Why Go

The capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands, this city is named for the queen-consort of Denmark's King Christian V. The main port of cruise ships, Charlotte Amalie the city is today the queen of holiday-makers, and a shopping mecca. Those who look a little deeper, however, will find some historic sites of interest which hint at the plantations and pirates which once populated the island. Fort Christian, built by the Danes, is one such attraction, or you can climb the 99 steps (actually 103 steps) to reach the road to Blackbeard's Castle.

Charlotte Amalie has to be one of the most amazing places I have travelled to. It is full of culture and beautiful scenery. My family and I took a road trip into the mountains and I was able to snap this picture of the land. It is gorgeous and the people are so welcoming. Definitely get involved with the culture and embrace it because it is one of the most breathtaking Caribbean islands I have ever been to.

The harbor is where the cruise ships dock. One morning there were six ships in the harbor. It's duty-free and many stores offer free liquor while you shop. Many diamond stores. Also where the water taxi lets off it's set up kind of like a flea market or Swapmeet type venue

If you are shopping addicted this is the right place where to spend half a day. In the town centre there are many jewleries and shops selling electronic devices. Closest to the port you can find a luxury shopping village. It is nice making a walk along the sea.
