St. Thomas Beaches
The beach has plenty of lounge chairs and palm trees for some quiet reading time or sneaking in a nap. For the swimmers, you'll find a nice smooth bay for dipping unless the winds are up. A couple days were fairly windy so we were able to enjoy a bit of body-surfing/wave splashing. Nice fun! For the sand sculptor, the beach is not great for verticle sculpting. It appears to be a sand-crushed sea shell mix but I did manage to carve out a nice palm tree. (horizontally) Verticle sculpting in the form of towers or castles turned out to be too risky. I didn't even attempt an arch!Cheers!
