Make a Holiday Rental Villa in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands Your Home Away From Home

 

The beautiful island of St. Thomas, part of the U.S Virgin Islands, lies in the Caribbean Sea near to the island of Puerto Rico.

Things to Do on Holiday to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands

There are so many things to see and do on St. Thomas that you may find that you use your rental villa purely to rest your head on a pillow! The beaches are clean and sandy with a variety of watersports available including snorkelling, surfing, deep sea fishing, sailing, diving and jet skiing. Even if you are not overly keen on watersports, the waters are so warm in the sea around the island too that it is difficult not to be tempted to take a dip.

Places to Visit on Holiday to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands

The capital of Charlotte Amalie is where many of St. Thomas’ attractions lie and it is well worth venturing out of your rental villa to visit. This city is steeped in history with tales of pirates and privateers entering the deep harbour port here. Charlotte Amalie is also home to the second oldest synagogue in the whole of the Western Hemisphere.

One sight that is not to be missed whilst out and about in the city is Blackbeard’s Castle. The watchtower is one of the five National Historic Landmarks of the U.S Virgin Islands and was built by the Danish in 1679. There are stories that the name Blackbeard’s Castle arose as it was rumoured that the infamous pirate himself used the watchtower to scour the seas for passing ships.

The St. Thomas Synagogue is not only the second oldest in the Western World, it has a lot of unusual features. The bimah and benches are made from mahogany wood for example. Probably the most intriguing feature of the synagogue is the floor which is covered in a heavy layer of sand. It is not known the exact reason for this and there are several theories. The synagogue has a small museum attached to it which has a lot of historical Jewish artefacts from previous years.
