Others include Lindqvist Beach, Brewers Bay, and Sapphire beach. Secret Harbour and Honeymoon Beach are local favorites to watch the sunset paint gorgeous pastels all over the sky.
Enjoy Duty-Free Shopping
Are you trying to stock up on Christmas presents for the family? Enjoy duty-free shopping all over the island. The duty-free allotment is 1600 dollars per person, including children.

At below-market prices and no sales tax, it’s no wonder that many vacationers spend a day or two enjoying the best shops the island has to offer.
Take in the View
