Caribbean Tourism

St John

St John is covered with steep hills and is hot. The roads are steep and rocky and require four-wheel drive to get to many places. A drive from Cruz Bay across to Coral Bay is a worthwhile experience and allows you to appreciate how much land is owned by the park, though there is not much in Coral Bay.


Skinny Legs is where the old hippies and liveaboard cruisers hang out. The population is mainly concentrated in the little town of Cruz Bay and the village of Coral Bay. Only 16 miles square, St John is about five miles east of St Thomas and 35 miles north of St Croix.
