Destination guide

Estate Smith Bay offers more than beaches

If you're lucky enough to nab an Estate Smith Bay vacation rental tucked along the coast, in the north-east of Saint Thomas, you can spend your days kicking back on some of the most beautiful beaches the island has to offer. Though it can be tempting to settle into being a beach bum for the entirety of your vacation, this buzzy island has got plenty going on away from the stretches of powdery white sand. Spend your evenings swaying to the sound of live bands, take to the skies on a pleasure flight, or explore the history of European invaders and plundering pirates at the hilltop forts.

Things to do

Rare orchids at Estate Smith Bay

If you've bagged an Estate Smith Bay vacation rental, you'll be just moments away from Coral World Ocean Park, a marine life center that offers close encounters with some of the Virgin Islands' most fascinating wildlife. For a little slice of history, you can amble around Blackbeard's Castle and Fort Christian, both strategic defense points built by the Danish invaders in the 17th century and later used by the real pirates of the Caribbean as lookouts. Afterwards, consider an afternoon at the Phantasea Tropical Botanical Garden, which houses a huge collection of exotic orchids.


Fish for your supper at Estate Smith Bay

If you tire of kicking back on the sandy beaches, or at your Estate Smith Bay vacation rental, you'll be pleasantly surprised at what there is to do on Saint Thomas. The lively port capital of Charlotte Amalie is awash with waterside bars and restaurants, which lure in guests with the sound of live music every evening. During the day, you could score a private fishing charter to reel in a trophy blue marlin, or see the achingly-beautiful island from the windows of a helicopter flight. If you salivate over the thought of freshly caught seafood cooking on drum barbecues, hop on one of the food tours.


It's always hot at Estate Smith Bay

If you want to escape the freezing winters, consider scoring an Estate Smith Bay vacation rental, where winter sun awaits on the island of Saint Thomas. It's the busiest season, particularly over the festive period when families swap turkey and sprouts for grilled seafood on the beach. While everyone back home huddles around fires to keep warm, you can bask in comfortable temperatures that hover around the 80s. If you're looking to avoid the crowds, slip into Saint Thomas between April and June, when the sun still shines before rainy season and the rental prices dip.

Natural features

See creatures of the deep at Estate Smith Bay

Though you can find the odd iguana basking in the midday sun, or parrots squawking from the treetops, for close wildlife encounters you'll need to dive into the ocean. This colorful underwater world teems with corals inhabited by all manner of marine life. Expect to see curious sea turtles, exotic parrotfish and 500 more creatures of the deep. Don't have your PADI? No problem. You don't need training to slip on a snorkel and flippers and float on the surface, peering down at the species below. Face-to-face wildlife encounters are waiting just moments away from your Estate Smith Bay vacation rental.
