We are headed back to STJ for our 3rd visit. We are not renting a jeep -- I know, I know, but please no posts telling us we are crazy not to! We have driving issues (DH) and motion sickness issues (DH and DD) and the DH just wants to be a lump on this vacation!
What I am trying to decide is if we should go to the effort to go to another STJ beach for the day even though we have 7 gorgeous beaches to pick from at Caneel. We'd want to stay on the north shore area as I'll never be able to talk them into the trip over to Coral bay and the East end, although I plan on a future trip where we'll stay in that area.
I've been to Trunk and the only reason to go there is to show my daughter in person the beach that has the photograph framed in our guest bathroom!
I was thinking Maho simply because it is so large and lovely and calm waters with good snorkeling. However, we are taking a private charter one day, so we'll have great snorkeling already, both in the BVIs and wherever on the north shore we want to be. We are only staying 6 nights, so with the full day BVI trip, we only have four full days on STJ.
I know this decision is partly personal preference, but it's been years since I spent time on STJ and at Caneel (2006). Our last trip to STJ was also a Caneel trip with our daughter when she was very young so we chose Caneel knowing we could just stay put and not do alot of day driving trips.
What do to?? should we stay or should we go?
