There’s no place better than the Caribbean for tax and duty free shopping, and with the luxury brands and jewelry selection available, I’d say there’s no better place than St. Thomas for Shopping in the Caribbean. With so many brands, jewelry stores, and shopping areas throughout the island, it can be time consuming to price shop for the best deals or specific treasures you’re looking for especially if you have antsy kids or friends anxious to hit the beach. Let a local save you the hassle of searching! My guide to St. Thomas shopping tours will help you choose the shopping experience that’s perfect for you and your traveling companions:

  • The Sampling Shopper- You know St. Thomas shopping is tax and duty free, so you definitely want to see what kind of deals you might be able to score. Maybe you’re not a super shopper and want to mix it up with some other St. Thomas activities, or perhaps your family is along and you want to share in the island entertainment. Our Shopping, Sightseeing, and Beach Tour is the perfect full day excursion for sampling St. Thomas’ shopping selection and incredible deals while including some island exploration. Start your day off with a visit to Downtown Charlotte Amalie where you’ll find amazing prices on jewelry, liquor, apparel, and more. After you rack up on savings and merch, you’ll take a ride around the island to behold breathtaking views and snap gorgeous photos. Head to Mountain Top for even more shopping at this mega store located at St. Thomas’ highest elevation point featuring tons of selection on souvenirs, apparel, and jewelry. Grab a cocktail at the massive bar and take a moment to appreciate the vista of Magens Bay and nearby islands. Spend the afternoon rewarding yourself for a day of deal-scoring with some relaxation in the tranquil Caribbean Sea at a top St. Thomas beach. Experience all the best of St. Thomas for you and your whole party with a day of shopping, sightseeing, and beach lounging!
  • The Shopping Scout- You’re pretty serious about shopping, and you’re sure you want to rack up those St. Thomas discounts. But you want to take some time to see the island, and your family isn’t quite as thrilled about all the tax and duty free deals you’re ready to score. You won’t even feel like you’re compromising with a Shopping and Sightseeing Tour that provides ample time for your retail therapy as well as an afternoon of panoramic views, incredible photo ops, and a cocktail or two at the highest point in St. Thomas.
