St John, US Virgin Island

St John is the smallest of the three US Virgin islands in the Caribbean, the others being St Thomas and St Croix. It is the most undeveloped island of the three. With its sheer unspoiled beauty, pristine beaches, untouched forests and secluded coves, you’ll find yourself reconnecting with nature. It is a vacation paradise and the prettiest of the Virgin islands because of its world class beaches.

Two thirds of the island is a US National park, and has very restricted development. You can spend day after day on beach after beach, each with its own panoramic view. The beaches here are fine crystal white sand with turquoise clear waters, just unbelievably beautiful. The most spectacular and well-known of these is Trunk bay, which has consitenly been voted one of the “Ten best beaches in the world” by Conde’ Nast Traveler Magazine. Cinnamon bay is near by. Honeymoon bay, Coral bay, Reef bay, Caneel bay, Maho bay, Salomon bay…. are also wild nature beaches as well. Cruz bay has a popular shopping center called Mongoose Junction where you can find souvenirs for your trip.

This island is a perfect place for snorkeling, scuba diving, sport-fishing, and sailing. The land is a great place for biking, horseback riding, hiking with over two dozen trails maintained throughout the island. Despite the throngs of tourists, the beaches have a serene, almost abandoned feel.

It’s a fabulous place for a romantic wedding, a romantic getaway or an honeymoon. It’s a great place to refresh and relax your mind. This is our top favorite place to go on a beach vacation. We’ve been here three times in the last three summers in the row.
