The legendary, family-owned Bolongo Bay is a no-stress hideaway just a few minutes drive outside of busy Charlotte Amalie. When the point of your Caribbean vacation is to just chill out over cocktails and lounge on the beach, this family run resort is the place to be. Rooms are right on the sand and steps from the shore, and the dining at the poolside Iggie’s restaurant makes the all-inclusive package well worthwhile. No visit is complete without a sunset cruise on the Heavenly Days catamaran and taking part in the weekly treasure hunt for sunken rum bottles.
