IFF: Paradise Point

Good Day Friends,

Thanks for checking in for another Island Feature Friday! Today’s will be short and sweet.

One of the most common pieces of advice that visitors seek for us hospitality folks is, “where’s the best place to catch the sunset?” Wherever you are in the VI is a great place to “catch the sunset”. In all seriousness and sincerity, the Virgin Island sunsets are some of the most beautiful in the world. I have seen vivid pinks and purples, bright light blues, and fire orange and red sunsets from various spots on island.  And I will always maintain the notion that the best place is always a sailboat. Always. But if you’re looking to capture the moment when St. Thomas goes from sunshine to shadow in that picture-perfect island silhouette you’ve been dreaming of since you booked your flight, Paradise Point is where you want to be.

Paradise Point

Paradise Point is many things: a Skyride, shops, a bird show, and a restaurant. It’s a popular spot for cruise shippers as it’s a one-stop shop for great photos of St. Thomas, souvenir shopping, food and drinks, and the unique experiences of the tram and the tropical bird show. Paradise Point has live music and food specials various nights of the week as well. If you’re looking to do all, early afternoon is the best time to go. However they often offer evening specials on tram rides as it can be a little pricey, and the sunset should be priority.

Like most things in the VI, St. Thomas sunsets don’t change much throughout the year. We have a sunset range from about 5:30pm (winters) to 7pm (summers). Time of year, weather patterns, and Sahara dust levels are just a few of the factors that impact the “type” of sunset you may experience on any given day. But from the vantage point of Paradise Point, it will always be breathtaking!



Short and sweet but an invaluable tip for epic St. Thomas sunsets! Thanks for checking in! Real life posts coming soon 🙂
