Step onto the Top of the Mountain

September 04, 2017

Not everything is as it appears. Though you may believe that the best view of the island is the one where your toes can hide in the sand, some may argue that it is high above the clouds grasping the railing while peeking over the edge of the cliffs, from 1,500 feet above the sea. Opening their doors in 1953, Top Mountain quickly became a staple for shopaholics and thrill seekers visiting the Virgin Islands.

From the tippy top of our sweet little island you can see the breathtaking views of the bright blue water and lush greenery all across the Caribbean. It has also been whispered that Top Mountain carries the best duty free items of anywhere that kisses the Atlantic Ocean. Our iconic banana daiquiri should bring you the liquid courage you need to take that little step out onto the observation deck — sip, sip, step and you’ll be looking like a local in no time!

“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!”

“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.”
