What to Do on St.John
We have visited St. John numerous times and still haven’t visited every place we’d like to, but here are links to some of our top highlights when we visit. In no particular order, of course!
Virgin Islands National Park
Virgin Islands National Park is comprised of 7,259 acres which is about 60% of the island of St. John. A true national treasure, the park also includes 5,650 acres of adjacent submerged lands. The park owns the ridge tops to the reefs providing protection and preservation for tropical and migrating birds, fish, corals and other marine life, as well as some 800 species of plants. The park itself is open every day with the Visitor Center, located in Cruz Bay, open every day from 8am to 4:30pm (Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas).
A trip to St. John requires a visit to the many amazing beaches! From snorkeling, to swimming, to simply relaxing with a good book and a cold beverage. Its possible to visit a different beach each day of your vacation! All beaches on St. John ARE OPEN! Amenities at each may be limited or under repair due to Hurricanes Irma and Maria. We provide a shade tent for your use at the beaches.
Snorkeling is one of the most popular activities on St. John. From sea turtles to tarpon to sting rays and beautiful coral formations, you’re likely to see some pretty amazing underwater sights. Remember to please look but not touch. We do provide some snorkeling gear for your stay.
Hiking on St. John ranges from easy, flat trails to guided trails featuring archaeological ruins to hilly, tree covered terrain with amazing look outs. Our favorites include Ram Head and the ruins at the Annaberg Sugar Plantation.
Day Trips by Boat
Nothing beats a day on the water! Enjoy a half day sail, sunset cruise or a full day trip to the nearby British Virgin Islands.
Why not spend a day or two of your vacation just relaxing at your beautiful home! Commonly referred to as “Villa Gravity”, Into the Mystic is a great place to spend your days. Swim in the pool, read a good book, take in the views from the balcony, soak in the Sundance Spa or nap in the hammock…
