Visited this spot while on a sightseeing/beach tour. The views from this point are absolutely incredible!! The gift shop has tons of beautiful souvenir items that I found to be reasonably priced. They have a bar inside the building as well that was making banana daiquiris and selling other drinks and snacks.

Mountain Top had unobstructed views of beautiful Magens Bay Beach, Saint John, and some of the British Virgin Islands. There was also a gift shop which had the world famous banana daiquiri. My daiquiri came with a cup to take home for about fifteen dollars ($15.00). The line to get a daiquiri was very long and I felt that the gift shop was short staffed.

Our visit was 1 May 2022. We took the scenic route (through Red Hook) to get here and that route had a stop off point to take some beautiful views and of Megan Bay. And when they say they are on the mountain top, they mean it. I think our phone told us we were 1500 some feet above sea level. The store grounds were nice so you can take pictures with some of the statues. The store was clean, organized and staff pleasant. Bar in back of store if you are not the driver. We were able to take more beautiful photos on their overlook point and get some more interesting information. The lookout point allowed us to view all the islands in that area even with the fog in the distance. We enjoyed our time and brought some gifts. We did end up coming down on the shorter distance side right into Charlotte Amalie downtown. If you get the chance, please stop up for a visit.

Best place for souvenirs on St Thomas! I was having a hard time trying to find well priced souvenirs that I could take back home for my children and family. I was so relieved when we arrived at Mountain Top! To say they have a massive assortment of options is an understatement! We found awesome gifts at reasonable prices. To top it off, they have the BEST view of Magens Bay! We stopped at Drakes Seat the day before after visiting the beach itself. The view from Mountain Top could not be beat!

Gorgeous views of the bay from the highest mountain on St. Thomas. Tons of souvenirs. Tons. We could see how it would get quite crowded. Bus loads of people come here at a time. Could get crowded. We went on our own pretty early in the day. You may even see a glimpse of a rainbow.

We drove to this location high on St Thomas after reading it was the original home of the banana daiquiri. We were anticipating and looking forward to an authentic Caribbean style bar. What this is is an absolutely gigantic tee shirt shop with a bar (that has no seats) at the back of the store where you can order an extremely forgettable drink in a plastic cup. All I could think was that this is a place that cruise ships offer paid excursions to for inexperienced travelers. Oh and there are animatronic talking pirates out front too which makes the experience feel even more like some sad tee shirt store on International Drive in Orlando.

Taking a bus tour of St. Thomas brings you ultimately to Mountain Top which is a very large Gift Shop but also the veranda porch in the rear allows you to see the side of the island that is not a part of the city itself. The tour guide 'Hoggie" was great in going along out on the porch and explaining the homes that can be seen below on the mountain where famous persons have stayed and owned., from Movie stars to Vice-Presidents. The trip UP the Mountain is one that you would not want to drive yourself, as negotiating the curves and switchbacks keeps your eyes on the road and not able to enjoy the views. The trip up and the store is worth your time.

Mountain Top offers breathtaking views of Megen’s Bay, the Northern coast, St. John’s, and the British Virgin Islands. What’s not to love in spending time looking at these amazing pieces of art of nature. Pictures do not even come close to the brilliance of what you will experience. The Banana Daiquiri’s are without a doubt the best you’ll ever taste. No where else on St. Thomas did anyone serve such a tasteful pleasure. You will love this place!

Mountain Top has a great place to view the surrounding islands. The souvenir shop was very nice. We would have bought more if we had realized that the prices on the items were retail and the actual price charged was a lot less. We did not know this until we got to the cash register. Be sure to check out the bar and the frozen banana daiquiri’s!

Epic views and a massive selection of souvenirs at very reasonable prices (and no, I don't work there!). Seeing reasonable prices helped my overall impression and desire to look at everything. The staff could have been friendlier or could have acknowledged our presence in some way, but after a few days on this island you get used to their standoffishness, as the beauty of the island far surpasses that annoyance.
