St. John is located four miles east of St. Thomas, USVI and four miles southwest of Tortola, BVI. It is the most verdant & mountainous Virgin Island, king a dream destination for eco-travelers and honeymooners who want privacy.

History
Arawak Indians, migrating northward in canoes from South America, lived here as early as 710 BC.

Attractions
This is not an island of many man-made attractions. But that also means short lines for everything.

Beaches
Trunk Bay, Jumpy Bay and Francis Bay are the highlights, but there are more than first meets the eye.

Eco-Travel
On an island 2/3rds national park, expectations for lagoons, trails, vistas & birdlife will be exceeded.

Travel Tips
Considering during Three Kings Day, MLK Day, President’s Day or Emancipation Day.
