Hassel Island, St. Thomas Near Sunset

Hassel Island, St. Thomas Near Sunset

Once connected to mainland St. Thomas, the former peninsula/pirate hideout that is Hassel Island stands today as a beautiful centerpiece of the deepwater harbor that in so many ways defines Charlotte Amalie, capital city of the U.S. Virgin Islands. I particularly love seeing Hassel Island near sunset while walking along the waterfront. The fading sunlight casts shadows along her hills, adding drama and a heightened sense of wonder to this already storied place.

Uncommon Caribbean
is Steve and Patrick Bennett, two brothers from St. Croix changing the way people think about travels to the Caribbean by putting authentic aspects of island life and the region's unique cultural heritage in the spotlight ahead of the glitzy, one-size fits all tourist trap image popularized over the years.
