Summer months in the Caribbean used to be considered “off-season.” How things have changed! These days, savvy travelers appreciate the fun-filled advantages of vacationing in paradise, no matter the time of year.
Even on the sunniest days in June, you can count on cooling trade winds to keep you comfy while exploring the endless intrigues of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Whatever the weather, you’ll find plenty of “Fun-Shine” to brighten the way. In other words, night or day in the tropics, the ‘fun’ is always shining.
These days, keeping costs down is on just about every traveler’s mind. Although inflation trackers report hotel accommodation prices have increased by nearly 30-percent nationwide, at Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas room rates remain the same — including still-in-place “off-season” rates. Best of all, the resort is continually upgrading rooms and adding new services while lovingly maintaining the appeal of lush grounds overlooking breathtakingly beautiful Magens Bay.
Just recently, Flamboyan opened the Coconut Post Office. Named after this monthly online publication, the all-new facility is a friendly place to pick up complimentary V.I. travel magazines and informative brochures highlighting places to go and things to do in the V.I.
While there, you might meet staff members of the Coconut Post who will be glad to answer questions and share “insider” details on upcoming events. Additionally, the office is home to the resort’s complimentary Lending Library — another handy convenience.
In this issue of Coconut Post, tasteful dining experiences are showcased at Amalia Cafe in Palm Passage. What a unique place to enjoy lunch or dinner!
Another safe bet for fun is a day trip to St. John where shopping at Mongoose Junction will take you to an entirely new level of tropical intrigues.
And while you are on St. John, when it comes to gaming fun, Parrot Club in Wharfside Village is THE place to be.
One thing’s for sure; wherever you go this summer in the Virgin Islands, you’ll get the chance to enjoy plenty of “Fun-Shine.” Enjoy!
