Check out Big Planet for a great selection of t-shirts. The St. John National Park Shop has nice t-shirts and gifts - and also supports the National Park. Great place to spend a couple of hours and before heading back to the beach!

We wanted to do some shopping while on St. John and this is actually the only place to go. There are a number of shops and a couple of restaurants. I purchased some jewelry for myself and some t shirts for grandchildren. Really not much else there....

Very overrated shopping area close to port. Very inferior to St Thomas. Poor choice of goods. Disorganised area mads worse by rain. Won't be back

Hi Chris So sorry you didn't enjoy as much as we both would have liked. Mongoose Junction is an open air venue, with lush terraces and walkways that meander and adjoin our 30 shops and restaurants, built with native stone and gorgeous mahogany, so when it rains heavily as it sometimes does this time of year, some of the charm...

We are residents of St. Thomas (1 year) and had a friend in from NY. We took her over to St. John since we haven't been there yet (we're "workaholics ☺️) and we stopped at Mongoose Junction. I love the variety of shops...there's literally something for just about everyone!!! Parking was a bit difficult because it was Halloween and the... More

Thanks, CB Glad you enjoyed and Halloween here is very special to us because of the number of children and families that come out for trick or treating in the afternoon. The parking is usually ample (and FREE!) but special events here can make it a tad more difficult. Hope to see you again soon. More

This was a great break from a big beach day! Nice shops and cute bars and restaurants. Lots of jewelry and crafts. There are also two places to rent snorkel gear to head over to Maho bay or any of the other beaches. There is also information kiosks that can assist with how to get around the island. Parking is...

We came here during the last day of our 5-day stay on St John. We knew from previous experience that a lot of business shut down or have limited hours during October, but it was still a disappointment to see all five art galleries closed when we arrived. That having been said, Bamboula was a hit and well worth the... More

Thanks KM! Yes, it's the off season on St. John and with so many of our stores being locally owned and operated, some do take down time in Sept and Oct. to do maintenance, renovate and also to relax a bit while they can do so. As we go into the season, beginning in November, our guests will find most... More

Caravan Gallery has a wonderful selection of well priced jewelry. I recommend stopping in if you're looking for a inexpensive piece to remember your trip by.

We really liked Mongoose Junction! Difficult to describe - the architecture is very unique and creative. Lots of shade. In certain places they built around large existing trees. Go to the Tap Room and Ocean Grill (I think that's the place) to see what I mean. Mongoose Junction has a wide variety of shops: restaurants, pub, jewelry stores, clothing stores,... More

Great place to shop on St John. Short walk from the ferry terminal. Good selection of shops and restaurants. Prices are average to anywhere else on island.

Mongoose Junction offers a lot of things inside. Everything from food, bars, deli and of course shopping. We enjoyed walking through the shops. Lots of diversity between shops. Bought a couple of t-shirts and Christmas ornament. We ate at Sun Dog Cafe for lunch and it was outstanding.
