By DeAnna Taylor
If you are looking for a dope summer getaway, Delta Airlines is here to help. You can fly nonstop from New York’s JFK airport to St. Thomas for only $286.
This deal is valid for travel from July through October. You can search for this deal using Google Flights or a similar travel search engine.
Keep in mind this deal is under Delta’s basic economy so a few restrictions will apply:
- You cannot select your seat prior to travel. A seat will be assigned to you at check-in.
- You cannot upgrade this ticket or make changes to it after it is confirmed.
- You will only be allowed one carry on and one piece of personal luggage. Checked luggage will cost extra.
Other than this, you will be given the same amenities as those in regular economy.
If you are unable to work with these rules, you can upgrade to a regular economy ticket for an additional $50.
Saint Thomas is said to be the cosmopolitan hub of the U.S.V.I. with far more than a day’s worth of activities to participate in. The island is most known for its gorgeous beaches and snorkeling.
Magens Bay is the most popular beach and hosts the largest crowds. If you are looking for a spot with fewer people, try Coki, Sapphire, or Morningstar Beaches.
Looking for something a little more active? Visit Charlotte Amalie, which is known for its streets made of steps. Dozens of step streets cut through nearly all the hills rising from the Charlotte Amalie harbor area; the 99 steps are the most popular. The picturesque stairway has colorful flowers on either side making it an easy choice for a photo.
Finally, to get a fantastic view of the island from above, head to the world famous Mountain Top. Located on the highest point of Saint Thomas, Mountain Top will give stunning panoramic views of Magens Bay, Saint John, and the British Virgin Islands from its observation deck. Mountain Top is best known for its world-famous banana daiquiri.
It is very easy to hop over to one of the other islands as well. You can get there by water taxi, seaplane, or helicopter. Why not make the most of your trip?
Hurry and book your flight before it’s too late.
