Duty-free Capital of the World

One of the most visited cruise ship destinations in the Caribbean, the town of Charlotte Amalie is known around the world for its duty-free jewelry, perfume, and liquor shops.

And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Magens Bay, kick back and relax at Coki Point Beach, look for gifts at Havensight Mall, and see what you can catch with Simplicity Charters.
