Mountain Top, St Thomas, US Virgin Islands

The basics

Mountain Top offers one of the largest duty free shops under one roof in the Caribbean. Find everything from clothing and jewelry to souvenirs and alcohol. Mountain Top is also said to be the birthplace of the banana daiquiri. Try one for yourself at the bar located inside the shop. The highlight for many visitors is the view from their observation deck, where you can see over a dozen islands and cays, including the British Virgin Islands.

Mountain Top is featured on just about every sightseeing tour of St. Thomas. Depending on your interests, combine a stop here with some time on the beach or in the water, shopping in Charlotte Amalie, or visiting historical sites such as Blackbeard’s Castle. Opt for a private tour to fully customize your itinerary.

Vi Top Taxi & Tours USVI-Scenic Island Tour ,St. Thomas
On our stop at St. Thomas we were escorted on our tour by Nami. He was very knowledgeable about his points of interest. From the beaches and city area to the top of a mountain and back. There were stops to take pictures of the beautiful scenery and also to purchases from local establishments. Great personality!

St. Thomas Half-Day Mountain Top Tour and Beach Hopping
We had an exciting day touring St. Thomas, then Megan’s Bay Beach and another beach of our choosing. Our driver stopped at scenic overlooks and local markets for us. My hubby is mad at himself for not getting a T-shirt he liked from the first stop. I say if you see something you like, get it! We has a glorious time at the beach, and met some very nice people. We are so glad to be rid of the lock-downs, if not the mask silliness, which is NOT the fault of people here on the island, but their government.
