Caribbean Tourism

St Thomas

St Thomas rises out of the sea to a range of hills that runs down its spine. The highest peak, Crown Mountain, is 1,550ft. On St Peter Mountain, 1,500ft, is a viewpoint at Mountain Top.


Various scenic roads can be driven such as Skyline Drive (Route 40), from which both sides of the island can be seen simultaneously, and Mafolie Road (Route 35) that leaves the capital, Charlotte Amalie, heading north to cross the Skyline Drive becoming Magens Bay Road, and descends to the beautiful bay. Much of the island has been built upon, especially on its east half. St Thomas is 13 miles long and less than three miles wide, with an area of 32 square miles.
