Occupying the easternmost part of Saint Thomas, East End counts Coral World Ocean Park, the Mangrove Lagoon Marine Reserve and Wildlife Sanctuary and a sensational array of pristine white-sand beaches among its many highlights. The amenities of Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands, are just a short drive from all East End vacation rentals, while regular ferries from Red Hook Bay whisk travelers across to Saint John, home to the beautiful Virgin Islands National Park, in just 20 minutes. No matter where you choose to base yourself, you'll find adventure easy to come by in East End.

Things to do

East End views from picturesque Paradise Point

To enjoy the best views of the island, head to picturesque Paradise Point. The gondola here soars 700-feet above the Charlotte Amalie Harbor to a summit, where a meandering nature trail offers views of Saint Croix and the Puerto Rican island of Culebra. Down below, ground-level attractions include the botanical gardens that surround St. Peter Great House and the aquarium, undersea observatory and touch pools at Coral World Ocean Park. A little way west of East End, Pistarckle Theater in Tillett Gardens is just the ticket for those wanting to include a little culture in their stay.

Activities

Discover a tropical paradise in East End

Guided tours of the island are one of the quickest ways to discover Saint Thomas' best-loved sights, though there's a lot to be said for exploring at your own pace. No matter how you choose to discover this tropical paradise, you can be sure that enjoying the turquoise waters will feature heavily on your agenda. Boat cruises are available for much of the year, many offering travelers the chance to spend time at the island's best snorkeling and kayaking spots, though it's easy enough to score some rental equipment and set out to find your own idyllic surroundings.

Weather

Idyllic winter breaks in East End

While you'll find the best deals for East End vacation rentals during the hurricane season of July through October, it will come as no surprise that the highest demand for accommodation comes between December and March, peak season, when glorious sunny days replace frequent rain to offer an idyllic winter getaway. Breaks to East End during the months of April through June often serve up a compromise, when the weather is still pleasant and rates affordable for a wide selection of adorable vacation homes.

Natural features

Hit the beach in stunning East End

East End vacation rentals are tantalizingly close to an abundance of beautiful beaches, leaving it up to you to decide whether you find your perfect sandy spot on Lindquist Beach or settle back to enjoy the pretty surroundings of Coki Point. At Red Bay, regular excursions set out into the Caribbean Sea for those travelers keen to try their hand at parasailing, while those who are not so adventurous can seek out stunning sunsets from the vantage point of Drake's Seat, a spot from which Sir Francis Drake is rumored to have kept a close eye on his famous fleet.
