breathtaking view , can lead you from 1 area of the island to another while getting an ocean breeze. of course you do have your beggars,homeless etc.... but overall they leave you alone & it doesn't detract from the view

Off course the shopping here is top quality with top price as compared to Main and Back Streets and the atmosphere is quite uplifting with the Waterfront ever present.

The drive via the waterfront highway is really pretty but as a resident of the continental US i found it a bit crazy driving. They drive not only European style but with non-European vehicles. It felt like a double wrong when being on their vehicles. The drive shows the pretty piers and blue waters of the island. These people have... More

To go diving each morning, I walked from my B&B in Charlotte all the way to the Crown Bay Marina and back four days in a row. And always enjoyed the experience. Often, in the evenings I walked a mile or so in the opposite direction for some new dining experience. In either direction, I enjoyed the Waterfront Highway.

Be careful if you want to cross the highway...the drivers always seem to be in a hurry (sound like a typical US city?). Many cruisers just opt to stay on the ship... More

We always enjoy spending time along the waterfront shopping district. My wifes likes to negotiate deals and I love to people watch among the historic harbor and buildings...... Driving and Parking can be a little crazy, but it makes it even more of an "experience"........

Great view, but you need to be prepared for taking you life in your own hands. Other drivers are very agressive.

I drove by this place on a open safari truck. It was beautiful and interesting to see. There are cruise ships docked in the bay and street vendors on this road. This road is a good way to look at the turquoise blue waters and people of St. Thomas.

You can walk literally right on the edge next to the ocean. It goes on for miles and we took a lot of our pictures from the sidewalk with the stunning views in the background. You will love it!
