BLACKBEARD CASTLE is on the St. Thomas Islands and has now been converted into a resort. It is located on a high altitude and used to be a strong place for combat and defense. It has a water front in front of it with excellent views.
It feels very powerful and beautiful.
The Blackbeard Castle without Blackbeard In a comfortable sun, I rode my bicycle to the Blackbeard Castle on the mountain. During the game, the first thing that caught my eye was the pirate raising his sword in a domineering posture. Although it was only iron, I still felt the majesty of the black beard pirate, his eyes firmly fixed in the direction of the sea. I heard from the tour group I came with that this castle is actually a Danish lookout stone tower. After seeing its appearance, it is indeed more like a stone tower. The castle is entirely made up of stones. It is dark inside and looks very old. It is reminiscent of the pirate story that happened in the past. There is a rotating staircase at the foot and it is safe with handrails. Climbing to the top of the tower, you can look at the blue waters and undulating hillsides in the distance, which is very interesting. Going further inside, there are beautiful gardens. Not only are there flowers that I can't name, but also tall statues that recreate the life of the pirates. Of course, there are indispensable memorial shops nearby, some of which are pirate-related decorations, cool and very personal. There are also hotels around, decorated in a style that makes people live on a pirate ship. It is recommended that you play for about 2 hours, and its opening time is relatively short. Warm Reminder Be optimistic about the route of the map, because it is not easy to find. Wear comfortable shoes, because you have to climb mountains and wooden ladders.
I am a person who likes castles very much. Every time I go to a country, I always check if there are any old castles there. If there are, I will definitely go and take a look. On Thomas Island, I found a very old castle called Blackbeard's Castle. This is a very old castle with a very long history. It seems to have been built in the Middle Ages and has a history of more than 1,000 years. I came to Blackbeard's Castle on the first day of arriving on St. Thomas. This castle is one of the few castles on St. Thomas. I rented a car. It took about half an hour from the hotel to the castle. , Very close, and the scenery along the way is particularly beautiful! Before entering the castle, there will be staff members who will lead us to watch the introduction about the history of the castle, but the castle is only open to part of the area, most of the area is under maintenance, which is a pity, but these open areas are very beautiful , Standing on the tower of the castle, you can see the entire island scenery. It is really beautiful, but I suggest you call before you go, because this tower is not often open. Address: 1001 Blackbeard's Hill, Charlotte Amalie 00802, St. Thomas Opening hours: 10:00-16:00 Tickets: RMB 30
