Paradise Point St. Thomas Skyride, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

9617 Estate Thomas
Charlotte Amalie , St. Thomas
U.S. Virgin Islands
Tel: 340 774 9809's insider take:

Located just across the street from Havensight, the cruise-ship port area of Charlotte Amalie, this Swiss-built lift is a popular shore excursion for cruise ship passengers. Luckily, the slow ascent in a glassed-in gondola to an overlook atop 700-foot Flag Hill is best appreciated in the late afternoon, when the big boats are weighing anchor and the setting sun bathes the hills surrounding the harbor. At the summit, you're delivered to a collection of tacky souvenir shops, but the views from the restaurant-bar here are spectacular: On a good day, it's possible to spot Vieques and Culebra, the so-called Spanish Virgin Islands, and even Puerto Rico. There are far worse places to nurse a bushwacker (a potent frozen drink made of Bailey's, Kahlúa, rum, Amaretto, vodka, and crème de cacao) while listening to the obligatory reggae soundtrack. The round-trip fare is $21 for adults, $10.50 for children.

Open daily 9 am to 10 pm.
