St. John, USVI
St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands. It is east of St. Thomas and south of Tortola (a British Virgin Island). It is unique, and many say unspoiled, because 60% of St. John is a U.S. National Park – Virgin Islands National Park.
There is no airport on St. John, but many travel via the Cyril E. King Airport on nearby St. Thomas. A ferry service runs hourly from Red Hook, St. Thomas, thrice daily from Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, and daily from Tortola; regular ferries also operate from Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada. Once on St. John you must either rent a car or rely on taxi services.
Cruz Bay and Coral Bay are go-to destinations for dining and shopping.
St. John is a popular stop on day charters. Many opt to go bar hopping or snorkeling. Hot snorkeling spots include: Christmas Cove, Jost Van Dyke, Buck Island National Wildlife Refuge, Tortola, Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, Water Island, Lovongo Cay, Cooper Island, and Peter Island. There are also many hiking trails throughout the island. And of course, beaches galore.
