St. John, often mistakenly called St. John's Island, is the third largest of the US Virgin Islands. The combination of forty beaches and the fact that three fifths of the island is preserved as the Virgin Islands National Park by the US National Parks Service, makes St. John the jewel of the US Virgin Islands.
On St. John, visitors will find all levels of accommodations, from the most luxurious hotels to the Maho Bay Eco-tents and many in between. St. John hotels, should be booked in advance, The Westin, Caneel Bay and Gallows Point tend to sell out way in advance. The island offers plenty of shopping, all levels of food service and types of restaurants, some of the worlds most beautiful beaches shaded by Seagrape trees, and Coconut Palms, ancient petroglyphs, wonderful ruins to explore, crystal blue-green waters teeming with coral reef life and tropical forests providing habitat for over 800 species of plants. Visitors should also keep an eye out for iguanas, mongooses (or mongoose them locally), deer, sheep, goats, donkeys and far too many species of bird to mention. Snakes won't be seen though; there are none on St. John.
Whether one is seeking the perfect honeymoon spot, the most beautiful place in America for a wedding, a fun family vacation, camping in paradise, hiking America's most breathtaking national park, snorkeling, sun worshiping, night life or just some well deserved peace and quiet, America's Paradise- St. John, USVI is the answer.
