Living in Deck Point: What you need to know
- Not too far from the territory’s capital. With Deck Point located on East End, the community is a bit of a drive to Charlotte Amalie.

Don’t worry; it’s a scenic route you won’t get tired of.
- Boating is a much-loved pastime in Deck Point. And with good reason. After all, the revered St. Thomas Yacht Club is only minutes away from the community. Residents of Deck Point will walk to and from the Club on Tuesday and Friday evenings – the two nights when dinner is served. Or they’ll take a stroll down for lunch – except on Mondays when the Club is closed.
