Things to do in St. Thomas

There are so many things to do in St. Thomas that there will never be a dull moment when you’re there. That is unless you want it to be: the stunning beaches such as Coki Beach or Coral World Ocean Park welcome you for at least one day of relaxation on the sand. If you’re wondering what to do in St. Thomas at night, you can expect plenty of live music, ranging from steel guitar to live piano shows. But if the nightlife scene isn’t for you, tire yourself out during the day with the wonderful amount of air tours, bicycling, boating, and water excursions that are available. If you’re extra adventurous, dedicate a day to learning how to wind surf or sea kayak. If you prefer to stay hands-off when booking things to do in St. Thomas, charter a boat and sail around the island, enjoying its extraordinary beauty from the water.

Whatever you decide about what to do in St. Thomas during your visit, consider transportation options. There are taxis available, and your hotel can certainly call you a cab and direct your drive to your restaurant or guided tour. But if you rent a car, note that the roads on the island are marked by numbers, and this can be confusing! Ask for guidance at your hotel desk before you head out.
