We will be in Aruba, Curacao, St. Martin and St. Thomas. Would you guys suggest ship shore excursions or touring island for general sightseeing? Any suggestions for beaches for these islands, we're not snoklers, more interested in tropical scenery. Love this site.-Terry
When we went to St Thomas in February what we did was we grabbed a taxi at the pier (they are all lined up so you'll be able to grab one right away) and he took us to the Red Hook Ferry which took us over to St John. There we rented a 4x4 jeep and toured the island ourselves. Went to Annaberg Sugar Mill Ruins and toured it, stopped at Trunk Bay to swim alittle bit (we don't snorkel but the water was bueatiful!) and took the jeep to Coral Bay and ate at Skinney Legs. Best burger I've ever had!
If you can take the ferry to St John...it's less populated and there are alot of places to stop and view the other islands in the distance...very pretty!
