Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, capital city of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. The picturesque harbor is dotted with sailboats. Charlotte Amalie is a shoppers paradise. Literally hundreds of little shops grace the downtown area. Bargains galore can be found here including jewelry, linens, china, crystal, clothing, watches and perfumes. One of the more unique and best places we found to shop was Vendor's Plaza. We found very good prices on souveniers of all types, especially locally made items, T-shirts, tropical print shirts, skirts, etc. There are two cruise ship docks at Charlotte Amalie. Havensight Shopping Center, located at the main cruise ship dock, houses over 50 shops. There is a free shuttle you can take to tour this area. The main shopping at Charlotte Amalie where the greatest density of stores is located is along the harbor. This area is known as Dronningens Cade or Main Street. Just parallel to Main Street is Back Street and the Waterfront. In between these main strips are side streets and alleys filled with literally dozens and dozens of shops. The U.S. government allows U.S. citizens $1,200 worth of duty-free items per person. Omni Linens is one place where we picked up absolutely beautiful handmade table cloths, colorful place mats and other unique items. We had an absolutely fantastic time here and highly recommend this port of call.
