Green Cay Saint Thomas
The scattered rocks and sudsy shallows that trail from shore to Green Cay Saint Thomas portend a future union. Maybe. Projected sea level rise over the coming years will certainly have its say. Whether or not a tombolo of the style and type we’ve marveled at in Dominica and Martinique ever materializes here, though, Green Cay is still well worth a visit.
The tiny, uninhabited islet rests in Frenchman Bay, a secluded and blessedly underdeveloped slice of STT’s south shore. Consistent with its surroundings, there really isn’t much to St. Thomas’ Green Cay. Rock and scrub brush comprise the dominant features. A teeny speck of white sand beach dots its western edge. In this way, Green Cay Saint Thomas would appear rather uninviting to most.
This, of course, makes it all the more appealing to us.
Patrick and I didn’t get much closer than the vantage point pictured above when we visited in 2018. Ever since, though, my mind has been filled with dreams of trekking/swimming out to Green Cay.
Just imagine the undersea thrills that lay hidden beneath her secluded surrounding seas?!
Oh yeah, this islet-hopping adventure is high on my must-do list next time I’m in STT.
