Shopping in ST. THOMAS: (Free Shuttle Service Between ST. Thomas and St. John’s)

The Virgin Islands have a long history of being a PRIME SHOPPING DESTINATION. In the 1700 and 1800’s the islands were key locations for trade. The calm and natural harbors found in the Virgin Islands were inviting to boats of all kinds. Merchants dominated Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and Christiana, St. Croix. The free trade rules of the time meant traders from all nations could sell their wares in the Virgin Islands without being affected by disputes in Europe. Today the tradition of beautiful location and great shopping continues.

The Islands bustling ports are still line with goods from all over the world. In the yesteryears warehouses lined the streets and alleys– today these warehouses have been renovated into plush air-conditioned boutiques and shops that showcase everything from precious stones and jewelry to electronics, art and souvenirs.
