St. John Villas


Introducing St. John

St. John, the “Emerald of the Caribbean,” is the smallest and most pristine island in the USVI, with about 60% of the island taken up by the Virgin Islands National Park. The parkland is gorgeous and varied, with over 20 hiking trails traversing verdant hills, salt ponds, mangroves, and some of the most unspoiled beaches in the Caribbean. 

Almost half of the protected parkland is underwater, leading to spectacularly maintained coral reefs and diverse marine life. Trunk Bay, widely considered one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, even offers an underwater snorkeling trail marked with information on the area’s fish and coral species. 

The island’s main port, Cruz Bay, is a vibrant and funky town home to most of the island’s shopping, bars, restaurants, and water sports facilities. Most guided land and water excursions depart from Cruz Bay, and a ferry connects Cruz Bay to Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook in nearby St. Thomas. 

St. John is the ideal laid-back destination for those looking for an escape into the beauty of the natural world – and when civilization calls, bustling St. Thomas is just a short ferry ride away.

Expert Tips

“There’s no airport on St. John, so you’ll have to fly in to St. Thomas and then take either the passenger ferry or the car barge to St. John. We recommend renting a car on St. Thomas (a Jeep is your best bet!), and if you have time before the ferry, take a trip to the supermarket before boarding the car barge; St. Thomas’s stores are much bigger and less expensive than those on St. John, so stock up on any supplies you need in St. Thomas. Then, once you land in St. John, you’ll be ready to head to your villa and relax.”  Tracy, USVI Villa Rental Specialist
