The most accessible and best preserved of its type, this once-working sugar plantation (circa 1870) was the site of boiling molasses and hardworking slaves harvesting sugarcane, and which now offers visitors regular tours and living-history...more

Really enjoyed this walk. The ruins did sustain some damage from the hurricane but still a great site to see. The views are great and the 2 volunteer rangers were informative. We took kids ages 2, 4, 6, & 8 and they were fine. Just...More
The plantation had more donkeys than any other venue. The ruins and the views were fantastic. Francis Bay Beach, nearby (about 1 mile) was also excellent. We visited 40 years ago and happy we came back.
This was a stop on a tour in an open air safari bus as is typical for the area. We were given a tour of the old ruins and some new facilities before some free samples of the rum produced there. These can be bought...More
Our group of six visited the Annaberg ruins on Tuesday. It sure was a beautiful view from the overlook and the stone ruins made a nice backdrop for a few photos.
There were placards around to give a brief description of the ruins. However, it...More
For us history buffs this is a cool place to check out. It was nice to see the historical aspect of this island, and be able to see that there is more to this island than beautiful beaches. Recommend going on a cooler day though....More
Yes. Actually you can only do self guided tours. Park at the lot or in the side of the road and take the stairs up. Half an hour will do. Bring snorkelling gear and do Marys Creek which is in front of the parking lot, where... More

yes.. however.. just think of it like this.. for many people this place is like Auchswitz.. people were murdered, raped and worked to death in this place. If you wouldn't carve your name into the wall at a Nazi death camp... More
yes.. however.. just think of it like this.. for many people this place is like Auchswitz.. people were murdered, raped and worked to death in this place. If you wouldn't carve your name into the wall at a Nazi death camp, then you probably shouldn't do it at a slave camp either. Just my opinion... but to answer you, yes this is the same place

Leaving for STT in 2 1/2 weeks lots of questions (13 Replies)
What and where are the supermarkets that offer the best deals/sales and cheapest prices for basic items like fruits, veggies, bottled water, cereals, milk, bread, eggs, snacks etc.? Where can I get the best deals on liquor? There will be no ships in port at all next month when we will be visiting STT, how will that effect the shopping areas and which attractions will be closed most definitely? Where is the best snorkeling in STT/STJ? Will it be possible for us to visit...More

I am curious about your comment "there will be no cruise ships in port at all next month"............When would that be and why? I am going to STJ Sept 20. Where did you get that info? Also, I have been to STJ a couple times and think you are planning too much for one day, just my opinion.

St John Forum Thank-You (2 Replies)
I wanted to let everyone know how much I appreciate the forums. I used the St. John forum and the reviews for the island to make my choices for pretty much everything we did on the island. My total take on St. John is I am coming back and sooner than later. Everyone we met was very very friendly. The food was fantastic whether we were dining at ZoZo's or an unknown chinese restaurant called 420 in Cruz Bay. (This restaurant was a tremendous surprise and one that my group will be talking...More

Thank you for reporting back! We also fell in love with 420. The laid back vibe, super cheap beers and wonderfully spicy Asian food won us over immediately.
DIY fly fishing on St. John (Bonefish, tarpon and permit) (2 Replies)
This is more of what I learned from just returning from St. John. Yes, you can DIY fly fish on St. John. ALL beaches are public and it's just getting to the beach is what's needed. Don't trespass on private property getting to the beach. I spent two half days DIY fly fishing on the island. During that time, I casted to bonefish, permit and tarpon. Yes, permit. 1-Mary's Creek. North side of island and park at the Annaberg Sugar Plantation parking lot. Walk in and fish left. There is...More

Hello- I'm going to St. John in a couple of weeks. Were you able to fish for any larger Tarpon? If so, where did you find them? Thanks. Dan, Boulder, CO
