With its overload of jewelry stores, sea-kissed shores and heart-palpitating mountain tops, the U.S. Virgin Islands is all around the love story scene. The Virgin Islands have a way of bringing a connection to its obligation climax, although you may go there with no ideas of popping the big question. From a secluded seashore or sky high perch to a night kayak paddle or a chapel made of ice, the possibilities are impossible to say “no” to.
Among the Caribbean’s most famous destinations, St. Thomas combines all that is intimate about the region, tempering resort and shopping sophistication with blissful shores and local colour.
Jewelry shop after jewelry store line downtown Charlotte Amalie’s Main Street – all selling duty free goods, meaning huge savings. Pop the question, then pick out wedding and engagement rings. Several of the stores sell loose diamonds, so you could select the jewel and pair it with the setting of your choice. Alpha Jewelers is one such; the cozy shop sells a line of coloured diamonds knows as “Chocolate Covered Cherry.”
Here is the right spot to escape press and the tropical heat of humanity. Don deluxe parkas and leggings. Do a complimentary opportunity of local Cruzan Rum in the flavor of your choice, then steer your spouse-to-be to the ice chapel for a proposition of a very long time through the dramatically lit ice sculptures.
St. Thomas’ peaks provide splendid views of sea, tropical greenery and bustling harbors day and night. Jump into a Skyride tram near port and pop the question in your way up to scenic Paradise Point following the cruise ship crowds have left. Or plan dinner at Mafolie Restaurant for a sparkly view, like bling in the case of a jeweler, to bill the mood.
Another romantic nighttime chance, night kayaking at Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort takes you out into bay waters aboard clear-bottomed tandem kayaks with LED lights shining downward to see giant fish and sea turtles. Paddle off to a quiet cove to ask for that hand in marriage.
Its delightful towns, historic sites and award winning shores capture lovers.
Most of its seashores are coved with plenty of seclusion, but what could possibly be more intimate than Honeymoon Beach, a short hike from the ferry piers and principal town of Cruz Bay? Or snorkel the trail at Trunk Bay Beach and plan a submerged “will you marry what?”
St. John’s mountaintops, also, cry drama and love story. For a sky-high proposal with a view that is wowing, attempt Chateau Bordeaux for lunch. Or advance your case with all the romanticism of ages previous at Annaberg Plantation ruins or more hidden Catherineberg Ruins, a perfect area for picnicking a deux.
In keeping with the Virgin Islands’ sailing standing that is acute, consider staging the affair aboard a sunset catamaran cruise with Calypso Charters.
From shores to rain forest, under-sung St. Croix has beauty, history and amorous resorts and eateries to recommend it to couples on the verge of betrothal.
Find Isaac Bay’s Beach on the East End, in the event you don’t mind a little climb downward for the benefit of gorgeous, secluded beach. Sweep your loved one off impossibly blue Caribbean water and her or his feet at this sweep of powdery sand. Nearby Point Udall, the easternmost point in the U.S., dazzles with views and steep drops, particularly at sunset. All you have to do is profess your forever love as you gaze into the boundless that is blue.
Or let history carry the minute with a gallant proposition in Fort Christiansvaern (the dungeon, maybe?) or among the tropical blossoms, riotous greenery and historic sugar plantation ruins of St. George Village Botanical Gardens.
Take to the crazy tangle of rain forest lushness on horseback with Paul and Jill’s Equestrian Stables for an adventurous sort of proposition. Something more calm? Hit one of main town the great eateries in historic digs for the correct setting in Christiansted. Cosy bistro Savant is only the place, with music and well-crafted fusion cuisine to clinch the deal.
