Named after a male saint, the capital of this island has a very pretty girl’s name, Charlotte Amalie. These lovely titles, along with kingfisher blue water, latte foam sand and picturesquely fading sugar plantations, have attracted almost half the population of the US Virgin Islands to the island and it’s almost perfect natural port and deep harbour.

Cruise ships have replaced the slave and sugar trading ships in the harbour, and the cafes, hotels and lifestyle in the area reflect that.
