Bolongo Bay or Sapphire Bay

Looking at condo rental options and have leads on Watergate Villas at Bolongo Bay and one at Sapphire Bay.

For the same money, the unit at Sapphire Bay is smaller.

Please recommend the pros of one or the other if you have been to St Thomas.

We plan to rent a car.

We plan to snorkel all over once we find out where is best.

Will appreciate feedback.

Ha, localsailor! I only moved to Allentown 7 months ago. Originally from Harrisburg. I know some alumni though!

Jr, most definitely rent a car and get out and explore. Visit some of the other beaches, go to St. John, dine out in Red Hook. Many great things to see and do. You picked a great place to vacation!

Jr, definetly rent a car. You have to see the island and go to other beaches....drive up the North end..go to REd Hook. You can even take a car over on the ferry to STJ and explorer some of the beaches there.

So much to do that you'll have to plan a grip back!
