Photo Gallery of St. John Attractions:

St. John is the prettiest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Our rental villas are all within easy access of the many shops, bars, restaurants, and activities of Cruz Bay or Coral Bay. Visit the beaches in the National Park, like Caneel, Hawksnest, Trunk, Cinnamon, Maho, Francis, Leinster. Or take a drive to Lameshur or Salt Pond Bay in Coral Bay for some quiet relaxation. See below for some of our favorite places on St. John.

Beaches

Snorkeling -- Trunk Bay. An easy drive or taxi ride from your St. John Villa. Tried and true. Site of the famous underwater trail. Abundant sea life, both coral and fish. Can get crowded mid-day, since it is so popular, so go in the mornings or late afternoons for sunset. Restrooms, showers, and a snack bar/lunchroom are available. The only St. John beach with an admission charge -- $4 per person per day, or get a 1-year family pass for only $15. The admission is good for both Trunk Bay and Annaberg, where you can have a guided tour through ruins of an old sugar cane plantation.

St. John Villa Rental - Waterlemon Cay
Waterlemon Cay from Leinster Bay

Advanced Snorkeling -- Waterlemon Cay. If you are adventurous, take a short hike from Annaberg to Leinster Bay's Waterlemon Cay for some spectacular snorkeling. You'll see numerous starfish during a swim from the point to the Cay, and then will enjoy colorful corals and numerous reef fish.

Water Sports -- Cinnamon Bay. Home of a campground. St. John's longest and widest beach. You can rent kayaks, windsurfers, snorkel equipment, small boats, etc., and enjoy yourselves in a very wide, safe bay with powdery white sand. Cinnamon has restrooms, showers, and a small, casual restaurant. Snorkel at the far right.

Beach at Salt Pond Bay

Picnic and Swim -- Salt Pond Bay. Past Coral Bay. Find it on the map and take a drive. There is a walk from the road down to the beach, so pack light. A beautiful horseshoe-shaped bay with a few picnic tables in the shade on shore and one bathroom. Medium snorkeling, but a great place to swim with warm, quiet water. And stop off at Skinny Legs afterwards for some great food, cheap. For the adventurous, keep going on this road and go to Little Lameshur Bay.

Picnic tables in the shade
Picture Perfect (and clothing optional at times) -- Solomon Beach. Between Cruz Bay and Caneel Bay. Two routes -- Go to Caneel, park in the parking lot (there is a charge), walk towards the ocean, and find and follow a dirt road along the ocean to the left. Pass Honeymoon Beach, and then continue through the woods to Solomon. The other, slightly longer route starts in the National Park Headquarters in Cruz Bay and goes through the woods to Salomon. No picture. You'll have to see for yourself. Caution -- the Park Rangers often check the beach for proper attire, and sometimes catch some naturalists. This beach is a beauty.

Sunset -- Frank Bay. A small beach just outside (south) of Cruz Bay, and perfectly oriented facing west. A beautiful panorama of islands is visible, including Stephen's Cay, Great and Little St. James, St. Thomas, and several smaller cays. Bring a glass of wine and sit in one of the beach chairs that local residents have left on the beach for sunset viewing. On Wednesdays during high season, Elaine Estern at Coconut Coast Art Studio holds a cocktail party from 5:30 - 7:00. Guests are welcome. Come look at the beautiful art.

Restaurants

Sputnik Restaurant - Now Donkey Diner
Good homemade sign, good homemade food

Breakfast -- Sputnik is now known as Donkey Diner, Coral Bay. Good everything. If you are hungry, try the Sampler, or the Blueberry Pancake special. A good alternative in Coral Bay is Pickle's Deli, just up the road.

Lunch -- Uncle Joe's Barbecue, Cruz Bay. Here is the complete menu: Chicken, Ribs, Chicken and Ribs, Steak. Each comes smoked with a delicious barbecue sauce, and two side dishes. Cheap and good. Try a chicken and ribs combo, and split it for two people. Sometimes there is a wait, since Joe's is quite popular.

Joe's Barbecue
Follow the aromas, and enjoy

Delicious food inside

West Indian Snack -- Comfee's, Cruz Bay, in a little kiosk near the fire station. Have a Paté, or Johnnycake, or a stew, or some fried chicken, or the daily special. Not always open, but drop in when you see people there.

Fish Trap Restaurant
Treats from the sea

Moderate Dinner -- Two-way tie for first -- The Fish Trap, Cruz Bay. Fresh fish, served in a variety of ways. Good service, good prices. Owned by a longtime resident who is a trained chef.

Morgan's Mango, Cruz Bay. Generous platters of delicious foods, and a variety of cuisines. Enormous salads. Often entertainment during high season. Or take a trip Coral Bay and eat a great meal at Aqua Bistro, which in now my favorite since we moved to that side of the island.

Morgan's Mango Restaurant
Next to Mongoose Junction
Chateau Bordeaux Restaurant
Attractive dining room and fine service

Upscale Dinner -- Chateau Bordeaux, Bordeaux Mountain. Management has changed, and we prefer Zozo's at this point. A number of other Cruz Bay restaurants are fine.

Chateau Bordeaux Restaurant
See British Virgin Islands from your table

Italian -- Café Roma, Cruz Bay. Genuine Italian, and that says it all. Very popular and busy during high season. I like the baked penne. Good pizza. Fresh bread with herb oil for dipping. Cafe Roma had a fire in 2013, and is going to re-open in a few months.

Miss Lucy's Restaurant
Sit right on the water

Sunday Brunch -- Miss Lucy's, Coral Bay. Right on the water. Sit outdoors under the trees. Very popular and worth the drive. Classic eggs benedict and Florentine, usually accompanied by a small jazz combo. You may have the company of a local goat or chicken trying to share your food.

Sunset View -- Zozo's, Cruz Bay. Fine dining, with sunset views over Pillsbury Sound. Enjoy cocktails while the sun sets, and then have a romantic dinner. Next to Gallow's Point, with terrific service.

Good Food Cheap -- Skinny Legs, Coral Bay. An institution, proudly claiming "Same Day Service." Best hamburgers on St. John. Casual. Rub shoulders with the local folk. A must. You might see me there, since I live nearby. On Sundays in football season, there will be four games on simultaneously.

Lunch, snacks, dinner, drinks

Bars

Beach Bar Restaurant
Enjoy beverages on the beach.

On the Beach -- The Beach Bar, Cruz Bay. A popular local watering hole, often with live music. Good snack and sandwich/burger menu. Friendly, and excellent ambience.

Sports Bar -- Just Pepe's, Coral Bay. Go here if you are from Boston, or enjoy baseball photos. Actually, the food isn't bad, and it's right on the water. Pepe claims he serves the best hot wings on St. John.
OOPS - Pepe moved to Florida, and Pepe's is now Island Blues, with a local atmosphere and karaoke.

Just Pepe's Restaurant - Now Aqua Bistro
Plenty of big games

Beers at Happy Hour prices daily.

Happy Hour -- Woody's, Cruz Bay. The afternoon crowd spills out from here into the road. Very cheap beers and mixed drinks for a few hours each day. A happy place.

Duffy's
You can't miss the Love Shack

Dancing/Disco/Dating -- Duffy's Love Shack, Cruz Bay. Keeps changing owners/name. But still for the young set.

Duffy's
Come late and dance
Quiet Mon Pub
Everyone welcome

Late Night -- The Quiet Mon Pub, Cruz Bay. In season, stays open until 4:00 A.M. As other bars close, the patrons end up here. Finally, The Quiet Mon closes, and Cruz Bay goes to sleep. The St. Patrick's Day and 4th of July Parades end here each year. A must.

Good Drinks Cheap -- Skinny Legs, Coral Bay. See above under restaurants. Every island should have a place this good.

Signs

St. John Villa Rental Road Sign
Stay lef mon

Painted in Street -- East End, Coral Bay. A reminder of which side of the road to drive on. A photo of this street sign won an award in a Caribbean photo contest.

No parking -- Cruz Bay. The pastor's own spot. Somehow, this sign seems to work. I have never seen a car parked here illegally.

No Parking Sign
And no-one does.
Bugers and Frys
Some local color

Original Spelling -- Cruz Bay. We ate here once, but avoided the bugers and frys.

Mischievous Alteration -- Coral Bay, just before Island Blues. On the other side of this roadside dip in Coral Bay, the warning sign reads "Land Crab Dip". Both classics, and now they are on internet for everyone to admire.

Clam Dip Sign
Slow down for the clams

Miscellaneous

Fred's Nightclub
Good action twice a week

Music at Night -- Fred's, Cruz Bay. Go Weds. or Friday, and be prepared to dance. The small cover charge is worth it, or just listen to the music from the street and sway with your sweetie. Eventually, you can't resist, and you'll be drawn in.

Hiking Trip -- Reef Bay. Get brochures at the National Park Headquarters in Cruz Bay, or at Trunk Bay. The trail slopes down about 2.2 miles from the road to a beautiful bay, where you get picked up by boat and driven back to Cruz Bay. Around $15 per person, and worth it. Very popular, so reserve as early in your trip as possible. Or, if you want, just go by yourself, down and back up for free.

Art Studio -- Coconut Coast Gallery, Frank Bay. Watercolors by local artist Elaine Estern. Right on the water. Drive up, park, and walk right in. Calendars, prints, originals, souvenirs. Elaine has a cocktail party every Wednesday from 5:30 - 7:00 during high season. Public invited.

St. John Spice Company
Shop here or on internet

Shop For Souvenirs -- St. John Spice, Dockside in Cruz Bay, right next to the ferry. Loads of interesting teas, spices, artifacts, clothes, etc., etc., for the folks back home. Ask for Ruth or Run, ex-Bostonians.

Diving -- Two dive shops, both in Cruz Bay, both good. Check them out before your trip. Low Key Watersports. Cruz Bay Watersports.

Low Key Watersports
Car rental -- St. John is a fabulous island to explore, and we recommend a car rental for some or all of your stay. There are about 15 agencies on St. John. Similar cars, similar rates. The best advice is to have your villa owner/agent reserve a car for you, which they'll all gladly do.

Goats and sheep and cows -- Along Centerline Drive between Cruz Bay and Coral Bay.

Wedding or Honeymoon on St. John

Thinking of getting married on St. John? Good choice! Many happy couples do this. In fact, our wedding officiates and wedding planners are always very busy. Your St. John Wedding can be on a beach or a boat, in a church, or in a luxury villa. Any size ceremony, from two people to hundreds.

Here are some tips. The marriage is legal and recognized in the US since St. John is part of the US. All of the paperwork and marriage application can be done by mail prior to your arrival. Send a certified check or money order to the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands for the Application Fee of $50 and License Fee of $50. There is no residency requirement - but you do need to have your application for a license in the court 8 working days prior to your wedding date. There is an 8-day waiting period, so make sure you apply in plenty of time.

If you plan to arrive in the Virgin Islands any day M-F, you can stop at the court after you arrive on St Thomas. The office is open from 8-5 M-F and 10-12 noon on Sat. Tell the taxi driver at the airport this is what you want to do. Once you submit your documents to the court with your marriage application, call them prior to your arrival to ensure they have received the application. The ladies at the court are efficient and process many, many applications.
