Of all the beautiful vistas that St. Thomas offers, the view from Drake’s Seat is one of the most popular.
Named after the famous explorer Sir Francis Drake, the attraction overlooks Magens Bay and is frequented by both tourists and locals. Visitors can sit on its stone wall and gaze upon the bay’s turquoise water, the white sand of the beach itself, and outlying islands such as Inner Brass and Hans Lollik. The overlook is generally crowded during the day, especially when cruise ships are docked downtown. If you’re looking for a perfect photo opportunity and some peace and quiet at the same time, Drake’s Seat at sunset is hard to beat.
