French Fishing Boats

Are You Fluent in French(town)?

June 06, 2018

St. Thomas is a culturally diverse island. People from all over the world travel here, and in the 1800’s, people from all over the world began to settle here too. One of the most interesting areas on the island is a little tiny town stuck in time, known to islanders at Frenchtown. Between 1800-1900, a group of people from St. Barthelemy from the French Caribbean decided to migrate to St. Thomas. Although they also lived on an island, their ways of life were slightly different — and even though they have adapted in some ways, many of their French customs have still stuck with them even after all of these years. Stop by this quaint little area of St. Thomas to see the different style of boats, bustling fish markets, and a beautiful church by the name of St. Ann’s Catholic Church. Visiting Frenchtown is a fun way to take a step back in time while still playing in St. Thomas.

“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.”
