I visited Mongoose Junction countless times! I will never get tired of walking all the pathways to unique shops and restaurants. Kids will enjoy it because the architecture is built with nature in mind- trees and flora sprout everywhere and it feels like an enchanted village. Places to check out: the Fabric Mill, Sugarbirds, Hot Look Sunglasses, Bajo El Sol... More

Saphia at the Beauty Lounge did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it turned out fantastic! She was very friendly. I was nervous never having met her before and it being my big day, but she exceeded expectations and even tamed my frizz which is not an easy feat in the Caribbean. The jewelry store near her was...

Wanted to find a place to eat a late lunch and eat indoors with AC. Mongoose Junction was the perfect fit. Found a local who pointed us to a deli with great food and after cooling down and eating lunch we set off in the little tropical garden shopping village. Only a short walk from the ferry

Visited 8/5 on anniversary trip. Fascinating architecture with stores and restaurants on multiple levels. Had a bad experience with a cranky clerk at Caravan jewelry, but staff in other stores were pleasant and helpful. Most shops were air conditioned, so it was a nice break from the st. john heat.

If you're looking for unique gifts for taking home - this is the spot! This store offers locally made merchandise that isn't found in other stores and the prices aren't bad either.

This is a nice place to explore when you need a break from the sun. Lots of shops with some locally made items and many places have a decent happy hour.

Mongoose Junction is the closest thing you'll find to a mall in St. John. Several boutiques and restaurants comprise this open-air multi-level complex, and the overall feel is charming and comfortable. There are several great shops to poke into and discover unique items and apparel only found in St. John. Special mention to Caravan Jewelers, on the upper level next... More
