Coral World: St. Thomas’ Must-Visit Attraction

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 30, 2017

There are mountaintop bars, duty free shops and some of the Caribbean’s greatest beaches.

But if you’re looking for one must-visit attraction in St. Thomas, it’s this: Coral World Ocean Park, the island’s leading eco-tourism destination.

The park is a gateway to the Virgin Islands’ underwater world, from outdoor marine pools and nature trails to stingrays and sharks.

It’s also a place to experience SNUBA, surface-supplied diving that makes the feeling of diving accessible to just about anybody.

For years, Coral World has been at the center of the island’s conservation efforts, from a new coral restoration project replanting depleted reef sites to a major shark tagging research project.

They’re all reasons why we Coral World should be at the top of your list in St. Thomas.
