|About these ratings|
One of the best views of the Charlotte Amalie harbor, Water Island and Puerto Rico awaits you atop Paradise Point, an overlook that's coupled with an on-site restaurant and gift shop. Vacationers are wowed by the spectacular panorama, but are less than impressed by the average food and the overpriced souvenirs.
Here's an insider trick: Find a taxi or rent a car and drive yourself to the top of Paradise Point. Though there is a skyride tram that will take you to this peak in Charlotte Amalie, travelers consistently label it a rip-off. Driving the road up will ensure the same views for far cheaper. For the most ambiance, visit around sunset.
You can enjoy the view at Paradise Point at any time, but the skyride hours vary depending on day of the week and whether there is a cruise ship in port. The bar and restaurant have fluctuating hours on a bi-weekly schedule. Visit the tram's website for pricing and package information.
