhere we even went through the projects. Which was an eye opener. He is very proud of his island and it showed the entire trip. He made us all want to move there! I think if we didn't have a ship to catch we still may be riding around with David! We felt safe at all times and can't wait to go back again. Could not recommend him enough.
St. Thomas is one of my favorite places. Great shopping and lots to do. Last time we were there we were sitting near the pier when a man from a local cafe came out with lettuce. Or at least I thought it was lettuce. The iguanas came rushing from the rocks lining the shore from as far away as 100 yards. They must've been conditioned to know when feeding time was. We watched them until they scarfed down all the scraps then some scurried back to the rocks while others looked to the tourists watching to see if they could get extra handouts. Very amusing and fun to watch.
