Premise
“We recommend going on a true sail with Captain Carl of the Teroro II. (Other outfits in Christiansted say they are on a catamaran, but put too many people on the boat for a good time, and only motor out without sailing). Find Captain Carl online!”

“On the Boardwalk in Christiansted. Can’t beat the view of the seaplanes taking off and the boats in the harbor. Food is mainly pub food for lunch (The fish tacos are good) with nicer offerings for dinner. They have a bar menu too.”

American Restaurant
“A 2 minute walk away from Paradise Found, Blue Water Terrance serves as a great cafe in the morning and turns into an excellent dining location in the evenings.”

Restaurant
“Try their Mac and cheese as a sharing starter or side dish but definitely save space for rum cake- it is the best on island. So buttery, rich and good! They also have a great Saturday a la carte brunch. Very interesting use of local ingredients. We always make reservations, because it is quite small. They have a great cocktail menu too, with epic specials.”
