Top 10 St. Thomas Island Resorts: Bluebeard's Beach Club
In a crop of emerald green palm treetops, a rustic red roof peeks out and then gives way to 15 acres of private Caribbean beachfront property with white sand and aquamarine lounge chairs to match the Caribbean Sea in the resort’s back-yard. Impressed? We were!
Bluebeard’s Beach Club lets you strike a balance between being a beach bum and an active islander. You never have to leave the acres of sand, intensely blue water or the hammock from which you stare up at the equally intensely-blue sky. Or, you can get up and play a game of shuffleboard, ride the wind parasailing or challenge your family and friends to a game of water or sand volleyball. Whichever you choose, Bluebeard encourages both.
The contrast of relaxation and activity continues inside the resort as well. Sit at the swim-up bar in the outdoor free form pool or play video games and billiards on site. But what we recommend for everyone is a Bluebeard suite or condo, accented with coral and sand colors and a gorgeous view of the St. Thomas coastline from the balcony.
