St Thomas is on practically every Caribbean cruise itinerary, and thousands of cruise ship passengers descend daily in winter on Charlotte Amalie, the capital, for the ultimate shopping experience. A beautiful natural harbour, the former Danish town has been a major trading port for centuries and is still popular with visitors seeking duty-free bargains. St Thomas rises out of the sea to a range of hills that runs down its spine. The highest peak, Crown Mountain, is 1,550 ft. On St Peter Mountain, 1,500 ft, is a viewpoint at Mountain Top. There are various scenic roads to drive along, such as Skyline Drive (Route 40), from which both sides of the island can be seen simultaneously, and Mafolie Road (Route 35), which leaves Charlotte Amalie, heading north to cross the Skyline Drive becoming Magens Bay Road, and descends to the beautiful bay.
