61 Magens Bay From Drake’s Seat on the Northside, Saint Thomas

Sir Francis Drake was a 16th century sea captain and the first Englishman to sail around the world. In England he was a hero but the Spaniards considered him a pirate for plundering their ships in the West Indies. According to legend, he used an elevated spot on the Northside of St. Thomas as a lookout for arriving vessels. In 1933, Arthur Fairchild created an overlook there and called it Drake’s Seat. It provides a stunning view of Magens Bay in the foreground and Lovenlund Bay on the other side of the Peterborg Point peninsula.
