A Pirates Life for Me

June 04, 2017

A pit stop is all that is necessary to get a glance at this incredible view. Drake's Seat is one for the books while visiting St. Thomas. If you have ever wondered what a birds eye view would be like from the Caribbean then you absolutely must stop at this look out point. A ten minute drive off the beaten path is all it is to see this incredible view — the best part is that most taxi drivers will take you here with a simple please and thank you. It is said that Sir Francis Drake used this as his place to spot incoming boats and scope out his next victims. Make out like a pirate and imagine yourself sitting sky high anticipating a boat full of treasures for you to keep! A rumor has been told that the pirates life is a life of scallywags and luxury — after spending the afternoon at Drake's Seat you will agree with the latter. 

“This is our third visit to St Thomas and Sugar Bay Resort. The accommodations are updated and well maintained, and the staff goes above and beyond to ensure all guest's needs are met. We look forward to bringing our family here next year.”

“I have stayed at Sugar Bay resort 3 times a total of 5 weeks. The reason I keep going back is I love the quiet slow paced side of the island opposite the airport and cruise ships. The view is breath taking. The weather is perfect.”

“The best part of Sugar Bay Resort is Cora, a member of the wait staff. She completely went above & beyond to take care of us on our trip. Her enthusiasm and smile are a rarity these days in the hospitality industry!”
