Things to do

Riding high in Estate Frenchman's Bay

To soak up the best of the island's legendary views, there are few better places to head than the gondola at Paradise Point. Located just minutes from most Estate Frenchman's Bay vacation rentals, this popular sky ride whisks visitors to a 700-foot peak overlooking the harbor at Charlotte Amalie. At the summit, you'll find an entertainment center, souvenir shopping and a nature trail, not to mention glimpses of St. Croix and Culebra. On lower ground, a memorable trip comes courtesy of the St. Peter Great House and Botanical Gardens where an expertly restored colonial plantation house takes pride of place among an array of Caribbean plants.


Exploring Estate Frenchman's Bay

A guided tour is one of the quickest ways to get to know the island paradise of Saint Thomas. Tour options vary so you can choose the option that appeals to you – whether it's kayaking in the waters of the Mangrove Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Reserve, swimming among the brightly colored tropical fish found at the coral ledges near Coki Point Beach or visiting historic Hassel Island. Alternatively, if you savor the freedom of being able to explore at your own pace, hiring a car will allow you to linger in any new-found favorite spot for just as long as you like.


Glorious winters in Estate Frenchman's Bay

The best deals on Estate Frenchman's Bay vacation rentals are typically found during the low season months of July through October. However, a stay on the island during these affordable months – aka the hurricane season – means you'll likely have to deal with a fair number of rainy days. Far better to splurge on a sun-drenched stay during the winter months of December through March when you'll find the temperature hot but comfortable and the night's blissfully cool. A compromise between rental rates and idyllic weather can often be found in the shoulder season of April through May.

Natural features

Diverse landscapes near Estate Frenchman's Bay

Saint Thomas is not short of a natural delight or 2 but in the unlikely event that you manage to visit all the island's most beautiful spots, a 20-minute ride on the ferry from Red Hook Bay on the east coast over to Saint John offers the chance to explore the verdant landscape of the Virgin Islands National Park. The park covers around 2/3 of Saint John, the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, hosting surprises such as the ruins of the 18th-century Annaberg Plantation and scenic horse riding trails overlooking Hurricane Hill and Coral Bay Harbor.
