Create an itinerary including Blackbeard’s Castle
Learn about the Caribbean's pirate-filled past at Blackbeard’s Castle, a lookout tower located on a historical site. Built in 1679, the tower reaches a height of 12 m (40 ft) and has walls 1.8m (6 ft) thick, allowing excellent visibility of, and protection of, incoming enemies. Nowadays, the top of the tower offers extensive views of the town and its harbor, while downstairs you'll find three sparkling swimming pools. Plunge into the water to relax after a long day spent plundering the high seas. Blackbeard's here too, in the form of a 4.2 m (14 ft) bronze statue. Put Blackbeard’s Castle and other Charlotte Amalie attractions into our Charlotte Amalie trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Mr Teach's exquisite Hotel.. All are welcome 👍🏻
  • I wish it had been open, but the building itself from the outside was nice. Lovely garden areas surrounding the Castle.
