St. John Travel Guide: 170 reviews and 543 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.
