Island Attractions

We suggest you visit the National Park’s Cruz Bay Visitor Center, located across the road from Marina View Village. This is useful resource for tourist information services, such as ranger-led tours, brochures, maps, and educational materials. The Center is open daily, except Federal Holidays, until 3pm.

Lind Point Trail/Salomon Beach/Honeymoon Beach

Discover this 2.3-mile loop trail right outside the door of your apartment! Generally considered an easy route, the trail first ascends 0.4 miles to scenic Lind Point overlook (elev. 160ft) and then at 0.7 miles, a side trail leads down to Salomon Beach and slightly further on, to Honeymoon Beach – two of the most beautiful, white-sand beaches in the Caribbean. Please note that there are no restroom facilities or refreshments available at either beach.

Day Trip to the BVI

It’s more about the journey than the destination! Traveling between St. John and the British Virgin Islands is a truly enchanting experience, as you explore the little chain of cays and islands through the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Book a day trip – either with a group or as a private charter – with one of the many companies on St. John and while itineraries vary, most offer stops at Virgin Gorda’s famous “Baths”, Peter Island, and Jost Van Dyke. Leaving St. John around 7:30am and returning around 6pm, it’s a long day aboard a motorized boat, but it will give you memories to last a lifetime – remember to take your passport!

Sunset Sail

Whether you're a photographer looking to shoot during the warm glow of the golden hour, or you just want to take in the sunset from aboard your own chartered boat, this experience is for you. Arrange a charter with any number of St. John companies and then hop aboard your private vessel and set sail, with the chance to stop and snorkel, visit area beaches, or simply relax with some light refreshments before the sun sets into the sea. This the perfect way to experience a balmy, tropical evening and anticipate what the following day will bring.

Island Tour

Investigate the many opportunities to enjoy your own private, personalized tours of St. John. Explore the island with a one of our taxi drivers in their often very colorful, open-sided, safari-style taxi cabs. The drivers add their local knowledge and personal recollections of island life, local culture, and share some of our history and lore learned from their St John ancestors, with stops along the way for photo opportunities. Experience the breathtaking views of Caneel Bay, Trunk Bay, Hawksnest, Cinnamon Bay, Maho Bay and much more. From the Bordeaux Mountain, enjoy an incredible view down to Coral Bay and the East End of St John, and to the British Virgin Islands beyond. A half-day tour will introduce you to the different areas of St. John and hopefully encourage your own individual exploration.

Reef Bay Trail

This is a strenuous hike that will take you past some of the oldest and tallest trees on the island. Danish sugar plantation ruins and ancient rock carvings left behind by the pre- Colombian Taino can be found along the trail. During rainy season the waterfall can be spectacular. Signs along the trail provide information regarding the plants, their traditional uses and other interesting information regarding the days of the sugar plantations. This trail is steep in places, uneven and rocky, and can be slippery even when dry –be sure to wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and take plenty of water, some snacks and a lunch, and a hat. Mosquito repellent is a good idea, too, and a swimsuit if you'd like to take a dip in the ocean down at the beach at the end of the trail. From the trailhead to the beach is about three miles one way and remember it’s uphill on the way back!

The Annaberg Historic District

Administered by Virgin Islands National Park, Annaberg is located east of Mary Point accessible by the North Shore and Leinster Bay Roads, on St. John's north shore. The Annaberg Plantation is one of several St. John's plantations owned in the 1720s and 1730s by Frederick Moth, the first Danish Governor of St.Croix and, later, the Governor General of the Danish West Indies. By the early 19th century, Annaberg, one of St. John's biggest sugar producers, also produced molasses and rum for export. The historic district's extensive ruins include a windmill tower, factory, quarters for the enslaved workers and other structures associated with sugar production. Regular ranger-led tours of the plantation are available, which may be booked at the Cruz Bay Visitor Center; there is a fee for adults. Or you can taxicab there, or simply drive yourself (parking at the bottom of the hill). Best of all are the spectacular views towards the BVI – so take your camera!
