While this is a typical tourist spot it is well worth whatever crowds might be there. First of all the view from the back deck is unbeatable and is a must see for anyone visiting St Thomas. Second, the jewelry selection is actually pretty good,...More

Great views to get an orientation to the island. Must have banana daiquiris! Primarily a tourist vista point.

I went here and the view is spectacular. Literally out of a post card. The store is very well priced. If you rented a car the drive is pretty fun also.

A bit of a tourist trap, parking is not easy, however the views make up for the trouble. There is no entrance charge, it is basically a supermarket selling tourist stuff. Plenty of choice. Some of the staff need to work on their smiles

We rode the sky view to the top. Spectacular views made the cramped, hot ride up, worth it. It was a bit scary trying to get on, as it doesn’t stop and the guy wanted 8 guests per car. Didn’t go to the bar, several...More

I would say 15-30 min depending on if you get a drink or do some shopping. Views are amazing so could spend 15 min just doing that.
