  • Jewelry and Perfume only

    Charlotte Amalie is supposed to be known for excellent tax free shopping. Probably, but we didn't enjoy shopping in town there as the shops are basically limited to jewelry and perfume. Some souvenir shops and alcohol shops are there too, but once you're in St. Thomas, it is beter to spend that time touring around the beautiful island and enjoy the...

  • Everything You're Looking For in One...

    Havensight Mall is a great place to shop, and it's especially close for cruise ship passengers but it draws people from other parts of the island as well. The "Mall" is really a set of one-story buildings situated near the East side of Charlotte Amalie Harbor. All the stores are bright and airy, the buildings have Spanish-tiled roofs, and there are...

  • Shopping in Charlotte Amalie

    If you like to shop, you'll notice that when you visit some of the them, you find there are quite a few "chain" stores and shopping on St. Thomas was probably where it all started. Of course, there are many "independent" shops, but the more you travel around the Caribbean islands, the more you'll find the recognizable names of stores like Diamonds...

    more
  • Liquor

    Particularly if you are on a cruise, the best prices for liquor are at either of two non-tourist stores, both of which are walkable from the cruise ship dock (I've done it, I know).There is a Pueblo super market and a little further down the road there is a K-Mart, which also has beach supplies, some T-shirts and other souvenirs. Both places have...

  • 'Shop Til you Drop' Central!

    No one word describes Charlotte Amalie as well as SHOPPING. It is a duty free area and there is no sales tax so many luxury items are bargains compared to the continental U.S.Shopping here falls into 3 main categories: Jewelery, Perfumes, and Liquor, and to a lesser extent electronics. (see my other shopping tip for liquor). It is important to...

  • They do have a K-Mart here

    Can you believe it?! In the middle of the Caribbean they actually have this. I was rather shocked the first time. If your in need of supplies or something and you feel you probably won't be able to get them, get them at K-Mart. It's located about a 15 minute walk from the cruise shp pier.

  • Cheapest liquor in the world :-) (that i...

    Right where the cruise ships dump you off.... When in St. Thomas we were totally shocked by how inexpensive liquor was. To be more specific, a liter bottle of Bacardi, Absolut etc. was around $6.00 each. Depends on how much your home bar needs restocked. ;-)

    There are a many places to shop duty free in St. Thomas. I splurged on a Breitling Crosswind at Little Switzerland. I didn't worry about declaring duty on the watch when I flew back to the states, the customs agents seemed more concerned with the huge amount of liquor I was taking home. Personal consumption of course!! Jewls, watches, booze in...

  • Amazing Clothing

    A unique concept of having a store that only sells the basics. Black and white clothing, how can you go wrong? I have never found a apir of pants that fit so well. I'm disappointed there's not more of these shops around. Clearance prices are great and the regualr price is a little expensive (for me) but well worth the quality. I'd pay full price...
