Do you ever get tired of seeing immaculate views? You know the kind: Scenery like vibrant-green jungle cliffs and turquoise waters and white-sand beaches. Yeah, neither do we. In fact, we could stare at pictures of St. Thomas all day, an island in the Caribbean home to views exactly like that. But you don't have to live vicariously through pictures, you can take a locum tenens assignment in the Caribbean right now if you'd like.

Here are four top sights in St. Thomas to check out once you arrive.

Magens Bay


Remember that scene we painted for you above (i.e., vibrant-green jungle cliffs, turquoise waters and white-sand beaches)? Well, you can experience that exact landscape at Magens Bay - St. Thomas' most popular beach.

Fort Christian


This is the oldest colonial building in the entirety of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It dates all the way back to 1680. This iconic red-brick building has been a town center, a government building and even a jail. It now serves as the St. Thomas Museum.

Blackbeard's Castle


You can tour this five-story watchtower yourself, or take a guided tour. After that you can take a dip in one of the three pools that sit beneath the Danish-built structure, complete with views of Charlotte Amalie, U.S. Virgin Islands' capital city.

Coral World Ocean Park


Located at Coki Point, this massive living aquarium is home to some awesome marine creatures. Head to the Caribbean Reef Encounter to witness hundreds of different fish native to the Caribbean. There's also the Shark Shallows where you can watch nurse, lemon, blacktip and reef sharks elegantly swim right before your eyes.
