St. Thomas is extremely beautiful. It is well known for it’s shopping. This is because they tend to have high quality items for reasonable prices. Don’t forget to haggle with them, they expect it. Magans Bay, which is pictured, is a small private beach with a small fee to get in, I believe it was $5 in 2001. It is well worth it. The sand is white and soft, the water is clear and blue. It is a beautiful spot to relax and start off a vacation.
