Snorkeling is one of the top reasons people visit St. John and with close to 20 beaches to explore, with each new beach comes a new adventure. From a shallow entry and calm waters at Maho Bay, to the underwater snorkel trail at world famous Trunk Bay to lesser known beaches such as Hansen Bay and Brown Bay. Snorkeling allows you to explore a whole new world under the water where you can see a large variety of fish, sea turtles, coral reefs and more. When you’re done snorkeling, rent a paddle board or kayak or simply relax in a beach chair and take in the stunning views.
Family Time or Time as a Couple
Families of all ages enjoy St. John to get away from the day to day activities of life. There are many places to explore and create memories together. Take a hike and search for hermit crabs, snorkel with a sea turtle, swim in the pool, or take in the views at one of the various overlooks.
Get Away from It All
Whether you’re at the beach, pool side or in your suite, relaxing comes easy on St. John! Grab a great book, a cold beverage and let all your worries slip away. We provide comfy beach chairs to take with you to the beach and the pool deck has plenty of loungers for a nice afternoon nap.
Enjoy a Night Out
Within walking distance of your suite, you will find many opportunities to partake in a cold, tropical beverage and a delicious meal. Cruz Bay is a small quaint town with beach bars, casual restaurants and upscale dining – whatever you desire. We’d be happy to suggest some of our favorites!
Visit Historical Sites
St. John is home to several historical sites, including the Annaberg Plantation which was one of 25 active sugar factories on island. Several ruin sites include remnants of slave quarters, sugar mills, boiling mechanisms and more. Many of these sites include interactive signage which explains the history as well as the flora and fauna of the area.
Take a Hike
Home to the US Virgin Islands National Park, St. John offers you hiking trails of various abilities. Grab a trail map at the park office and choose your hike for the day. Some of our favorites include the Ram Head Trail which passes by two distinct beaches with amazing views of the south eastern part of the island. We also enjoy the Reef Bay Trail, a sub tropical trail which can be explored via a ranger guided hike or all on your own. The trail ends at scenic Reef Bay where you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the ocean.
