“This place has an unbelievable view of Charlotte Amalie and they require reservations as they only do a single seating each night they are open, so call head. They have a wood fire grill that cooks up some great steaks. Also, they have an interesting honor bar, which is fun to make your own drinks.”

“This wide soft beach offers neat open air beach front bars for enjoying the trade winds and a refreshing drink. Several restaurants are available for having a nice lunch or grabbing a quick snack. A water sports booth offers kayaks, snorkeling, diving, paddle boats & windsurfers among other fun activities. Families with young children will enjoy the small playground located just past the end of the beach. It is common to see iguanas in the hotel gardens and along the rocky coast close to the playground. Lingbergh Bay is in close proximity to the airport and a short drive from downtown Charlotte Amalie”
