Head to Drake’s Seat for the best view on St. Thomas
Overlooking the pristine Magens Bay on an innocuous bend of the road is one of the best views on St. Thomas, Drake’s Seat. The bench is named after the British privateer Sir Francis Drake, who is said to have used the bay as an anchorage point for his ships and may have climbed to this vantage point as a way to identify ships to later plunder. Today it’s just a great place to enjoy the amazing views of the bay and surrounding islands.
