Though known as one of the top shopping destinations in the Caribbean and an easy getaway for American travelers, St. Thomas also boasts some of the world’s top beaches and a wide assortment of recreation options. While excellent beaches can be found at all corners of the island, the stretch of sand regularly cited as one of the best overall beaches in the Caribbean region can be found along St. Thomas’ scenic northern coast. Magens Bay is an idyllic destination, a mile-long stretch of white sand dotted with palm trees. As this incredible beach remains largely undeveloped, there is also plenty of space to relax in the sand or play in the calm, blue waters offshore. Throughout the year, Magens Bay offers excellent opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, picnicking and a variety of other activities.

Despite being located on the windswept and dramatic northern shore of St. Thomas, Magens Bay has become one of the island’s best family-friendly beaches thanks to some unique geography. Unlike most of the beaches on the north end of the island, Magens Bay is protected by a pair of offshore peninsulas that prevent the steady Caribbean surf from entering the bay. As a result, the water offshore remains calm, warm and safe for family activities throughout the year. Activities like swimming and wading have become incredibly popular at Magens Bay, as the pebble-free sand extends well into the Caribbean Sea, adding to the comfort of the warm tropical waters. Magens Bay is also one of the island’s most successful public beach projects, as small entrance fees have helped St. Thomas implement regular maintenance, staff the beach with lifeguards and construct unmatched restroom and shower facilities. In recent years, a number of snack shacks have popped up along the beach, while several charming restaurants and bars rest within easy walking distance of the shore.

Magens Bay is also a great destination for water sports such as snorkeling, kayaking and sailing, as on-site rental shops offer affordable equipment and tour options. While interesting underwater sights can be found throughout the area, the secluded western end of the bay has become one of the northern shore’s most popular snorkeling sites. Home to a wide variety of tropical fish species, the placid cove found at the western end of the beach serves as one of St. Thomas’ most captivating, but family-friendly snorkeling sites. Families can also enjoy the calm water in kayaks, paddleboats and other unique watercrafts, or take part in sailing tours offshore where the consistent trade winds provide excellent recreation opportunities year-round.

Those that want to admire the beach at Magens Bay and the Caribbean Sea from above should visit the adjacent attraction known as Drake’s Seat. Perched atop the majestic seaside cliff beside Magens Bay, Drake’s Seat is rumored to have been a lookout for Sir Francis Drake, the famous 16th century colonial captain and explorer. Having seized command of St. Thomas, Drake is thought to have watched his own ships and encroaching vessels from this now popular scenic destination. Visitors to the site will find a bench perched on the highest point of the cliff and a view overlooking Magens Bay and the Caribbean Sea beyond. As a result, Drake’s Seat has become one of the most popular photographic destinations on the island, especially during the late afternoon and early evening hours when the setting sun highlights the exotic scenery. This popular sightseeing destination is visited by most of St. Thomas’ guided tours, but travelers with rental cars or recreational vehicles will also be able to reach the site with ease. Drake’s Seat is located just off Route 40, the main road running along St. Thomas’ northern shore.

Though Magens Bay attracts plenty of visitors throughout the year, this spacious beach always has ample room to relax or play in the water. As Magens Bay also promises a truly unique Caribbean experience – often more relaxed and family-friendly than many of the region’s most famous beaches – this charming coastal destination has become one of St. Thomas’ can’t-miss sights.

If not correctly taken care of, dog bites can be one of the most hazardous of all animal bites. Thousands of people pass-away every year because of rabies from dog bites. Many victims of animal bites have the tendency to dismiss the seriousness of such wounds because they think that they are not dangerous and can be treated with simple hand washing the wound or by just taking antibiotics. What they are unaware of is, this type of bite can lead to life-threatening infections, disability, deformity or even death.

Dog attacks can avoided in a number of ways. A good way is to put a safe distance between you and the suspicious mutt. One other method is to abstain from evoking attack from a dog. If you find yourself in stand-off with a suspicious dog, it is best to retreat very slowly and then walk away. Nevertheless, regardless of how cautious you try to be, there may come a time when you will experience such a situation. This is when it is handy to have some dog pepper spray around.

A dog pepper spray is an animal repellent used specifically against a threatening canine. It comes in an aerosol container which you can take along in your knapsack, handbag, or attach case. For further ease of use, you can even affix it to your belt or key chain. There are several advantages of using defense sprays. Once it is sprayed on the animal, the symptoms of dog pepper spray will be straightaway. The effects of the spray last long enough giving you enough time to get away from the animal to safety. The pepper spray will cause so much agony and discomfort that the dog will turn his attention from attacking you to recuperating from the burning sensation. If you a lover of animals, you don’t need to worry about these chemical substances because they do not cause lasting or critical injury to the animal. The effects of the spray are non-lethal and will disappear in about half an hour. One other reason why this type of animal repellent is used widely is because it is legal to use anywhere in America, providing it is used only for self defense. There may be restrictions in some cities or states, so always check your local law enforcement agency for any state’s ordinances covering the use of pepper sprays.

What is the difference between human pepper spray and dog pepper spray? The pepper resins in dog pepper spray are not as strong as the ones in the human edition. The amount of pepper resin present in this type dog repellent is typically less than half of the pepper resin in human spray. In case of a crisis, you could use human grade pepper spray to stop a dog attack but not a dog grade pepper spray on attacking villains because it will be ineffective.

Although you may be a dog enthusiast, you may still need certain defense from these animals that try to attack you. By nature, all animals are unpredictable, so never underestimate a dog’s capacity to injure you. Carrying a dog pepper spray is one effectual and animal-friendly approach to protect yourself and your family from possible dog attacks.

These delicious appetizers are typically dough turnovers that are filled with parsley and cheese. They are baked to be golden brown and amazingly crispy. The texture is light and are best when they are served hot. There are many different cheeses that can be used to make this food item, but it’s usually a combination of Monterey Jack, Feta and Ricotta cheeses. They are very simple and aren’t too fancy, which will be great for those not so “open” eaters at the wedding.

Meal Item #1: Baba Ganoush

This is actually one of the most well known food item from the Middle East and Mediterranean area. You’ve probably heard of this food many times if you’ve never actually eaten it before. This dish is really just eggplant that is mashed up and mixed with many different seasonings along with virgin olive oil. Some other common food items that you will find in this dish are diced tomatoes, onions, potatoes, and more. You can have whatever type of vegetables you wish added to the dish.

Some of the seasonings that are commonly added to the mixture of eggplant and vegetables are garlic, parsley, salt, tahini, lemon juice, mint, and white vinegar. Many like to add Cumin or chili powder to the mix to give it a bit of an extra kick. The eggplant and other items in the mixture are typically rolled together to make it much easier to eat. This is a true Armenian meal and will be a definite hit with your guests at the wedding.

Meal Item #2: Sou-Berag

This is very similar to American lasagna. It contains no meat, which is good for vegetarians that attend the wedding. It is a layered casserole that is made with noodles and feta cheese.

Feta cheese is not the only type of cheese that is in this dish, there is also curd cottage cheese, Jack cheese and Ricotta cheese.

Meal Item #3: Barbecued Lamb Chops

They will be seasoned to taste with seasons such as mint leaves, basil leaves, parsley and salt and pepper.

Dessert Item: Khunami Khop

The funny thing about this dessert is that Armenian men and women create it to impress the family of someone they want to marry. This is why it’s a very clever dessert to place at your wedding! This dessert is simply a very small amount of dough that is drizzled with honey or syrup all around it.

What happens to the dough is that it expands, getting larger and larger making the eater believe that it’s really much more dough than it really is. This is why it’s typically called “fool the in-laws” dessert. The young man or woman is trying to fool the family of their special someone into believing they have a bit more money than they really do. It’s a silly traditional dessert but it sure is delicious!

Above, you were given at least one food for each category of the meal at a wedding. There are many other great Armenian food items that you can serve at your wedding, these are just the most traditional and popular. Your guests will love the wide variety of foods that they have never tried before and you will love getting your loved ones to try something new and exciting!
