St. John Vacation Villa of the Week

Swogjans Dragon
Swogjans Dragon Villa is located in the geographical center of St. John and has gorgeous views of Coral Bay and the British Virgin Islands. It is a three-bedroom, three-bath villa with pool and jacuzzi set on 1 1/2 acres of tropical forest high on a ridge saddle facing the cooling trade winds. A large pool, surrounded by oversize decks, gives you plenty of space to enjoy your vacation.

Located six miles from Cruz Bay but only a mile away from two of the best, least used beaches, Swogjan's Dragon offers comfort, quiet and relaxation.

Photo Gallery of St. John Attractions:

St. John is the prettiest of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Our villas and houses 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.


Snorkeling -- Trunk Bay. An easy drive or taxi ride from your St. John Villa. Always popular. Site of the famous underwater trail. Abundant sea life, both coral and fish. Trunk Bay 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, St. John Vacation Rentals - 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 short swim 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. Tip -- the best snorkeling at the far right.

St. John Villa Rental - Salt Pond Bay
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. Salt Pond Bay is 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 to Little Lameshur Bay. The road gets a bit rough.

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. Or take a beautiful hike from the National Park Headquarters in Cruz Bay 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 only 1/3 mile 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 some 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.

St. John House Rental - 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, opposite from the Post Office. 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. Order the chicken and ribs combo, and split it for two people. Sometimes there is a wait, since Joe's is quite popular.

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. A favorite with tourists. 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. Entertainment Friday and Sunday.

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.

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 $25 per person.

St. John Dive Shop - 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. The best advice is to have your villa owner/agent reserve a car for you, which they'll all gladly do.
