I was married on Hawksnest Beach in July , 2004 (by Anne Marie Porter, a terrific minister) and you couldn't ask for a more beautiful spot for a ceremony. This particular beach has no facilities whatsoever (unless you include the small dirt parking lot and the single port-a-potty) so it is wild and unspoiled. Anne Marie had suggested Hawksnest to us and we are so glad we chose it. We were actually staying on St. Thomas but St. John is so much prettier. Magen's Bay in St. Thomas is supposed to be one of the world's nicest beaches but Hawksnest is 50 times more beautiful. I can't even describe how clear and blue the water is. We were watching rays and fish swim from the edge of the water. It gets very hot there in July and by 9:15 we were sweating! The plus side of going in the summer is that it is the offseason and prices are lower and there are less cruise ships. Some attractions, however, are closed or run infrequently during the offseason, which can be a bit of a bummer if you had your heart set on something specific to do.
Go see the beaches! They are the most beautiful in the world. Rent a jeep or catch a cab in Cruz Bay and set off, map in... more travel advice
St. John is about 3/4 national park so it is mostly undeveloped. Even in Cruz Bay, the main town, things are understated... more travel advice
