Morning Star Beach Shop and Magen's Boutique have good selections. These are not Walmart prices, however! 😉

Hello Tam,

Swim on In - in Charlotte Amalie has a large selection. Cosmopolitan carries a couple. And in havensight Caribbean Surf Comp. has swim trunks and some bikinis.
The store at Magens Bay carries swim wear and I think the little store at Sapphire Beach has a small selection too. K-mart carries a few pieces.

Prices: $80-$100 avg. (some more, some less)

We will be staying @ Bolongo Bay for 8 nights in January. I have read some not so good reviews of course, cannot satify everyone but am alittle concerned. Can someone please fill me in. Thank you.

I was just in St. John (and afternoon in St. Thomas). All the swimsuit prices were like the previous post - high! But nice stuff! I did not buy any clothing because everything I picked up (like a simple skirt) was like $90. I am sure they had better prices at other stores but I did not have time to look.

I know finding a bathing suit this time of year is hard, but if you have tanning salons in your town (like Atlantic Tanning), they sell suits year round. Also, we have a store in our mall called Water Everywhere that only sells bathing suits -- all name brands $80+ but very nice stuff! So nice, you don't want to get it wet! I would also check the internet -- buy like 4 and return the ones you dont like or don't fit!

Peggy, if you are looking for a quite laid-back place, Bolongo Bay is for you.

It is small, and very friendly. The rooms are clean, the food is great, the rooms are very close to the beach, and the staff are wonderful.

I am planing another trip soon the STT, and Bolongo Bay is the only place I stay.
