· Proximity to Red Hook – Minutes down the road from Cowpet East is Red Hook with its fabulous restaurants, a great grocery store, a video store, a full-service medical practice, clothing stores, a drug store and a hardware store.
· Ferry to St. John & the BVI – Take a break from routine, and hop the 10-minute ferry to St. John and enjoy a quaint version of island life. The views on the ride over will take your breath away. And if you really want to mix it up, grab a ferry to the British Virgin Islands!
· Ritz Carlton and St. Thomas Yacht Club – The Ritz borders CBE so you have great snorkeling at your fingertips. And since beaches in the VI are public, you’re welcome to use the Ritz beach. Use their restaurants too – dine in elegant style or enjoy a casual but tasty meal at the bar. On the other side of Cowpet East, just beyond Cowpet Bay West, is the St. Thomas Yacht Club – featuring lunch most days, dinner two days, and collegiality every day! Casual, friendly, and you don’t have to own a boat to belong.
· Beachfront Restaurants – If you want something casual you can enjoy some great brick oven pizzas, or if you’d like something a bit more formal, there’s an upscale seafood restaurant, both at the bottom of the stairway from Cowpet East. And both are literally on the beach. True Caribbean living.
