Taste the Flavors of St. Thomas

September 03, 2018

St. Thomas is known for its vibrant tropical colors, captivating Caribbean vibes, and delectable island flavors. A must-do while you are visiting St. Thomas is to sample all of the unique, exotic fruits that cover our island. Most of the fruits on our island come from trees and are a staple in our diet. Some of the more well-known fruits are mangos, coconuts, and bananas, but if you wanted to try something a little more local, we would suggest you try soursop, genip, tamarind, and sea grapes. All of these tropical fruits can be found around the island, from our beaches to our forests, and are all completely edible and amazing. Take a walking tour around St. Thomas and see if you can identify the different fruits that you see. If you come across some of these exotic Caribbean fruits, we highly suggest that you partake in an island-style taste test.

“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.”
