Paradise!!!!! The boat is a home away from home, and Darin, Captain Keech, knows the best places. Clear turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, the best snorkeling. Round Bay. Cinnamon Bay. Darin has all the gear on the boat. I loved having a swim platform. I could just walk right into the water and hop back up. And it has a... More

We were not surprised by this well deserved rating. Coral Bay is a precious jewel. Don't worry about large development destroying Coral Bay. It takes a village to save a bay and our local community along with visitors and the Friends of the National Park have worked together to stop these mega marinas. When you visit Coral Bay you'll see... More

This was our first trip to this wonderful island. We were looking for something a little off the beaten path and we ended up in paradise. Once we settled on St John, I searched dozens of listings looking for a great view and a place that my family could make life long memories at. The Pink Horses villa delivered that... More

This is a low key wonderful place. A true escape, except that I run into more people from New England here than anywhere else on earth. People are lovely, helpful and friendly.

This is an amazing little community well worth the 25 min drive from Cruz Bay! Incredible food, including The Triple B brunch food truck, fresh seafood lunches at Miss Lucy's and Vegetarian Night thursdays at Pickles. Locally made art and gifts found at locally owned shops like Island Muse, Maho Clayworks and Full Moon as well as a local artist... More

If you want a peaceful but fun vacation, Coral Bay is away from the crowds, is more laid back and has wonderful beaches. We have been visiting St. John for about 15 years now and on our last few visits we started staying on the Coral Bay side of the Island. It is wonderful. Lots of good restaurants, lots of... More

You should totally consider staying on this side of the island if you are looking for a true get away! You need a car but will not be disappointed. The views are stunning. The restaurants on this side of the island are awesome and very fun, in my opinion better then Cruz! It's also just quieter so you feel like... More

Such a nice and quiet little spot. It is great for the families and away from the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay. It is important to have a rental car if you are staying on this part of the island.

Lots of spectacular views as you descend to Coral Bay. You may encounter a goat or donkey on your way down especially in the afternoon. Very laid back area, gateway to Salt Pond and Lameshur on one end and the East End on the other. Both have stunning views as you drive. Besides Skinny Legs there are a few other... More
