A City with a Swashbuckling Past

This stunning harbor, filled with pleasure boats and encircled by emerald hills dotted with pastel houses, was once the center of a bustling pirate culture, as swashbuckling knaves such as Blackbeard and Drake traded stolen wares in the port of Charlotte Amalie.

Today many of their old warehouses have been converted to shops and malls, where you may spend your pieces of eight on an array of treasures those buccaneers could never have imagined.

Not a shopper? Hit the water without walking the plank when you pilot your own Zodiac, or an underwater motor scooter.

BLACKBEARD’S CASTLE

This hilltop bastion was built in the 1600s to provide advance warning to Fort Christian. With no evidence that the infamous Blackbeard visited St. Thomas, the actual name of the oldest unaltered structure on the island is Skytsborg Tower.
