First Time...Leaving Saturday :) !

My husband and I have traveled to various islands, however this will be our first trip to the USVI's. Staying on Sapphire Beach for 9 days.

Arranged for r/t airport transfer with co. that includes stop at a store.

Taking the day sail to St. John for snorkeling. BVI day trip. Sunset dinner sail.

I enjoy wine. Should I bring a decent boxed wine (for convenience) or is it easy to find at the store and not twice the price? What kind of beer can we find at the store?

Any suggestions on where to eat, things to see, etc. We will not be renting a car. We want to mix chill time with seeing the area.

Thanks for the help.

STTResident - we stopped in at MM to buy a sandwich last week (during our monthlySTT CUL, Home Depot etc runs)as we had just missed the car ferry back to STJ - hubby went in and when he came back out he said it looks like they won't be in business much longer - empty shelves, no one at the meat counter, empty coolers etc - such a shame but hopefully they were just waiting on a container after the holiday rush.


ps: the sandwich was BAD :(

Hello Audthang !

I hope you had a great trip to STT. I'm going in May and wonder how was your experience with Mr. Lettsome? Were his prices reasonable?

Thank you,
