Is a 4X4 necessaryy to go to trunk bay and other popular beaches? Hubby and I are debating on is it worth spending a 100 more on a 4x4 and to barge the vehicle over, or drive to Red Hook to take the barge then a bus to trunk and other beaches. We have young children with us. We will be staying at the Frenchmans Cove. It is better to go on our own or spend the extra and take a tour over to St John? As you can tell, yup newbies, first trip to St Thomas and St John. I have quotes from Budget, Hertz, Discount. Any idea who is better and reliable? Thank you so much for your opinions!!!!
