HISTORY OF ST. THOMAS
Christopher Columbus has been credited with “discovering” Saint Thomas during his second voyage to the New World in 1493. The island, however, was left unguarded by Spain and became a haven for pirates.
Small independent settlements dotted the island for centuries before a permanent town was established. Later the Dutch arrived, followed by Danish settlers. The island is a showcase with stunning examples of Danish Colonial architecture along with the vibrant markets and cultural sites of the island’s indigenous West Indian population.
Today, the white sandy beaches, colorful culture and exotic natural beauty of Saint Thomas attract visitors from across the globe. From world-class shopping and fine dining, to an endless variety of exciting outdoor adventures including kayaking, scuba diving, sailing, sport-fishing and more.
The paradise of Saint Thomas offers the perfect Caribbean vacation spot for families, romantic getaways and celebrating life’s most important occasions.
THE ALLURE OF ST. JOHN USVI
In addition to ample on-site opportunities for a fun and relaxing Saint Thomas vacation, Secret Harbour offers convenient access to St. Thomas’ sister island of St John USVI. Ferries depart from Red Hook (five minutes from the resort).
Our knowledgeable concierge team is available to help guide your Virgin Island explorations, including suggested itineraries, schedules for the ferry to St. John and transportation options.
PASSENGER FERRY TO THE US VIRGIN ISLAND OF ST. JOHN
Guests wishing to explore the neighboring island of St. John can hop on the ferry (see link to schedule above) from Red Hook located just one mile from the resort ($5 each way), and reach Cruz Bay on St. John in approximately 20 minutes.

THE ANNABERG RUINS
In its heyday, the Annaberg Plantation produced sugar, molasses and rum. Now, if you swing by this ruined (but partially restored) plantation and mill, you can learn about sugar production in the 18th and 19th centuries.
And depending on the day, participate in a demonstration on basket weaving or bread baking. Down the hill from Annaberg is Leinster Bay, a perfect spot for some impromptu beachcombing.
The Annaberg Historic District, which includes the plantation, is run by the Virgin Islands National Park service. The Cruz Bay Visitor Center is open from 8 am to 4:30 pm, and rangers lead tours throughout the day.
TRUNK BAY & VIRGIN ISLANDS NATIONAL PARK
Trunk Bay is considered one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Known for its soft white sands and aquamarine waters, Trunk Bay is protected by the Virgin Islands National Park and features the Underwater Trail, a snorkeling path of coral and fish with underwater plaques that guide you along the way.
Trunk Bay’s water is calm enough for even young or inexperienced snorkelers. Admission to Trunk Bay is $4 per person and the park closes every day at 4 pm.
