If you are going to St Thomas this is a must do. At the top is a restaurant and bar. The restaurant is nothing to write home about I would recommend only for a snack. Have a cold beer or frozen drink and enjoy the view. Come later in afternoon and see the sunset it is unreal overlloking the port... More

Visited St Thomas last week and did the tramway lift. I can say that once you get to the top, the view and picture taking is beautiful!!... but...to get to the lift, you must climb alot of steep steps. Not really much else at the top, there are some vendors but nothing special. I think you could do just as... More

We just did this tram ride last week when we arrived on a cruise. The view is beautiful but they stole our credit card numbers and made several charges prior to us getting back into the states. We know it was them because the charge for the ride is from Texas and all of our fraudulent charges were also in... More

Great service and pictures overlooking Long Bay and the cruise ship harbor. And the best braut hot dogs with... More

My wife and I recently took the Paradise Point Tramway during our cruise to St Thomas. The Tramway is located right across from the where the cruise ships dock. The roundtrip ride cost $20 per adult. We had to wait about 15 minutes for our ride to the top. While we waited, our picture was taken and we were told... More

If you like breathtaking views this is the one to try. Tram takes you to the top of Paradise Point overlooking the harbor and all the islands of the USVI. Restaurant at the top where you can sit eat and enjoy the beautiful view. Staff cordial and accommodating there.

We decided to do this last minute before the boat took off. The cost was more than I wanted to pay for a quick turn around but the wife kind of talked me into it. Looks like she was right again. The views from this area were spectacular. The bar at the top was very nice and there were some... More

Paradise point offers a great spot for both friends and family to come and hangout! With a great menu and array of frozen drinks, you'll fall right into the island flow. Two thumbs up to the new owners of Paradise Point for a job well done! Wonderful for both locals and visitors. Enjoy!

Took a trip to the top with a group of 8 on a Sunday when no ships were in port. Both our hotel concierge & cab driver told us multiple times it was closed, we arrived to find the tramway open & surprisingly offering $5 round trip rides (normally $21). I would suggest visiting in non-ship days as there was... More

Nice bar at top (the only place to get an authentic bushwacker drink (yum)! Nice bird show at top if you time it right and very nice ride and view. Allow at least at hour to visit.
