St. John Travel Guide: 201 reviews and 597 photos

As much as I was pleasantly surprised by St. Thomas I was unexpectedly disappointed by St. John. That isn’t to say that St. John isn’t spectacular – it is. White sand beaches, turquoise waters, green hills, and crumbling ruins are the order of the day. But so too is an endless stream of traffic, raging development, and a zoo-like atmosphere created by the themed restaurants and parade of tourists. Fortunately, nearly three-quarters of the island falls within the boundaries of the Virgin Islands National Park, meaning complete exploitation of the island is unlikely and escape is as easy as a short walk down one of the island’s many trails.
