Trip Report St. Thomas is dangerous

Jump to last reply

My husband was held up at gunpoint by a couple young kids near Coki Beach, actually on Point Pleasant. In broad day light. Hotel security responded in about 15 min, the police took about 25 min. Neither took the incident seriously. The cop spoke only to the security officer and completely ignored my husband. They seemed to be irritated that we were wasting their time. {OK, so they pulled a gun on you, you're OK, I'm sure they weren't going to shoot you. Go on your way. This is the way it is around here.) They refused to provide copies of their "reports" . Coki Beach is crawling with strung out locals. St. Thomas (at least the East End) is completely run down. It is not a safe place. And the government is doing nothing to change it. I feel sorry for the people who own property here, this place is a war zone. Half the buildings are not even occupied. Entire hotels/complexes are boarded up. If you come here, travel in groups and watch your back. However, I wouldn't bother.
