There are many wonderful places to enjoy sunset in St. Thomas. Brewers Bay is one of my favorites, though not just because of the view. The beach is located at the west end of St. Thomas just beyond the airport and the University of the Virgin Islands. The spot lends itself to divine sunsets over a collection of smaller islets trailing west toward Puerto Rico. It’s stunning, really, but the real attraction here for me is the local vibe. At the back of the beach behind a line of seagrape trees, a handful of food trucks do a brisk trade in local fare – empanadas, Johnny Cakes, Malta India. Kids splash and laugh in the calm water as the sun sneaks away, dominoes are slammed a few yards away, soca blares from food trucks; the entire scene a sublime representation of the real St. Thomas.
