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

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.

Pretty good selection of souvenirs and gifts to shop. Good price range from very pricey items to neat little souvenirs.

My wife and I visited the US and British Virgin Islands for my 50th birthday and our 7th wedding anniversary. I had been shopping, on the Internet, for a specific piece of jewelry, to give my wife as an anniversary present. I discovered that Verace in the Warfside Village, in Cruz Bay, on St. John, was one of the artist's... More
