St John

St. John is the smallest of the US Virgin Islands at just 28 square miles but is also one of the most popular islands in the USVI. The island is lush and tropical and two thirds of the island consists of a National Park.

There are no airports or cruise-ship docks, and the usual Caribbean resorts are few and far between. It's blissfully low-key compared to its neighbour St Thomas. St. John offers incredible views from all parts of the island. Here you can spend day after day on the beach, each with its own panoramic view.

The island has some stunning vacation homes, such as the Retreat Villa, Great Turtle Villa, and Villa Carlota, which offer panoramic views of white beaches, emerald cays, and turquoise waters. A nature lover's favourite, St. John offers hiking, camping, specialty shopping and breathtaking views.

If you take just a few hours to visit this island, you'll find it well worth the trip.


 

Cruz Bay

Nicknamed ‘Love City,’ St John’s main town is full of fun. Cruz Bay is the place to organize your hiking, snorkeling, kayaking and other activities, and to enjoy a great selection of restaurants all within walking distance of the ferry docks.
