Description

Like Rocky Balboa, you can't count Saint John out just because of its size. Despite being the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, it's easily one of the most beautiful. Thanks to two-thirds of the island being classified as national park land, St. Johns still looks like a postcard. Don't expect to find high-rise hotels or even an airport at St. John. If you want to visit, it's a quick ferry ride from St. Thomas. The entire island is so calm and relaxed that you don't even need to go to a spa to feel rejuvenated and healthier in body and mind. Soak up the warm sun, feel the soft golden sand between your toes, and listen to the waves gently lap the shore and you'll forget what it feels like to stress. If you can pull yourself from your beach chair, the island offers stunning views for hikes, camping, and even a few adrenaline filled adventure sports. The protected land almost guarantees a few animal sightings. And since you can't relax your body and mind without some good food in your belly, St. John offers everything from elegant dining to upbeat nightlife to quirky beach shacks.

    Spent about ten days on St. John at the end of May. Got lucky with the weather in the "off" season and absolutely loved. After traveling around the world, I still consider St. John's beaches to be the best, maybe only rivaled by some of the best ones in the Philippines. Many beaches, little to do in town. Some good day cruises available (went on a catamaran to British Virgin Islands and it was great). Driving is a mess - US cars but driving on the left side of the road so can't see anything going around the turns. Watch out for those trucks flying around the curves!
