Imagine the most tranquil island on earth. Chances are you're thinking of St. John. Though it is the smallest of the three U.S Virgin Islands, St. John's unspoiled beauty is perhaps the greatest found anywhere in the Caribbean.
The natural beauty of the Caribbean, St. John offers visitors pristine splendor amid modern luxuries. Originally settled by the Arawak and Carib Indians, the island has a history as rich as its landscape. The United States purchased St. John from the Danish West India and Guinea Company in 1917, and in 1956, Laurance Rockefeller donated over 5,000 acres of land to the National Park Service. With two-thirds of the island designated as national forest, St. John has some of the world's most beautiful beaches, like the much-beloved Trunk Bay. This blue flag-rated and ADA-accessible beach is renowned for its crystal sands and underwater nature trail, and visitors have an array of nearby accommodations from which to choose, including upscale resorts and intimate eco-tents.
Savor the opportunity on St. John to sample the range of indigenous Caribbean cuisine, from mouthwatering seafood to BBQ and jerk dishes that will have you reaching for a refreshing island beverage.
Known for its laid-back vibe, St. John will delight you with its romantic and low-key evening atmosphere. Enjoy the contagious beats of calypso by the beach, jazz in an open-air bar, or just let loose and sing at one of the popular karaoke bars.
Visit St. John for its unspoiled beauty, and stay for the unforgettable memories.
