Caribbean Tourism

Shopping - St Thomas

Charlotte Amalie is packed with duty free shops & shoppers of all description. If you want to shop seriously, then this is the cheapest island of the three and has the largest selection. Nevertheless it is a good idea to have done your research at home and know what you want to buy.


NB The prices you see on the shelves of supermarkets and what you are charged are not always identical. Havensight Shopping Mall is recommended for people who want to get away from crowds and parking problems, smaller selection than in town, but same shops. For food: Gourmet Gallery at Crown Bay Marina and Havensight Deli in Havensight Mall. Local produce can be bought in the Market Square (most produce brought in by farmers on Sat 0530) and there are some small supermarkets and grocery stores. Solberg Supermart on Solberg Hill has a launderette (US$2 a load). Marina Market, in Red Hook is a good gourmet-type deli, opposite St John Ferry Dock. K-Mart near Four Winds sells inexpensive clothes, sporting goods, camping equipment and household goods. Pueblo Supermarket, near Safe Haven Marina, Crown Bay Marina, K-Mart and Kost U Less. Good arts and crafts centre at Tillet Gardens, opposite Four Winds Plaza. You can watch the craftsmen at work.
