The island of St John is the smallest and most idyllic
of the three United States Virgin Islands. Two thirds
of this island is National Park, so its wonderful
beaches and green forest will remain unspoiled.
Only nine miles long and three miles wide, with spectacular
white sand, turquoise bays and green hills, you will
soon realize why St John is also called American Paradise.
When travelling to St. John, you will arrive into
the sister island of St Thomas, where only a twenty
minutes ferry ride will transport you into this unforgettable
place. The ferries leave St Thomas every hour and
will take you into the quiet town of Cruz Bay, the
center of all activities. Here you can find supermarkets,
pharmacies, great restaurants, bars, banks, the post
office, shopping malls and a laid back lifestyle that
makes this a favourite place to visit.
Getting around the island is easy and the roads to
the beaches are all paved. If you are a water sports
lover you will find numerous opportunities to enjoy,
from charter boats or catamarans, day excursions for
snorkelling, scuba diving or sport fishing. Activities
on land include hikes that you can take on your own
or with National Park guide, horseback riding, donkey
trail rides, exploring historic ruins and many more.
On the other end of the island, you can find the
town of Coral Bay, which is even quieter than Cruz
Bay but the area share the beauty of the incredible
beaches, wonderful nature trails, fabulous villas
and great places to eat and shop.
The constant trade winds of the region keep temperatures
between 70F and 90F year round; the perfect weather
for enjoying the breathtaking sights and experience
the most relaxing and unforgettable vacation of your
