A Vacation Rental Overlooking Magens Bay

Open your eyes and feast upon Magens Bay in St. Thomas. National Geographic and many major travel authorities have listed Magens Bay as one of the top ten beaches in the world.  It has been imaged as one of the most beautiful sites in the world and should not be missed. 

Better yet, a villa vacation rental will assure you that view everyday during your stay. No need leave anyone behind as this luxurious three bedroom Villa Gardenia sleeps six comfortably. With such soothing surroundings, reassure yourself to leave the premises and enjoy what St. Thomas can offer. ´

Beyond Magens Bay, The Nature Conservancy oversees a 300 acre preserve. Put on your walking shoes and follow the trail that takes you through the tropical forest and mangroves in the preserve. The scenic botanical gardens are perched 1,000 feet above sea level and with another trail heads down towards the beach.

Spend a day in the signature Caribbean waters both above and below at Coral World Ocean Park. This is not the run of mill aquarium. You have a choice of staying dry while viewing marine life in their Undersea Observatory 15 feet below the water’s surface. Your other option is Coral World’s “moon walking,” in which you wear an underwater helmet reminisce of “Flash Gordon” for a actual visit in the reef with a guide.

Board the high-tech Atlantis Submarine and be a passenger exploring the depths of the Caribbean’s fauna and inhabitants. If a sub is too confining for you, this world renowned corporation also offers catamaran snorkel sailings, so you won´t miss a thing under the sea.

St Thomas, Caribbean

From home to pirates to beach homes for visitors from across the globe, St Thomas teams with excitement and energy.  The “must see” island of the Caribbean, beach houses in St Thomas spot the shores now where once Bluebeard, Blackbeard, and Captain Kidd onces dropped anchor.  Still standing in Charlotte Amalie, not far from vacation rentals in St Thomas, is the famed home of the notorious pirate Blackbeard.

With the unbelievable coastline of St Thomas, each vacation rental in St Thomas is treated to a spectacular view of crystal blue waters drinking up the pristine white sandy beaches.  A short trip from your vacation home in St Thomas to Magens Bay on the North Coast yields an unsurpassable view found only movies and on postcards.  Such an amazing view from above the waterline surrounding vacation homes in St Thomas that it is hard to believe that anything as beautiful could exist underwater as well.  A snorkeling or scuba diving trip quickly yields a treasure of underwater jewels swimming by leaving you with a new respect for the paradise that is your St Thomas holiday villa

Things to see around your St. Thomas vacation home:

  • Drake’s Seat:  Known as the point of watch for the famous British Officer Sir Francis Drake, the view of the island from this vantage point is breath taking.  Tourists in cars and buses have the ability to pull off to the side of the road for snapshots and the opportunity to enjoy one of the most incredible views in the Caribbean.  The sparkling blue Caribbean waters shine in the sunlight that enhances the view of the whole island and port below.
  • Magens Bay Beach:  Noted by National Geographic as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches on the planet, Magens Bay Beach does not disappoint.  With a long history of uses by the military, rum runners, and sugar plantations, the picturesque playground in the sand is now the best place to relax and enjoy sun filled activities.
  • Fort Christian:  As the oldest building still withstanding time and the tropical weather, Fort Christian stands in bright relief of red and green against the tropical atmosphere of St. Thomas.  Originally built to protect the island against invaders, the excellent condition of Fort Christian is due to its constant use as a military installation, a prison, and, most currently, a museum.  Don’t miss the fabulous port views from the roof of Fort Christian.
  • Blackbeard’s Castle:  Whether due to the statues of Blackbeard, Edward Teach, around the tower or the impressive view of the town of Charlotte Amalie, the legends and lore surrounding the pirates are built into the culture of St. Thomas.  A visit to Blackbeard’s Castle with a walk up the 99 steps (ok…there are 103…I counted…its true!) makes for a perfect way to put a little energy into a lazy day!

With over 44 beaches throughout the island, your beach vacation is sure to be a huge success.  But, if you are interested in some shopping adventures while you are at St Thomas vacation rental homes, then you are in luck!  With the largest duty free port in the world, St Thomas stands with open arms to welcome shoppers visiting from St Thomas vacation rentals.  Topped off with incredible dining experiences in each of the restaurants across the island, a vacation rental home in St Thomas is the only place to get your beach rental.
