The U.S. Virgin Islands has so many locations that are perfect for a destination wedding. If you are planning to get married on Saint Thomas in 2019 here are a few of the top venues to consider having your ceremony.
Brewers Bay Beach was my favorite beach for the year of 2018. I fell in love with Brewers Beach for its open tranquil feeling: I like the large layout of this location with the mountains in the background. It has a beautiful tree line and old stone ruins that are picturesque.
Magens Bay Beach is the most popular beach on St. Thomas. It is also the largest, so you can normally find an area that works for your wedding without too many folks around. This location does require a permit for a wedding and an entrance fee.
Sapphire Beach is lovely not only for the beach area, but it has a long peninsula called Pretty Klip Point with one of the most epic backdrops. This beach was extremely crowded the last time I was here mid-day when there were a lot of cruise ships in port. It was easy to work around people but might be difficult if you have a large wedding setup midday.
Lindquist Beach is one of the prettiest beaches on St. Thomas. It's located on the east side of the island and has some of the clearest water and powdery white soft sand that you will ever see. This beach also requires a permit and an entrance fee.
Secret Harbour Beach Resort has one of the perfect locations on the island for a wedding. The resort is set RIGHT ON THE BEACH, it's so close you don't need shoes. It also has the Sunset Grill Restaurant right there for your reception. Everything about this location is stress-free and relaxing, which is exactly what a beach wedding should be.
There are so many amazing villas and private houses listed on AIRBNB that offer the option to have a wedding on property. Some of the most popular locations are:
Villa Botanica is a unique venue located on Crown Mountain in a historic plantation estate with some of the most beautiful tropical gardens you will ever see. I believe that it can host some of the largest groups for a wedding reception on the island.
Boats—who doesn’t love being on the water or sailing into the sunset? There are so many charter boat options here for all budgets and occasions from a luxury motor yacht to an old fashioned sailboat you should definitely get out on our beautiful Virgin Islands waters. There are boats large enough to host your entire group for the wedding and reception or a welcome party or something smaller and more romantic for just the two of you.
I'm sure there are a ton of other venues that are perfect for an island wedding on Saint Thomas that I haven't listed. I’m also positive no matter where you have your destination wedding that it will be amazing and magical. Please feel free to comment below where you are planning your wedding.
