Hi Mahojim, we’re staying the last day on St. Thomas, I originally booked at the Green Iguana hotel, today I went to look at it again & decided to change. Previously we’ve always stayed at the Frenchman’s Reef but they’re still rebuilding. We’re going in March, tonight I started rethinking this & went for Emerald Beach Resort. I wanted us to have the beach, pool & pool bar/restaurant on our last day. I’ll thank you now for your post that made me update our trip. Flight the next day is early afternoon so this should be perfect & easy.
Soarin' with the eagles all week long, and this is all that we've learned about living - VACATION!

Sorry to be vague-
Landing on Friday, staying on STT, then going Saturday to Saturday on STJ.
Any ideas appreciated.

MJ, isn't Emerald Beach still an option for your first night? As you are probably aware, there really aren't many options anywhere which are walking distance to bars & restaurants, although Emerald Beach is a quick taxi ride to Frenchtown. If you want to be closer to Red Hook, I'm not sure who would rent for one night (I'm sure Sapphire Beach nor Secret Harbor does, maybe Sapphire Village?). Enjoy!

Good to see you're getting back for a visit!

Check out https://www.olgasfancy.com/ in French Town. It is walkable to the French Town restaurants and the French Town Brewery (tastings on Fridays).

Cheers, RickG

Rick beat me to it. Olga's Fancy is on our list for the next STT stayover.

Emerald Beach for our last night is a Must for our crew. (and we have done a first night there too)

Glad to see you are coming back!
