Saint Thomas is one of the US Virgin Islands (USVI) in Caribbean. Together with Saint John and Water Island, it forms a county and district of the USVI (unincorporated USA territory). On the isle is the territorial capital city and port Charlotte Amalie. The island's population is around 52,000, or about 49% of USVI's total.
The USVI is the only place under USA jurisdiction where the rule of road is to drive on the left. It was inherited from what was then-current Danish practice at the time of American acquisition in 1917. Because Saint Thomas is a United States' territory, most cars are imported from mainland US and therefore the steering column is placed on the left side of the vehicles.
The island of Saint Thomas has many regular taxis and open-air, covered trucks named "safaris" with bench seats which usually operate only between high-traffic points: cruise-ship terminals at Crown Bay and Havensight and downtown Charlotte Amalie. However, most cruise ships to St Thomas USVI dock at the Charlotte Amalie port.
All USVI beaches (including on St Thomas) are public and free of charge (no entry fees required). The most popular among tourists are Lindquist Beach and Emerald Beach.
Highlights: Charlotte Amalie, Shopping, Magens Bay
