In this issue of the Coconut Post, the advantages to off-season island travel are in the spotlight.
With kids back in school, most families are back home until the holidays. That means September is a perfect time for couples or groups of friends with flexible work schedules — as well as retirees — to travel and save. In addition to off-season rates, summer crowds are gone.
With that in mind, how about getting away to St. Thomas for a long weekend, a week, or more? At Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas, you are invited to reserve a one or two-bedroom villa or studio suite. Each unit includes a fully appointed kitchenette with mini-fridge, microwave, double burners, coffee maker and blender. What a perfect setup for relaxing at your own pace.
The resort has two large pools, outdoor lounge areas, a jacuzzi, lighted tennis courts, video gaming, an on-premise restaurant and coffee shop, too. In other words, there are plenty of places to relax and to socialize. Plus, world-famous Magens Bay Beach is just a half mile away.
Typically in September, all beaches are quieter, yet every bit as beautiful as during the height of high season.
Because the islands are less busy, some bars and restaurants on St. Thomas and nearby St. John choose September to close for vacation. Happily, a number of popular eateries maintain business as usual to serve locals and visitors alike.
One of the newest and most appealing St. Thomas destinations to enjoy in September is SeaGrape Restaurant.
Located in a historic waterfront building, SeaGrape is a spacious and inviting enterprise offering Happy Hour and dinner nightly, as well as Sunday brunch.
Another newly opened business savvy shoppers will want to experience is Calypso Trading Co. Located in Buccaneer Mall directly across from Havensight, this attractive retail shop features name-brand casual wear for men and women as well as footwear and accessories.
Whether you are shopping and dining on St. Thomas in September for a day, a week or the entire month, enjoy every “Off-Season Sweet” moment.
