The three islands and the 60 cays that comprise the US Virgin Islands include some of the most magnificent coast on earth. An absolute perfect choice for a family vacation, St Thomas is the place to be. The area is host to nearly two million vacationers each year. Most of the islands, cays and jutting rocks that make up the territory are clustered around the 30 square mile island of St Thomas which lies 1000 miles south of Miami, 75 miles east of Puerto Rico and just southwest of the British Virgin Islands.

St. Thomas has a year round temperature averaging 78°F. The ever-present trade winds keep the air from being unbearably hot. In addition, the region reports lower humidity levels than many of the other places in the Caribbean, making it a vacation paradise in both summer and winter.A St Thomas family vacation is sure to please the most choosy of families. With pristine beaches and tons of sun.  On nearly any day of the year, there are many hours of sunshine. Many forget while on their family vacation in places like St Thomas to keep the sunblock handy, but be sure to apply sunblock or sunscreen often, as the sun is much stronger there. Rain showers do come, but they’re usually a welcome relief and pass quickly.

St Thomas falls under the Atlantic Time Zone. Daylight saving time not observed. Otherwise, it is the same as Eastern Standard Time.  And US appliances will work with no adapter. See here for more city information for your St Thomas family vacation.

Busy Charlotte Amalie ( uh-MAL-ya: named for the wife of King Christian V in 1691), at the heart of the island is the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands, and it remains the shopping hub of the Caribbean. The beaches on this island are renowned for their white sand and calm, turquoise waters. National Geographic rated the island as one of the top destinations in the world for sailing, scuba diving, and fishing.
