“The most iconic beach on St. Thomas doesn't disappoint! Check the cruise ship schedule at vinow.com to try for a day with no ships or just a few, as this beach is the most popular destination when ships are in town! If you go on a busy day, head down to the furthest (left as you look at the water) side of the beach, which is usually much less crowded and still just as beautiful!”

Lighthouse
“Vieques has one of the only bio bays in the world and people come from all over the world to see it. So yes, it's a must see. Tours leave from Esperanza and choices range from glass bottom boats to kayaks. Best to go on nights with dim moon - but any night is good. Must see!”

Other Great Outdoors
“Buck Island tenders two sides of the same great coin: one of the world’s best beaches on one, and a prime snorkeling site on the other. Just 20 minutes by boat, the island represents just one percent of Buck Island Reef National Monument, a pie-shaped, (mostly) underwater park designed to protect the fragile coral reef and marine environment ”

Neighbourhood
“Red Hook is a great neighborhood to hand around in. Why not tour around Red Hook after you get back from your customized boat charter at Local Flavor Charters (get your discount by mentioning OceanStar Hideaway). Get great drinks, a little dancing, awesome food, watch the boats then some more late night drinks. Lots of great bars and restaurants in this awesome neighborhood. Take your time you can definitely come back more than once.”
