Shopping

This is the best shopping in St John. Easy to get around and to find a refill on your drink as you shop. The parking is not so good. Even a small casino.

This is close to the ferry docks and has all sorts of stores around that kept us entertained. Of all the jewelry stores there we've seen, Vibe and Into the Blue caught our attention the most. I actually got a Larimar pendant from there. The other jewelry store that intrigued us was Bamboo Studio. I think we'll get a piece... More

We shopped at several of the local shops at the Wharfside Village. We found something for everyone. I found some amazing larimar jewelry at Vibe. If you are looking for cigars you have to check some of the jewelry stores. There are no actual cigar shops. Upstairs the has a snorkel shop with pretty reasonable prices. I like this shopping...

Wharfside Village wins the shopping wars for me! The prices are a bit more reasonable than Mongoose Junction and we were able to get some fabulous jewelry deals here. I wish I could remember the name of the store - it was next to St. John Spice (downstairs) and the rental kiosk. Absolutely fabulous store - I was able to... More

Wharfside was by far my favorite shopping experience while in the USVI. Two stores in particular, VIBE and BAMBOO STUDIOS were excellent experiences for us. WV is next door to the ferry so it is very easy to spend some time here while you wait for the hourly ferry. Several places to eat in the area, unique shops and a... More

Ok, while this is a nice shopping area...I specifically can not stay out of both ViBE stores here ( which stands for Virgin Island Blue Expressions). I bought a pendant and bracelet last visit and this time bought 2 hook bracelets. Since my original puchase several mThe gals are so patient and let you try stuff on with different combos.... More

Everything you need in one convenient location. Just steps from the ferry dock, Wharfside village has places for casual breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but a fancier option too. Great nightlife too. Shopping too - and very safe.

Great place to shop and eat. Shops are open later here than in other parts of town and there seems to be something for everyone.
