About St. Thomas
The picturesque town of Charlotte Amalie is the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands and is known for its regular infusion of cruise ships, making this island the cruise ship capital of the Caribbean. The population is just shy of St. Croix’s at 51,181, and spans 31.24 miles.
If you enjoy the hustle-bustle lifestyle with a taste of the Caribbean, this is the place for you. Lots of shopping, albeit lots of traffic. Out of the three main Virgin Islands, this is where the action is! St. Thomas is a short ferry ride to St. John, and only a few miles away from the British Virgin Islands.
