The beautiful St Thomas! The first time I went to St Thomas I fell absolutely in love with the island and knew that I would want to come back. At that time we went to Sapphire beach, this time around we headed over to Cokki beach. On our ride over we were reminiscing about our first trip there and were able to point out familiar landmarks and roads from the previous trip.
We drove through the local roads passing shops, restaurants and some street art on the highway. When you get to Cokki beach there is beautiful clear water on the left hand side but the beach is actually on the right hand side behind the wooden deck and the view is breathtaking.
There are food and drink vendors on the beach. Our lady Christina hooked us up with some really good food and strong rum punch. (The best local food I had from every island we went to). St Thomas seems like a very peaceful island with some hidden gems. I definitely would like to plan a trip back there and visit some of their attraction sites such as: Blackbeard’s Castle, the Skyride to Paradise Point, and Coral World Ocean Park.
We stayed a short day in St Thomas because we left the ship too late. We spent about 2 to 3 hours and then headed back to the ship. Before getting onboard we stopped by a local area. There was literally no one inside this bar but we still decided to go in. We drank some rum punch and chatted with the owner: Uncle Daniel. He was 77 but looked like he was in his 50s. He spoke about his children and that he’s been to New York City several times. St Thomas was a good start of what was to come for the rest of the islands.
