Cruz Bay

Cruz Bay is the main town where you arrive on the ferry from St. Thomas. St. John does not have an airport, so this is your first stop on the island. My wife and I decided to stay in Cruz Bay, as this was our first trip to St. John and we wanted to be 'in town' to be able to explore by foot. We were not disappointed! We stayed at Gallow's Point resort which is a short 5 min walk from the ferry dock. This was a superb location to stay at in order to enjoy the downtown, while still being in a great resort that was 'secluded'.
We rented a Jeep for the entire week that we spent there so that we could travel to all of the north shore beaches and Coral Bay. Perfect vacation!!! Will definitely look to return some day.


Awesome snorkeling in St. John! We snorkeled at every beach we went to, and were not disappointed with any of them! We saw turtles, rays, sharks, so many colorful fish...it was great. Highlights for snorkeling were Waterlemon, Maho, and Salt Pond.
